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.”

Terry Bryant Honors Nurses Through Giveaway

April 13th, 2021|

The accident & injury law firm of Terry Bryant will be giving away $600 to 10 Houston nurses randomly selected from a list of nominees submitted by members of our community. Though the past year has been challenging for everyone living through the COVID-19 pandemic, few groups have been asked to do more than nurses. Houston's iconic personal injury lawyer Terry Bryant decided it was time to recognize nurses for the invaluable work they're doing. "Nurses are always a cornerstone of both our healthcare system and society as a whole," said Terry Bryant. "This past year has highlighted just how much we depend on nurses and the services they provide, and we wanted to do something [...]

Member Spotlight

Steve Baker

Loan Officer with Movement Mortgage 

I moved to Houston a little over 10 years ago from Indianapolis. My brother and his family moved here first, and with a little coaxing, I decided to join them.  

Houston has been a great experience. I like the people and really enjoy all the sunny days. The Midwest can be really cloudy in the winter; I would trade heat for cold and cloudy any day. I own a home in the Heights and really enjoy being close to everything.  Joining the Chamber was one of the easiest decisions I’ve made!  I have made some good friends, and I have benefitted professionally as well.

I graduated from Indiana University with a degree in Business.  My first job out of college was Co-Manager at Kroger.  It was a great experience managing over 150 people but the hours were long and even though I enjoyed the job, it wasn’t quite the right fit. I decided that I needed something that was more 9 to 5, so I pursued the Mortgage Business.  Well, it’s definitely NOT 9 to 5, but it was well suited for me.

My first Mortgage job was with a small bank in Indianapolis. I would call on Realtors all day long.  That was back before cell phones and laptops, so Realtors spent more time in the office. It was much easier to catch them. I came to enjoy the Mortgage Business.

I joined Movement Mortgage a year and half ago. We put a high value on honoring our clients. It can be a very nervous and unpredictable process purchasing your own home, so I try to keep it as hassle free as possible for my clients.  

We are so lucky to live in a city with so many fine dining choices. One of my favorite past times is eating in nice restaurants and drinking good whiskey with friends.  I also have joined a Thursday night bowling league with other Chamber members.  

I enjoy going to the networking events that the Chamber has to offer.  I currently serve on the HYP Committee and the Ambassador Committee.  This has given me the opportunity to learn about businesses in the Heights.  I have enjoyed meeting the members.

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.
