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.”

“Adopt a Teacher” Program

October 11th, 2020|

Recognizing that continuing education online, in the classroom, or even both, represents a cause for growing concern among teachers whom must adapt to extraordinary teaching conditions. To aid teachers with much needed support in the midst of pandemic times, the GHACC is establishing an “Adopt a Teacher” program. The online program will pair up teachers, from schools that are allied with the Chamber’s Education Committee, with sponsors who will provide supplies, materials, prayers, and other needs as identified by each teacher. Sponsors will have the opportunity to support an individual teacher or teachers from a selected school; choose to support their child’s school; or provide assistance as an alumnus of a particular school they attended. Sponsors [...]

Evan Camp

Meet Evan Camp from Eureka Heights Brewery.  If you haven’t met Evan yet, he is waiting to be your “Party Boy” friend. Okay his official title is Events Manager, but Party Boy is just so much more fun!

Evan was born in Oklahoma City but grew up in Humble and Houston.  He attended Humble High School then Lone Star College.

He told us that his goal is to make at least one person happy every day. Evan absolutely achieves this through his warm smile and positive attitude. He’s is a regular fixture at our popular noontime networking events. Paige Cassel, Committee Chair, said that “Evan has been a great addition to our committee, and we can’t imagine our committee without him.”

One of the reasons Evan enjoys the Heights Chamber of Commerce is that he has always been a huge advocate for supporting local businesses. Especially now, with the pandemic, he says, ”we need to stick together!”

Evan enjoys casual bike rides, blogs, Reddit, podcasts, and long walks on the beach with his beautiful new wife of one month, Erica.  Evan is also a self-proclaimed, part-time foodie.

Thank you for your membership Evan. You are a true asset to our Chamber!

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.”
