Get Involved

Promote your Company. Grow your Business.

Joining the Chamber is the first step to developing more revenue and profits for your business. Your next step is getting involved through a committee. The Heights Chamber has committees that meet regularly as well as seasonally.

Ambassadors Committee

Focuses on welcoming and involving new members into the Chamber. The Ambassadors are the “tour guides” that induct new members, schedule and attend their ribbon-cuttings, point out opportunities, introduce them to our many programs and to other members.

The Ambassadors Committee meets the first Wednesday of each month from 11:30 -12:30 pm at different locations.

For more information, please email the committee chair, Natalie Coyle.

Education Committee

Assists local schools and serves as a liaison with local businesses. It’s also in charge of managing the fundraising for scholarships provided area students. Member sponsors help the Chamber award scholarships each year to deserving area high school students. Chamber members take time to donate much-needed school supplies to an area school where deserving students have a need. The Committee also reviews all scholarship applications and determines the winners each year through a standard process.

For more information, please email the committee chair, Cindy Reibenstein.

Heights Young Professionals (HYP)

Recognizing the need for an organization dedicated to young professionals, the Chamber organized and introduced the Heights Young Professional organization. This is a new forum for the mid-twenties to late thirties age group who are interested in building their professional skills and networking in a business and social environment.

For more information, please email the committee chair, Nicole Pepper.

Noontime Networking

For new members and prospective members, the Chamber conducts a lunch time networking session every other month. Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of the month from 11:30 – 1:00 p.m. at Harold’s in the Heights located at 350 West 19th.

This event proves popular for those unable to attend the monthly Breakfast Connection. For more information, please email the committee chair, John Frels.

Ladies in Action Committee

The Ladies in Action Committee organizes our Women in Business networking opportunity that is held the third Wednesday of every month.

Membership Engagement Committee

Members of the membership committee reach out to current members, members up for renewal, and promote on-going member involvement and participation.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee

The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee of the Greater Heights Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to ensuring that our organization recognizes and embraces the diversity that is one of Houston’s many strengths. Historically,  the diversity of the United States has made our economy the most vibrant and dynamic in history. In the words of the US Chamber of Commerce, “When businesses recognize and embrace different perspectives, they are better able to create value, serve customers, support employees, and solve problems. By providing opportunities for everyone, businesses help lift communities and strengthen the health, prosperity, and competitiveness of our nation and our society.
