About the Chamber
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.”
About the GHACC
In 1988, several community leaders, including Norman Adams, Harold and Milton Wiesenthal, Jack Fields, and George Polk, Jr. saw a need for a forum to promote business in near-northwest Houston, and so the Greater Heights Area Chamber of Commerce was born.
Today the Chamber serves hundreds of companies from the Greater Heights Area and well beyond. We empower members to grow by providing networking opportunities, referrals, community exposure and business education. Through monthly breakfast presentations, luncheons, evening mixers, and other community events, the Chamber works to develop local commerce. The networking opportunities are boundless. Our Chamber website offers advertising opportunities to build your awareness and promote your business. The annual Membership Directory offers advertising space and serves as a business directory of our members.
We’re also very invested in the success of our community, working closely with local school, civic and charitable organizations. We have awarded nearly $400,000 in scholarships to deserving high school area students.
We encourage you to discover all the benefits of membership. And feel free to contact us for more details on joining our Chamber. For your convenience, you may also join the Heights Chamber online by completing your online application.
