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.

Chamber Connections

Here is an unusual new business contact made at a recent ribbon cutting.  Ambassador Jordan Bailey of Sabo Tax & Accounting Services was speaking with Danielle Stewart of Historic Heights Living magazine. Jordan was holding the new member plaque for Daniel Wood Floors, which he was going to present later. Danielle saw the name on the plaque, wrote it down and said that she was looking for a flooring company. Truly a networking contact success and the Chamber at work.

Always good to hear from Jack Van Pelt, our resident jeweler. Jack proudly reports that Byron Rusk and the staff at Master Car Care have always helped him with his car repairs. In return, Byron has made purchases at JVP Jewelry.

Tommie Vaughn Ford, long term member of the Chamber has provided Jack Van Pelt with so much automotive buying and vehicle servicing benefits he can’t even remember them all.

If you have a good example of members doing business with each other and would like to see it on the Chamber website, just email a short note with the details to communications@heightschamber.org.

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.”

Member Spotlight

Alexis Legg

A huge welcome to a new member, Alexis Legg. Alexis is opening a preschool in the Oak Forest area and has immediately acclimated to the Heights environment. She has been getting to know families in need of care as well as supporting small businesses.

Alexis was born in Denver, Colorado, and moved to Dallas at the age of sixteen. Why is this of interest, you might ask? Alexis has never been skiing!

Alexis found her way to Houston in 2007 to attend the U of H (Go Coogs!) where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management and a Master’s in Education.  

Alexis’ passion is education. Her first job was as a ballet instructor for three-year-olds and she credits herself as an early childhood education expert with a passion for curriculum implementation. 

Her family includes husband of ten years, John, and two children, five-year-old Cristopher and three-year-old Caroline.  Rounding out the Legg crew are Bella and Baxter, the Legg’s pets.

Thank you, Alexis, for joining our Heights Chamber family.  We look forward to seeing you at our events!
