WHAT IS THE CHAMBER AND HOW DOES IT FUNCTION?
Your Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary partnership of business and professional people working together to build a healthy economy and improve the quality of life in your community.
As your Chamber works to accomplish these goals, it wears many hats: economic developer and planner; tourist center informant; business spokesperson; business counselor and advisor; and public relations practitioner.
Simply stated, the Chamber works to make your community a better place for everyone to live, work and play.
The Chamber of Commerce functions through active committees of the organization. Money, planning, inspiration and guidance are useless unless the members work vigorously on the committee of their choice.
Every member has a voice in determining the policies and projects. Every member is needed to work on active committees to get the job done.

The Texas City-La Marque Chamber of Commerce was formed in January of 1969 with the purpose of promoting civic, economic, industrial, agricultural, educational and social welfare for the people of La Marque and Texas City.
The merger between the Texas City Chamber of Commerce and the La Marque Chamber of Commerce came after several months of studies which showed the practicality of the formation of one central Chamber of Commerce in order to better serve the interests of both cities and the Metropolitan area. The study was made on the premise that one large organization can undertake and carry out a more complete and effective program for our changing structure.
The Texas City-La Marque Chamber of Commerce currently has a membership of approximately 800 dedicated, community-spirited individuals, businesses, and industries who have truly helped make this a winning Chamber.
