Why Be Involved in the Garland Chamber
The Garland Chamber of Commerce has helped business since 1895. For 125 years, this organization has lived up to its mission of helping the local business of Garland be sustainable by being the Connecting Source. The Chamber is here to connect business with other business and resources to maintain its mission. To get more information about resources, please contact the staff here. To know how to connect with other business, well you need to be involved in the Chamber. As John Rattan, 1997 Chairman of the Board, said, “First questions people would ask you is, why should I join the Chamber and what would the Chamber do for me? My answer always was, ‘Well the Chamber wouldn’t do much for you if you don’t get involved in the Chamber, but if you get involved in the Chamber you will grow your business.’” Here are ways to be involved in the Chamber.
