Oct. 20-24, 2014
During the week of October 20-24 communities across the state of Texas will recognize Chamber of Commerce Week. This week is a time set aside to celebrate the hard work and accomplishments of chambers of commerce and the communities they represent. The proclamation of the week issued by Governor Rick Perry states, “…I encourage all Texans to recognize the vital and constructive accomplishments of these organizations, which are crucial to the development and growth of strong communities throughout our great state”.
Although their work is often done “behind the scenes”, chamber of commerce staff and volunteers are routinely involved in many areas of the community that make it great. These may include business development, business recruitment, education and workforce development, community development and beautification among others. Whatever the area, the chamber of commerce is continuously working to help create opportunities for their community to thrive and a place where people want to live, work and play.
