Welcome to the Greater Heights Area Chamber of Commerce.

The Greater Heights Area Chamber of Commerce (GHACC) is a member-focused organization through which members can effectively develop their business and themselves. Since its founding in 1988, the hallmark of the Chamber has, and continues to be: “People do business with people they know, like, and trust.” Relationships developed in the Chamber become part of one’s business infrastructure. New friends can be found in the Chamber and some of those friendships will last a lifetime. Members can learn how to grow their markets, supply their business, mentor associates or even find a special mentor. GHACC works diligently to provide benefit to all members, be they new, or long-term.

This growing Chamber provides a forum into which its members’ businesses can fit together in an atmosphere of mutual benefit. Active participation provides multiple benefits including access to the entrepreneurs and management of business and organizations with differing viewpoints and methods that work. An abundance of activities provide networking occasions to create new business opportunities, obtain business referrals, join committees, have fun and enjoy a camaraderie unique to Heights Chamber members.

Just as the “Heights” is known for its uniqueness and historical Houston significance, the GHACC blends businesses, promotes “Buy Local First,” and has often been described as a “not so well kept secret for successfully serving its members.”

Member Spotlight

Jessica Carlos

“I was born and raised in Houston, TX and lived a majority of my life in the Heights.  I have always known I was going to run my own business one way or another.  One of my funniest childhood memories was charging my friends to visit my “movie theatre” where I showed The Muppet Movie in my home on VHS.  Needless to say, my mother made me give refunds to everyone and never let me live that one down.

My best friend’s parents were both artists and encouraged us to always create.  In 1986 Jean-Michel Jarre came to town and presented his Rendez-vous concert for the city.  My best friend and I came up with what we called “Laser Masks” to wear during his show. Her parents had an artist booth during the festival prior to the concert where they let us set up our very own shop.  We made a whopping $50 each and for two 10 year old’s in 1986 that was quite the bankroll.  We were both hooked!  We held many lemonade stands and several garage sales before her family moved out of state.

Fast forward many many years, I was still selling my (now crochet) creations in an artist booth around town.  On my 42nd birthday, I decided it was time to set up a more permanent shop for my art.  The Whimsy Artisan Boutique was born.  I brought along 11 other artists and makers for the ride.  Since then we have grown to over 150!  We will be celebrating our three year anniversary this March and look forward to many more years.

On a more personal note, I am the wife to my high school sweetheart and we have a 13 year old son.  We are a family of artists.  My husband is a musician and son is an avid gamer / ballet dancer who has recently begun his musical journey.  We have two dogs (a Chihuahua and a Jack Russell Terrier) who also love to sing.”

Testimonials

Here’s why being on a Chamber Committee expands my business connections.

“Joining other Chamber members on a committee establishes recognition of me for my business and service capabilities. With an opportunity to provide new ideas or input in the planning and staging of Chamber events, I have the occasion to meet and interact with fellow members in different fields. Working together provides an arena for me to expand my skills in areas where I may not have been involved before. Equally important is learning how vital collaboration can be to my future success. The Chamber offers a variety of committees, so there are many looking to grow and add new talent.”

Here’s why I put Noontime Networking on my Calendar Every Time.

“I know the Chamber monthly Breakfast Connection is a good networking opportunity but, as a working mom, early mornings can be hectic for me. The bi-monthly Noontime Networking sessions fit my schedule perfectly. I can have lunch, learn about a member’s business, and effectively network all in the course of time I would normally spend just going to lunch. Thanks to the Chamber for serving my needs.”

Here’s why I Sponsor a Chamber Event!

“One of the benefits of being a part of the Heights Chamber is the opportunity to promote and highlight my business in a cost-effective way to fellow members. I have found that sponsoring an event brings with it an additional emphasis on my business and recognition of me and my services. I know that members do business with fellow members and getting them to know me and my capabilities better, leads to future business and referrals.”
