Letter from Chairman of the Board
I choose Tyler
Why choose Tyler over any other community…
Our community has so many signature events throughout each year making each season special. Whether celebrating our annual Rose Festival in the Fall, or the Azalea Trail in the Spring, visitors are attracted to our city of roses all year long.
Speaking of, I hope you’re ready for the over 100,000 guests who will be touring the 2019 Tyler Azalea Trails. This will be our 60th Annual Azalea & Spring Flower Trail to be held March 22nd – April 7th. Our 10 – mile long Tyler Azalea Trail guides visitors through beautiful neighborhoods full of historic homes and residential gardens blooming with azaleas, dogwoods and tulips.
Our Tyler Chamber of Commerce just wrapped up our biannual Legislative trip to our beautiful Texas Capitol. Over 80 chamber members travelled to Austin to visit with key legislators and agency heads to discuss priority issues facing our community and state. Our members heard from statewide officials including Comptroller Hegar, TxDOT Commissioner Austin, Texas Water Development Board Chairman Peter Lake and many others
It is an honor to serve as your Chairman this year. I am amazed at the number of volunteers who work to make our Chamber an even greater organization. Each of our Chamber Committees, made up of volunteers, are hard at work implementing their work plans to support the businesses of our Community. Whether Medical, Energy, Transportation, …, our Chamber is working every day to better the commerce of our Community.
