The Grand Prairie Chamber of Commerce is a member-owned, non-profit (501c6) organization of business people who are investing their resources in community development programs – working together to achieve our mission, to “promote, strengthen and expand the business community” of Grand Prairie.
The Chamber represents a unique partnership with business, civic and educational leaders in Grand Prairie. The goal of this partnership is to build a community where businesses flourish, education is continually improving and the community enjoys a safe and friendly environment. The Grand Prairie Chamber of Commerce regularly partners with the city and school district.
We accomplish our goals by serving our members, as our members serve the community.
The Chamber provides multiple opportunities to enhance our member’s professional and personal growth, and expand business opportunities and build their businesses. Networking opportunities, featuring engaging speakers on useful topics, provided at various times during the month, offer the chance for our members to form communities of interest. As you create this network of professionals, you will gain insight to the industries and consumers who will utilize your business.
The more you engage in events, the more you benefit from your membership.
The Chamber encourages members to “shop our membership first”, so when you join the Chamber, you will be provided a list of hundreds of potential customers found in our membership directory. As you build relationships with other members, and they get to know, like and trust you, that relationship can result in business referrals. That is chamber membership at it’s best!
Activities of the Chamber all serve to meet our mission ”to promote, strengthen, and expand the business community”. Why is this so important? The cycle looks something like this: Our community attracts residents and visitors. Residents and visitors spend money with local merchants. Money spent locally increases business and tax revenues. Increased business and tax revenues allow the community to continue to improve services to both our businesses and our residents.
The success of the Chamber is predicated on the dedication and commitment of its members. As a member, you have the opportunity to have a voice in the community, to make a difference in our city and assist in creating a successful education system for future generations.
We look forward to welcoming you as a member of the Grand Prairie Chamber of Commerce; to work with you in growing your business, providing marketing opportunities, current business information, and together, continuously striving to make Grand Prairie the city where the best come to work and live.
