Letter from Chairman of the Board
I choose Tyler
Why choose Tyler over any other community…
Top 4 in the State may not sound like much in any other state. But in Texas, it’s a big deal! Ladies and gentlemen, our Tyler Area Chamber of Commerce is in the Top 4 of largest Chambers of Commerce in the great State of Texas! Compare us to any major metropolitan community whether it be Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, El Paso… anywhere across our great State and you will find that our Tyler Area Chamber of Commerce is ranked one of the largest.
Why is our Chamber of Commerce so successful? It may be because it serves as a powerful voice for area businesses. No matter the size of your company, our Chamber educates our community to the challenges facing businesses today. Through a variety of Chamber Committees such as Transportation, Energy, Government, Health & Education and many more, our Chamber is actively engaged in every facet of our Community.
It was our Tyler Area Chamber of Commerce that incubated many successful organizations serving our Community such as the Business & Education Council (BEC). This Council serves as a partner to our local Independent School Districts in helping relate the demands of today’s businesses to the next generation of leaders.
Speaking of the BEC, August 1st will be the School is Cool project. I hope you will get involved by donating or contributing your time as this event provides school supplies to children who might otherwise go without.
As we turn to the second half of Summer, take advantage of meeting new business owners at one of the many Chamber Ribbon Cutting events. It’s always exciting to join with other Chamber members to celebrate and welcome a new business to our Community.
Mark your calendar, our Annual Meeting is coming up on October 8. This is always a huge event and I guarantee you will enjoy the camaraderie with fellow business representatives, owners and employers.
