As the President & CEO of the Amarillo Chamber of Commerce, I encourage you to take a look around on our website and our online directory when you are looking to do business in Amarillo. These can be valuable resources for you and your business. They provide information about Chamber members and their lines of service and products, as well as information about the community in which we live. Amarillo businesses produce the finest quality services and products for their customers and the Amarillo Chamber of Commerce is honored to serve as a representative of this ever-aggressive business community; one which strives for a stronger economy.
The Chamber staff, its Board of Directors, Executive Committee and hundreds of volunteers are the city’s leading advocates for a vibrant business climate. The Chamber continuously strives to develop goals and objectives based on member input; utilizing these ideas to conduct and host dozens of events, which promote economic growth and an attractive quality of life. Our various councils and committees are extremely active in developing programs to help our member businesses become more successful, and we take pride in promoting business, education, tourism and the cultural arts.
Now more than ever, we ask you to look at who is in your circle. Are you supporting those businesses that support our community? As you look through our Chamber Directory, we encourage you shop local and do business with our Chamber members. Not only do they believe in the Chamber’s goals, they also support the business community through their investments and sponsorships. Doing business with other Chamber members is the best way to thank them for their continued investment and ensure that the companies of the future continue to have this level of support. Shopping local helps increase our sales tax revenue in the city and provides key community services and helps keep our overall property taxes down.
We recognize that 2020 and 2021 were challenging times for our businesses, our city, and our country, but we are confident in the strength and resilience of Amarillo businesses and its people. We have big things planned in the coming year and are thankful for the trust and support of our members to help us achieve those goals. It takes all of us working together to carry out this common goal...to make Amarillo the best possible place to live, learn, work and play!
