The Chamber's Work, Program Areas
The Chamber has been serving businesses in San Antonio since 1894. Our goal is to continuously improve the business climate and build opportunities for growth for San Antonio and our region. We accomplish this through programs focused on advocacy, economic development, events and direct services to our members.
The Chamber's member services are structured in six program areas:
Public Affairs - works with our members and elected officials at the local, county, state and federal levels to develop pro-business advocacy positions.
Economic Development - helps to develop economic growth in our key industries: health care, manufacturing, information technology, financial services, military, aerospace, hospitality/tourism and many more.
Education and Workforce Development - helps to get employers and schools and universities to collaborate to ensure that education in San Antonio is preparing the best and brightest for America's workforce for today and tomorrow. We also focus on getting business leaders involved in our local schools by setting up opportunities to mentor, and get them involved in education advocacy with our Education and Workforce Council.
Image and Communications - informs all members of Chamber events and resources. The program area manages web site content, public/media relations, photography and corporate identity.
Membership Development - engages all members in making the most of their Chamber membership, including ribbon cuttings, grand openings, networking opportunities, travel opportunities and enlisting members in our councils and committees.
Public Affairs - works with our members and elected officials at the local, county, state and federal levels to develop pro-business advocacy positions. Our advocacy groups also
