“One of the best business decisions I made was joining The Woodlands Area Chamber in 1999 with Edward Jones. I credit my successful financial services career to my involvement in the Chamber. I was honored to serve as the chairman of the board in 2016 which was a culmination of years of volunteering and hard work. Without the Chamber, I would have never been able to achieve the level of success I have experienced both professionally and personally.”

“When I took my first job in The Woodlands, the Chamber was my main outlet for starting a network in my new business community. I quickly realized that not only were there numerous networking opportunities offered through the Chamber, but there were also even more people involved with the Chamber who were eager to help me figure out my place here. Over time, many of these people became personal friends, as well as business colleagues, and a lot of those connections would not have happened without the Chamber.”

“Lone Star College has been a member of the chamber for many years. We stay engaged at the board level and with the higher membership level because of the benefits we receive from doing so. The numerous Chamber members, large groups who attend each of the Chamber events and the multiple ways they market both in print and digitally promote the image of Lone Star College and the services we provide in ways we could not do otherwise.”

“I joined the Chamber in 2009 and have not only developed strong relationships but have also been awarded opportunities to serve and lead on many teams with this amazing organization. I’ve been blessed to have served under such influential mentors within our community and the leadership skills that I’ve developed have had a direct impact on my current role with Marsh & McLennan Agency. Relationships take time to develop, and I am so fortunate that the majority of my new business opportunities today, are a direct result of the relationships that were built and the referrals that come through The Woodlands Area Chamber.”
