From the President
This past year the board, volunteers, and staff of the Lewisville Area Chamber spent countless hours completing the Accreditation process. Our task: demonstrate competency in 9 core areas ranging from finance to facilities. The result of our hard work is evidenced by this impressive rating. We should all be extraordinarily proud of this milestone achievement. It was a true team effort.

A special thanks to Eyad Salloum of Weichert Realtors Classic for serving as the Accreditation Chair. I also must thank Reuben Brown of Commercial Bank of Texas, Chuck Clay of Northstar Bank of Texas, Dan Irvin of National American University, Art Locke of Focal Point Business Coaching, Carol Longacre of Longacre Construction, Ann Pape of Communities in Schools of North Texas, Mark Payne of Denco Area 9-1-1 District, Kellie Stokes of Stokes Law Firm and Freedom Title, Bobby Wall of Sage Payroll, and Jeff Whittaker of R. Jeffrey Whittaker, CPA for your work. The staff played an integral part in making sure items were completed and submitted on time.

Last, I think each member for your support and belief in the work that we do. Our Accreditation is a direct reflection of your engagement in the programs and events of the Lewisville Area Chamber of Commerce.
