The result is better educated, more valuable future employees for Nacogdoches businesses. And we enjoy meeting and serving the hundreds of walk-in visitors and newcomers to our facility, providing a friendly front door to the Nacogdoches businesses, attractions and educational institutions.” Chambers throughout Texas are scheduled to participate in this year’s event. “Texas Chamber of Commerce Week is an opportunity for chambers of commerce around Texas to celebrate their accomplishments and promote their roles in positively impacting their local economies through the creation of new jobs and new tax revenue,” said Martha Noell, board chairwoman of Texas Chamber of Commerce Executives (TCCE). “We have Chambers that represent large metropolitan areas as well as those that represent smaller communities, but all of them have a substantial impact on their respective communities. Their collective efforts have helped position Texas as the number one state in which to do business.” Texas Chamber of Commerce Week is coordinated annually through TCCE, which is based in Austin. TCCE is an organization of chamber executives from across the state, working together to improve the business climate in Texas, while developing ways to enhance the quality of life in the communities that they represent.
