On October 21, 2020, the Weslaco Chamber celebrated its 85th year of existence during Texas Chamber of Commerce week!
The official charter for the Weslaco Chamber was filed in the Office of the Secretary of State on this date in 1935, as stated on the charter, “organizing a business of Chamber of Commerce, to acquire, preserve and disseminate valuable information and generally promote the interest of trade and increase the facilities of commercial transactions in the City of Weslaco and vicinity.”
The chamber has remained true to its mission of supporting the Mid-Valley business community as our mission states, “Together, with our partners, we provide leadership to advance a prosperous economy that enhances the quality of life in our community.”
“The Weslaco Chamber of Commerce offers the business community a platform for connectivity to one another. The greatness of any community is measured by the involvement of its members. The chamber has placed community involvement as the number one goal” shared Weslaco Board Chair, Corina Rodriguez, CEO for Weslaco Regional Rehabilitation Hospital. “The Weslaco Chamber measures its success only when it accomplishes the task of lifting its businesses.”
