Chamber of Commerce
Devoted to propelling the growth and sustainability of both San Angelo and the Concho Valley, the San Angelo Chamber of Commerce assumes a paramount role. The collaborative efforts of the Chamber, its esteemed Board of Directors, and its dedicated members stand as integral pillars driving progress. A legacy dating back to 1916 establishes the Chamber as a resounding voice for the business community, orchestrating forums that unite leaders and influencers to champion community welfare, employment, commerce, and education. Functioning as a 501(c)6 nonprofit entity, we tirelessly contribute to fortifying the local economy, advocating staunchly for our members, and spearheading the elevation of community standards. Our unwavering focus lies in endowing our members with exceptional value, empowering them to cultivate their enterprises in tandem with nurturing the shared growth of our vibrant community.
At the core of the Chamber’s vigor stands an adept Board of Directors comprising 18 members, fortified by an enthusiastic contingent of volunteers. Complementing this forceful alliance is a professional team of 12 full-time employees and 1 part-time staff. We are headquartered within the scenic environs of the San Angelo Visitor Center, nestled at 418 West Avenue B, gracing the landscape between the junction of Abe and Koenigheim streets (Business US Highways 277/87) along the picturesque banks of the Concho River. This strategic location not only embodies our commitment to accessibility but also reflects our dedication to fostering an environment where commerce, culture, and nature harmoniously converge.
