Membership Benefits

Why join the Greater Port Arthur Chamber of Commerce?

Membership in your Chamber is a key component of any business plan.The Chamber works with local industry, public entites, major purchasers, developers and other businesses to help ensure that local companies are utilized for area projects. Each membership is an investment in education, workforce development, infrastructure improvments, job creation and a positive vision of the future. The Chamber also offers lobbying efforts to assist with issues critical to our area, such as working for approval of street and highway expansion and improvements, ports and waterway developments, air traffic service, and various other types of legislative issues. Our Board of Directors set the strategic direction of the Chamber and oversee the finances of the organization. We represent a broad spectrum of businesses large and small in our community and region. We are always looking for areas to achieve a sound economic enviroment, quality of life and growth of our community.
