Every year, for a week in October, an awareness campaign is conducted to highlight the achievements and role of local chambers of commerce. This year, Texas Governor Greg Abbott proclaimed that Texas Chamber of Commerce Week would be Monday, October 19 through Friday, October 23. Read the full proclamation below.
“Texas has become an economic power thanks to the ingenuity and hard work of its residents, who are entrepreneurs and innovators seeking to carve out better lives for themselves, their families, and their communities. In many cases, Texans’ dreams become reality due to the help of local chambers of commerce.
Local chambers of commerce distinguish themselves through their promotion of local communities, projects, and small businesses. By promoting local businesses, chambers of commerce help foster job creation, improve education, and develop local infrastructure. These organizations have laid the foundation of economic success and prosperity for many communities, and their work continues to build a better future for all Texans.
Every year, for a week in October, an awareness campaign is conducted to highlight the achievements and role of local chambers of commerce. I encourage all Texans to join me in recognizing and commending these hardworking individuals for their many contributions to the Lone Star State.
Therefore, I, Greg Abbott, Governor of Texas, do hereby proclaim October 19-23, 2020, to be, Chamber of Commerce Week.”
The Clear Lake Area Chamber of Commerce was able to celebrate Texas Chamber of Commerce Week with a surprise visit from Senator Larry Taylor at our Board of Directors meeting as he presented this proclamation to our Chairman of the Board and Leadership team.
