ROCKWALL, TX (Oct. 17, 2022) Governor Greg Abbott has officially proclaimed October 17 through October 21, 2022, as “Chamber of Commerce Week” in Texas. Signing an official resolution, Governor Abbott celebrated the more than 600 local chambers of commerce in Texas who “provide a critical link in the communities they serve by fostering a vibrant business environment, promoting local projects, and paving the way for small businesses to thrive.”
During this week, all citizens of Rockwall County should pause and reflect on the many contributions made to our community through the efforts of the local Chamber of Commerce. As stated by Governor Abbott, “their work leads to stronger people, better communities, and a prosperous state we are proud to call home. The Chamber of Commerce improves your community by creating jobs, implementing beautification programs, improving education, campaigning for improved streets and highways, and stimulating industrial, commercial, and agricultural growth.”
