Facilities Task Force
This group is working to raise funds to develop the Chamber building into multi-use, multi-tenant and a welcome center for all new businesses and residents.
The Chamber’s website is renewed with a brand-new look each year and updated almost daily. It includes an interactive community calendar, unique membership listings with member products and services description, and the ability for members to advertise with links to their own sites. Staff post Hot News items, events and documents that are available to members and the general public. Members can enhance their listings with links and images. Sponsorship opportunities are also available to help promote local business and fund Chamber operations.
The Chamber works with partner members to publish an Official Guide & Membership Directory and the Official City and County Street Map. Chamber publications are vital resources to the hundreds of families and retirees moving to our community each year, new and relocating businesses, existing Chamber members, and thousands of area visitors and newcomers - including incoming SFA students and their parents. These publications also help fund Chamber operations.
Directories and maps are delivered throughout Nacogdoches County and beyond, and digital distribution broadcasts advertising messages on this website all year round.
“These publications are great resources for so many people — professionals, students, newcomers, visitors, retirees and Chamber members alike! Your ad promotes your business and your community while supporting the Chamber’s events and programs.” Scarlett Sloane, Past-Chair of the Board of Directors, Parkway Financial
