Welcome to the Central Fort Bend Chamber!
For the first time in four years, things seem back to normal...maybe a new normal, but normal none the less. For the chamber staff, board and volunteers, we are grateful for our members and community as a whole. As we celebrate 114 years in 2024, we have a lot to celebrate. Recently, we renewed our mission: to cultivate community connections, advocate for business and facilitate growth, which is built around our Core Values: Commitment, Leadership, Integrity, Service and Passion. We live by our Mission and our Core Values each and every day and continue to grow our Chamber through programs and events that will benefit our members.
In March 2023, the Central Fort Bend Chamber earned a 5-Star Accreditation rating from the US Chamber of Commerce. With approximately 7,000 chambers in the United States, Accreditation with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is a prestigious honor that distinguishes the high quality, expertise, and strong leadership displayed by Accredited state and local chambers of commerce. There are only 146 Chambers of Commerce in the United States and 30 in Texas that have achieved 5-Star Accreditation. We could not have done this without our amazing and dedicated Board of Directors, Members and Volunteers.
Our community is moving into a rapid growth phase over the next 10-15 years. Over 55% of of west Fort Bend County acreage is undeveloped, which sends an open invitation to businesses far and wide to make west Fort Bend County their home. With the expected growth, the Central Fort Bend Chamber is working on many initiatives and partnerships to build programs and events that will not only add value to our community, they will add value to our chamber…YOUR CHAMBER. Connecting to our diverse and growing community and providing an opportunity for our businesses to network with and learn from others is the key to our success.
BIG things are in store in 2024 for the Chamber, our members and the central Fort Bend community. As always, we hope to remain the most valuable resource for you and your business. We look forward to working and growing beside you!
