Nominate an outstanding educator


Attention all Chamber members: Membership Directories are being prepared now! Chamber Members, we are going to print with the 2020 Membership Directory. We are going to have it ready for distribution the first part of January, so we need you to do a few things. Go to and click in the directory search. Please check to make sure that we have the correct information for your business. We have been trying to check and recheck it, but we need your help to make sure everything is correct. If your membership investment is past due, payment arrangements need to be made prior to Dec. 30 to be included in the 2020 directory. If you find information that needs to be corrected, please call the Chamber at 903-885-6515. If you are interested in placing an ad in the directory, please contact Lee Ann Peugh at Echo Publishing at 903-885-8663.
