As Texas’s top destination, San Antonio is a culturally-rich and vibrant metropolitan area with a demonstrated ability to thrive in just about any economic climate. The city is a choice location for many of the country and region’s most successful public and private companies. For those who live, work and play here – we know why San Antonio is the envy of the nation. And for more than 40 years, the North San Antonio Chamber of Commerce has supported our citizens and enterprising business community.
Founded in 1974, the North Chamber had the foresight to anticipate San Antonio’s future growth beyond downtown, and we’ve continued to play a major role in shaping and defining solutions for urban and quality of life issues including transportation infrastructure, water quality and supply, energy diversification, economic and workforce development, health and wellness, technology and education.
Today, the North Chamber has earned a reputation as one of the state’s most dynamic and inclusive trade organizations. Resolute in our efforts to advocate for business and education, recognize deserving leaders and provide professional development – we deliver opportunities to make results-oriented business-to-business connections.
Representing more than 1,200 member businesses from every quadrant of the city and encompassing a range of industries from healthcare and biotechnology to energy and telecommunications, the North Chamber is a powerful partnership between small and large businesses. We are a commanding collective voice in advocacy at the local, state and national levels.
No other local chamber does more than we do to honor leaders at every age and career stage. We salute regional legends for their wide-reaching philanthropic endeavors and public service, and recognize area small business leaders in multiple categories from employee relations to business innovation. In partnership with the national ATHENA Foundation, we are the exclusive local host organization for the presentation of awards that credit rising stars, seasoned professionals and model organizations for achievement, community service and leadership cultivation.
Moreover, the North Chamber delivers superlative educational programming on a variety of industry- and content-specific topics to keep our workforce on the cutting edge of specialized skills and best practices. In fact, the Texas Chamber of Commerce Executives named our Leadership Lab training series the “Best New Program of the Year” in 1999, and ever since, more than 70 professionals complete the nine-month program annually.
The North Chamber has left an indelible mark on San Antonio with our culture of entrepreneurialism and cooperation. Through our 501 (c) (3) entity, Lead SA, we provide financial assistance to member small businesses and non-profit organizations seeking career development via North Chamber programs, and we have awarded thousands of scholarship dollars to area colleges and universities to advance higher education.
The North Chamber keeps San Antonio strong and strives to be the chamber of choice for businesses in San Antonio and Bexar County. Join us today, and expect success.
