From the President

This past week I had the honor of representing the hundreds of members of the Lewisville Area Chamber of Commerce in Montreal, Canada at the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives conference. During my presentation I shared examples of the courageous leadership shown by our board of directors, members and staff over the last few years.

 

Our chamber continues to seek ways to revise and refresh our work in order to remain relevant to the members and communities we serve. If you have not completed your membership satisfaction survey, please take a few minutes to let us know how we are doing.
