As the voice of business, the Plano Chamber’s fundamental purpose is to create and sustain a competitive advantage for businesses in the City of Plano and the North Texas region. It is our goal to develop and promote public policy positions and foster a proactive agenda to protect the interest of business and advance the quality of life of the community.
We work with member companies, all levels and offices of government, and numerous partner organizations to address issues such as business climate, workforce development, infrastructure, and urban expansion.
Listening to the concerns of our membership is the Plano Chamber’s top priority. Our Public Policy Committee works tirelessly to identify the issues of highest priority to our business community and to act on their behalf. Additionally, Plano Chamber advocacy programs and events provide unique opportunities to connect with local, state, and national elected officials.
