Letter From the President
Lots of exciting events at the chamber and lots of ways to network and get involved in the community.

Our first ever quarterly "FOCUS ON" breakfast is this Thursday, November 8, at Lewisville City Hall. These breakfasts will be quarterly on the months we have no partnership luncheon. This first one is sponsored by Texas New Mexico Power and features special guest State Representative Ron Simmons as we FOCUS ON: State Government. There is NO CHARGE to attend, but if you will RSVP online here, we can plan for breakfast. Hope to see you there!

Don't miss a thing as we wrap up a busy 2018! Follow us on Facebook and read through these Monday Memos for the latest information on everything going on at your Lewisville Area Chamber .
