Business Solution Focused


Since 2011, our chamber of commerce has been transitioning from a business network to an all-encompassing resource for businesses. After the destruction of Hurricane Harvey, Lake Houston leaders saw a need for the Chamber and Economic Development Partnership to merge for the benefit of all area businesses. Between the coordination of internal and external resources with businesses, agencies, and organizations, the Partnership played a large part in rebuilding the Lake Houston area. Today, the Partnership is thriving at an exponential rate and currently serves close to 1,000 members. We’re focused on continuing to be the advocate for business and economic development in Lake Houston and surrounding areas.

serving businesses SINCE 1923

While the goals of the original Chamber and the LHEDP have remained the same in regard to business advocacy and economic growth, the Partnership structure has changed significantly in recent years. We are committed to being more than a chamber of commerce by providing services that add value for both stakeholders and growing business.
