It all fits the chamber’s mission statement ‘create an environment where business can succeed.’”
According to Spruiell, the Nacogdoches County Chamber serves as an important resource for businesses large and small. “Drop by the chamber of commerce this week, visit with the staff and get to know your chamber better,” she said.
Chambers throughout Texas are scheduled to participate in this year’s event. “Texas Chamber of Commerce Week is an opportunity for Chambers of Commerce around Texas to celebrate their accomplishments and promote their roles in positively impacting their local economies through the creation of new jobs and new tax revenue,” said Diane Probst, president/CEO of the Rockport-Fulton Area Chamber of Commerce and board chairwoman of Texas Chamber of Commerce Executives (TCCE). “We have Chambers that represent large metropolitan areas as well as those that represent smaller communities, but all of them have a substantial impact on their respective communities. Their collective efforts have helped position Texas as the number one state in which to do business.”
Texas Chamber of Commerce Week is coordinated annually through TCCE, which is based in Austin. TCCE is an organization of chamber executives from across the state, working together to improve the business climate in Texas, while developing ways to enhance the quality of life in the communities that they represent.
