Chamber Welcome

Welcome to Beaumont!

It doesn’t matter if you are experiencing our city as a visitor, a new member of the community or a someone that has been here all your life, one thing that is immediately evident is the friendly people that you encounter throughout your day. As a recent addition to the city myself, I see it every day – at the grocery store, at restaurants throughout the city and amongst our over 1,000 members’ businesses – people genuinely care. When they ask, “How are you doing?”, they are interested in your answer.

From the Chamber’s point of view, Beaumont is a great place to do business. Our city’s stance toward business helps in recruiting new and retaining existing companies. The Port of Beaumont serves as a shining star in our economy and facilitates the movement of a plethora of things – both in and out of the region. The petrochemical industry is huge here, but most importantly those major organizations are fantastic corporate citizens.

We can tackle one of the most important things to business today – workforce – with the combination of the Beaumont Independent School District, Lamar Institute of Technology and Lamar University. The fact they collaborate on certain projects means that we can drive a great workforce today and into the future.

Putting all that together, Beaumont is a great place to visit, a great place to live and a great place to do business.

If you are in the neighborhood, please take the time and stop by our offices and let us welcome you in person. If you just want some information on our community, visit our website

Have a great day!
