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

Rachel Moskowitz Goldstein

Stylist with Cabi

Hello Greater heights Area Chamber!  I am Rachel Moskowitz Goldstein, and I was born and raised in Buffalo, New York.  I attended Erie Community College after high school and then moved to Houston in May of 1980 with my parents, sister & brother.  My parents wanted to move for warmer weather and Dad got a job with Kroger, so they moved us to Houston.

My first job was working at SYM’s, “where the educated shopper shops”  I have always loved shopping and clothes.   Not surprised I turned to Cabi years later as my career.

When I started my Cabi business I realized I had to start networking to get to know more people and create relationships.  I joined BNI Heights of Professionalism and from there started going to chamber events.

I learned very early on that going to chamber events was like getting together with family.  I was asked to become an Ambassador and love welcoming the new members and getting them acquainted with all things chamber related.  I have made so many great relationships and  I’ve even gotten to go on numerous girl trips!

My hobbies include travel, photography and numerous types of art projects.  I also love to read, mysteries are my favorite!

I have been married for 35 years in January to Jay and we have two boys, Jake & Lewis.  Jake is engaged to Aaren Benson and will be getting married in June, 2022.  Lewis got married in 2019 to Emily Klein, a harpist.  Emily is the principle harpist at Opera in the Heights and performs weddings, churches, and events.  Feel free to look her up at www.emilykleinharp.com  We are so proud of her.

Jake and Lewis work with their father in the ship supply business which Jay has worked at for over 40 years

Cabi is a women’s clothing company out of California.  I bring a catalog of clothes, accessories, jewelry to women and their girl friends virtually or in person.  Cabi is classic and timeless so I help women build a beautiful wardrobe from season to season and our colors continue from season to season also.

Cabi has an amazing foundation, The Heart of Cabi, we supply clothes to women overcoming vulnerable life circumstances in our local communities.  When making a purchase you can round your change up to the nearest dollar or pound and contribute to the education of Rwanda children and help give them brighter futures, breaking the cycle of poverty.  When a stylist launches her business, Cabi will fund a small business loan in their name for a woman (their sister Entrepeneur)  in a developing country to build her own business.

This December, BOGO (Buy One Give One) when women make a purchase, Cabi donates to one of these three causes:  1.  Rebuilding after a domestic natural disaster; 2) Overcoming poverty in a developing country; or 3) Recovering from a vulnerable life circumstance (transitioning out of homelessness, rescued from human trafficking, or going through cancer treatment, and overcoming hurdles to return to the workforce.

My website is rachelgoldstein.cabionline.com  I would love to host you and your girlfriends virtually or in person.  Want to learn more about Cabi, I am always looking for women who want to do what I do!  I would love to talk to you.  my email is moskrg47@gmail.com

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 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.”
