Welcome to Midland Texas! Whether you are new to town, a “lifer” or somewhere in between, it can be easy to overlook the treasures and assets that exist just beyond your doorstep. That might ring true for our community even more than most. The cover of this year’s guide is a perfect example. Taken at Sibley Nature Center by local photographer Ken Zoller, the image captures the excitement of our annual Star-Spangled Salute – while highlighting the hidden beauty that permeates Midland.
At the Midland Chamber of Commerce, we are proud to be the stewards of community promotion and strive to unite and advocate for local businesses – educating policy makers regarding local business interests to advance the region’s economic health. With a rich legacy of leadership, the Chamber continues to build a greater Midland – for Midlanders.
Our citizens are known for being warm, courteous and driven. Midland presents the perfect opportunity for those who dream big and are willing to work to make things happen! Speaking of making big dreams a reality – in the upcoming year, we are excited to see the opening of a new Midland Convention Center and final construction of the new Centennial Park as our community pulls together to continue to revitalize downtown Midland.
Since its inception in 1924, the Midland Chamber has been recognized and respected as a leader in our community. We are an energetic chamber that provides increased opportunity and value each year to encourage each member’s individual growth. Further, we serve as the convener, bringing together key leaders to address and solve the critical issues of our town. We invite you to join us and be a part of this amazing growth, and add to the heart of the action.
If you are not already a member of the Chamber, we invite you to join us by visiting our website at www.midland.biz. A special thank you to our existing members!
