Mission: The mission of the Grapevine Chamber of Commerce is to promote business that adds value to our community.

How is Your 2018 So Far? How is your 2018 so far? We have hit the ground running at the Chamber! The Grapevine Chamber Staff and Board have already been hard at work setting goals and taking steps to implement new programs, policies and systems. If you attended our January luncheon, you heard about our new business spotlight initiative. As part of our raffle drawings each month, we will select one lucky business who will receive free advertising in the following month’s newsletter and luncheon slide show. Everyone who attends the luncheon has an opportunity to win! In January, our winner was Will Downs of Fidelity Investments.

Vision: The vision of the Grapevine Chamber is a progressive business organization that brings relevant and essential opportunities for our investors and community to grow and prosper.

Values: Excellence Innovation Integrity & Community


Other programs that you will be hearing more about in the coming months include new committee meetings for our hotels and attractions businesses as well as a meeting of Faith for our Church business members. You will also be seeing some updates and new features on our website. We are excited about this new year, and we hope that you feel your investment in the Chamber is valuable! As always, we welcome your feedback and suggestions and look forward to seeing you this month at our many great programs and events! Thank you for your investment in the Grapevine Chamber!
