East Texas Coalition - Austin!  
Early Registration Ends December 15!

The Longview Chamber believes in representing the interest of business with government. One of the most effective ways to represent the East Texas region is by bringing the region's civic and business leaders to the State Capitol discussing issues impacting Gregg County and the business community.  Meet directly with elected officials and state agency leaders.  Issues at the State Capitol significantly influence the economy and quality of life of residents and employers in the Gregg County region.
