New Health Plan Co-op Formed The year is winding down, but our Chamber is still as busy as ever! We recently announced the formation of the North Texas Employer Health Plan Cooperative, with the founding member being our Grapevine Chamber of Commerce! This exciting coop will allow members of our Chamber as well as other Chambers in the region who are member of the co-op, to offer health insurance to their employees so long as they are businesses of 2-50 employees. All insurance brokers who sell United Health Care insurance and are Chamber members can sell this plan, and we believe that the savings to employers and employees will be of value! We will have more details about this opportunity available at the Chamber office and are happy to answer any questions that you may have. Additionally, our Chamber Board is still working toward the possible building remodel and expansion project that we mentioned a few months ago. We plan to have a full report on that by the end of the year so we can carry this project on in 2019. Stay tuned for those details! Wishing you and your families a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday, and we look forward to seeing you soon. Theresa Mason, MIG Realty 2018 Grapevine Chamber Chair

Show Them NOT Store Them

Here’s a concept, what if you could print those pic’s you have on your phone onto some type of photo paper and frame them. Now what if you could get different sizes of that pic, let’s say a couple of 8 x 10’s maybe some 5 x 7 and even some to hand out size, like a 4 x 6, would that be awesome? What if you can get all that for under $35.00? WHAT A CONCEPT!

Yes, this concept is a reality! Just give us a call, 817-329-9911 and mention this ad. HIC DESIGN AP
