Mesquite’s Chamber of Commerce is active, growing and working with business leaders for an even better Mesquite. Together, this unsurpassed team of mostly volunteers stands as the backbone of Mesquite’s community leadership and business development.
The Mesquite Chamber is a nonprofit partnership of business and professional individuals collaborating to improve the community’s quality of life and to assist in building a vibrant, growing economy. Ambassadors of the Chamber are known as Mustangers. These volunteers devote their time to improving business relationships and are primarily responsible for ribbon cuttings, hosting, organizing and promoting special Chamber events.
The Chamber is run by its Members who elect a Board of Directors. The Board sets goals and determines policies. The Board Chairman is the Chief Volunteer Officer (CVO) and presides over all the Board and Membership meetings. The daily operations of the Chamber are managed by paid, professional staff.
