Where would your business be without a strong Chamber of Commerce?
Economic Development, simply put, means more dollars and more great paying jobs in a community. The Houston Northwest Chamber of Commerce works daily to promote our community as a great place to work and do business. It is the only organization to do so — there is no TIRZ, Management District or other economic development funding mechanism in place to support economic development activities to attract, retain or help grow business in our community.
Why is Economic Development important?
Because your business needs other businesses or customers with disposable incomes to support it. The Chamber works to ensure our community has both. And we need your support to make it happen. By becoming a sustaining member of the Houston Northwest Chamber of Commerce you support those activities that attract and retain major employers and small businesses alike to our community. Only your Membership support will ensure those activities will continue so your community is strong enough to support your business.
