Governor Greg Abbott has officially proclaimed October 17 through October 21, 2022 as “Chamber of Commerce Week” in Texas. Signing an official resolution, Governor Abbott celebrated the more than 600 local chambers of commerce in Texas that “provide a critical link in the communities they serve by fostering a vibrant business environment, promoting local projects, and paving the way for small businesses to thrive.”
During this week, all citizens of North Texas should pause and reflect on the many contributions made to our community through the efforts of the local Chamber of Commerce. As stated by Governor Abbott, “their work leads to stronger people, better communities, and a prosperous state we are proud to call home. The Chamber of Commerce improves your community by creating jobs, implementing beautification programs, improving education, campaigning for improved streets and highways, and stimulating industrial, commercial, and agricultural growth.”
This year alone, Chambers of Commerce in Texas have hosted local and regional events, roundtables, and economic development updates. They have also assisted numerous businesses considering locating to their communities, dealt with countless workforce-related issues, and held business expos, luncheons, summits, and more to promote small businesses.
Members of the Frisco Chamber of Commerce and surrounding communities, please take a moment to celebrate and thank your Chamber’s staff and volunteers for their work and dedication.
