Message from the Chairman

"We encourage you to learn about the success that the Chamber has had over its 100 years of existence ..." -David Newman

T

Dear Friends, he Laredo Chamber of Commerce celebrated its 100th birthday this year. As one might imagine, reaching a milestone of this magnitude is something few organizations can accomplish. In the last 100 years, the Chamber leadership and its members have made countless contributions to the city of Laredo and its development. In the early part of the last century they fought bravely to bring air mail service to the area. As early as 1939, the group visualized Laredo’s future in the import/export industry and created the Laredo Port Commission (LPC), which actively promoted Laredo’s capabilities and lobbied for adequate federal funding. Later in in the 1950’s, they worked arduously to successfully obtain from the U.S. government authorization for “Paso Libre” at our port of entry during the Washington’s Birthday Celebration – a step which contributed tremendously to our retail industry. And, in 1993, once more the Chamber forces rallied in support of NAFTA and traveled to Washington, DC, to promote passage of the treaty. No one can deny that NAFTA led to Laredo’s status as leading port on the southern border. We encourage you to learn about the success that the Chamber has had over its 100 years of existence, because every single challenge and every single hurdle that the Chamber has had to overcome in this century-long trek in one way or another has been to the benefit of this community. Browse through the pages of this publication. Learn what the Chamber is and what it will con-

tinue to do in the next century … And seriously consider joining us. Together we can go further. Together we can do so much more.

Sincerely,

David Newman

THE INCEPTION OF LAREDO CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

O

riginally organized as the Laredo Board of Trade in 1910, the name was changed to the Laredo Chamber of Commerce in April, 1914 and the Charter was secured in April 1915. In September 1934 the Laredo Business Men’s Association was formed, which, on October 15, 1934, merged with the Chamber of Commerce, the board of Di-

rectors of the new organization becoming the board of the merged groups. In 1927, a tourist bureau was organized by the Chamber of Commerce. Both offices assisted tourists in entering Mexico and helped plan motor trips in that country. The Tourist Bureau had four employees who would serve more than 23,000 tourists every year. International affairs constituted a large part of the activities of the Laredo

History

Chamber of Commerce and close relations were maintained with all of the high federal and state officials of Mexico. The increasing importance of Laredo as not only the gateway to Mexico, but eventually the gateway to all of Latin America through the continuation south of the Pan American highway made this phase of the work of the Chamber of Commerce of paramount importance to our community and abroad.


Message from the President

A Century Strong!

N

Dear Friends,

ot too many businesses or organizations can make that boast. The Laredo Chamber of Commerce can. Founded in 1915, this year this organization reached the century year mark. And for all that form part of it, this has been a cause for celebration. A well –deserved celebration, for as the Chamber grew it has had a definite impact on a developing Laredo. In preparing for this year’s celebration, I’ve had the opportunity to review the Chamber’s history and look back and marvel at what the leadership of this organization accomplished over the years. But, more importantly, I’ve been able to truly understand how many of these accomplishments in one form or another contributed to forging the Laredo of today. Names that led this organization jump out of the pages of local history. Names like Matias De Llano, W.J. Sames, Sam Johnson, Radcliffe Killam, A.E. Guajardo , and many more. Individuals that as early as 1915 were aligning forces with surrounding communities to resist rising freight rates set for interstate commerce; securing a target range for Fort McIntosh; maintaining a customs headquarters in Laredo in opposition to efforts to transfer it to San Antonio. And, later in the decade of the 50’s, a major force in working with state and national government to advance construction of the international bridge destroyed by the flood of 1954. And, it doesn’t stop there. NAFTA came later as did a push for immigration reform and more. The tasks for a new group of leaders are ever-present. I’ve been fortunate. I have been able to work through almost a third of this organization’s history alongside many of Laredo’s best. And I have seen them unselfishly jump in and carry the banner forward. Always looking out for Laredo’s interest.

We are now headed into a new century. The goals may vary some and strategies may differ. But the need for leadership within the business community is vital. I feel satisfied that as my generation moves on, a younger generation will take its place and move this organization forward. And along with it, always the welfare of this community. I am proud to be part of this organization as it celebrates its centennial. The Laredo Chamber – A Century Strong!

Sincerely,

Miguel A. Conchas President and CEO 8

History

A LOOK INTO THE LAREDO CHAMBER OF COMMERCE'S SUCCESSION

T

he simple act of handing over the gavel to his successor marked for David Newman the end of his administration as Chairman of the Board for the Laredo Chamber of Commerce. Newman turned over the reins of the Chamber to newly elected Chairman of the Board Mario Pena at the 2015 Recognition of Volunteers and Awards Ceremony held on September 30. The gavel exchange, however, symbolically reflected much more - the end of a year of celebration as the Chamber reached its 100th birthday and, as Pena so aptly put it, “... the beginning of a new century for the Chamber.” The gavel exchange also forged one more link in the chain of succession for the leadership of this organization. For regardless of the challenges faced over the last 100 years, the Chamber moved on there has always been a leader ready to step up. Founded in 1915, the Laredo Chamber of Commerce is the oldest established business organization in Laredo. The organization has also managed to keep up with the times and currently counts about 650 members within its rolls. The city of Laredo has reaped the fruits of the organization’s labor. They have grown the business community on the border and thus grown the local economy through their grassroots, unionized effort. The Laredo Chamber of Commerce has shown that its longevity is a result of membership participation and the leadership of past chairmen who oversee the organization for the period of one fiscal year. This revolving door policy has made the organization see a multitude of chairmen that serve first as members and then rise to the coveted leadership position. The chamber’s history directly correlates with its past chairmen due to their unique qualities and the historical events that shaped not only the local business community, but also the global economic climate. Some of these well-respected past chairmen shared their experiences: JAVIER GARZA, CHAIRMAN FROM 1971 TO 1972 Garza said he remembered that Luis Echeverria was president of Mexico during his time as chairman of the chamber. Echeverria was president from 1970 to 1976. “Echeverria had a tight pull on trade and the border,” Garza said. “It affected our retail sales, but it didn’t last too long.” According to a book authored by Jaime Suchlicki, during the Echeverria administration in Mexico, the country’s industrialization and import substitution policies, which relied on imported capital good and foreign technology failed to prove its sustainability. Additionally, Echeverria inherited a trade deficit from his predecessor. Stateside, the Nixon administration had imposed a 10 percent tax on all imports, which Mexico could not afford. “It was a little scary at the time because we had a lot of retail buyers,” Garza said. “I remember that vividly.” Garza was working for Laredo National Bank at the time, where he eventually received the title of second vice president.

Javier Garza

ALAN JACKSON, CHAIRMAN FROM 1976 TO 1977 Alan Jackson also dealt with the turmoil that came from Mexico’s flailing economy. “The most significant event that happened during my presidency was that there was a significant peso devaluation,” Jackson said. Mexico’s economic issues led to a depression in 1976. Jackson, like many chairmen before and after him, worked in the area of 16

Alan Jackson


economics. He currently serves as senior commercial producer of IBC Insurance Agency, LTD and president for InsCorp, Inc.

Dennis Longoria

Dennis Nixon

James Moore

DENNIS LONGORIA, CHAIRMAN FROM 1977 TO 1978 Rising from the rubble Laredo endured because of the peso devaluation in ‘76, the city began to stand on its own two feet again due to a growing local market and the development of the retail sector. Dennis Longoria remembered the most significant event of his chairmanship to be the opening of Mall del Norte. “We participated in the opening, and it was a huge event. ... There were dignitaries from Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, Chihuahua. We even had Miss USA and Miss Texas there,” Longoria said. Another significant event Longoria said that occurred was the opening of another airline at the old airport. “There was only one airline passenger service coming in and out of Laredo. ... We actively sought out another airline passenger service, but we were blocked by the existing airline.” Longoria said the chamber even lobbied in front of the Texas Aeronautical Commission to open the second airline service for the growing Laredo population. At the same time that people were looking for a way to fly out of Laredo, the chamber was also promoting ways to bring people into the city as tourists. Back in the 1970s, Longoria said the city would allocate funds to the chamber’s Visitor’s Bureau. This was before the creation of the entity Laredoans know now as the Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, which is a separate organization in and of itself. Still a proud member of the chamber, Longoria said he retired as director of governmental affairs for Central Power and Light Company. DENNIS NIXON, CHAIRMAN FROM 1978 TO 1979 Nixon came to Laredo in 1970, he said. He was recruited to head the Union National Bank. He would subsequently move on to International Bank of Commerce where he would serve as chairman. He said also immediately after moving to Laredo, he became active with the chamber as it was and is the “primary business organization in the city.” Laredo at the time of his chairmanship, he said, was in a period of active development. “Cross border trading was the biggest thing going on,” Nixon said. “Trade has always been the biggest industry and biggest contributor of economic growth in our city.” In addition to his year spent as chairman of the chamber, he was also chairman of the Laredo Development Foundation, a now free-standing organization that started out as one of the chamber’s committees. When asked what he loved most about the organization, Nixon said its collegiality. “The friendships that you build. I’ve met lots and lots of folks through the chamber, and it has sort of been an anchor to those relationships. It’s been a great experience to build lifelong friendships,” said Nixon. JAMES MOORE, CHAIRMAN FROM 1989 TO 1990 Like Nixon before him, Moore came to Laredo following a job offer. Moore was working as a senior credit underwriter for South Texas when he was appointed chairman of the chamber. “I got involved with Laredo Chamber of Commerce with my job at the bank. The bank expected us to be involved in the community.” He would later retire from the BBVA Compass Bank. He is still not only an active member of the chamber and various local organizations, but also teaches elementary school students every other semester through a program he implemented during his chairmanship with the chamber. Moore brought the Junior Achievement program to Laredo through the chamber. Now, it is a free-standing program. 17


According to its official website, the Junior Achievement program is the world’s largest organization dedicated to educating students about workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on learning. GLENN JACKSON, CHAIRMAN FROM 1990 TO 1991 Like his older brother before him, Glenn Jackson followed in Alan Jackson’s footsteps when he became chairman for the chamber. Like the good times the chamber had, there were not-so-good times as well. During Jackson’s chairmanship, he said there was a change of management. “The old one left and the new one came. ... People got their feathers ruffled,” Jackson said. “We accepted a resignation and accepted a new one for the betterment of the chamber.” A goal that every chairman said was on his or her list of priorities is to grow the membership list to 1,000 active members, and Jackson was not an exception. “It was my goal to get the membership up to 1,000, and we got pretty close,” he said. During Jackson’s chairmanship, he said the member count was just over 900. MIGUEL A. CONCHAS, PRESIDENT SINCE 1992 Conchas initially became involved with the chamber in 1986 when Dianne Mendoza Freeman hired him to be the director of the promotions department. He worked in that position for six years before being named president of the organization, a title which he holds to this day. “I’ve worked with over 20 chairmen. Each one of them is different in the way that they handle things, but I’ve always enjoyed working with them because each of them have their goals they wish to accomplish,” Conchas said. A significant event that Conchas remembers from his nearly three decades with the chamber is the political position it took supporting the construction of a now Laredo landmark. “The chamber took a very strong stand in building the arena,” Conchas said. The talks initiated in 1993, Conchas said, “We were the only group in town that went to City Council and said, ‘This would be good for our economy.’” In addition to their support for the construction of the arena, the chamber also wholly supported the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement. “There were about 12 or 15 of us that went to D.C. There was a lot of opposition from folks in Washington, and we spoke in support of it. ... We lobbied. We pushed for

it, and eventually it passed. We took a really strong stand and voiced our opinion,” he said. “Since then, international trade has been a major industry in Laredo” As president, Conchas is in charge of the office on a daily basis, creates a budget every year, supervises expenditures and supports the Chairman and executive board. Sometimes, he hosts informal meetings with members of the chamber called “Cafe con Conchas,” where members have a snack with their president and talk about current issues with the organization. The South Texas Alliance for Regional Trade, he said, meets every month to promote the entirety of South Texas as an attractive region. Representatives from Corpus Christi and San Antonio meet with Conchas and members of the chamber to discuss strategies. “I remember when Mr. Moore was chairman, they opened a tourism office in Monterrey. The city continues to have that office there today. It’s called Casa Laredo. That was also an accomplishment because there are not that many cities that open up tourist offices in other countries,” Conchas said. “We just went through a recession about four years ago. Financial situations always present obstacles. As business members, the economy affects us. That’s when we lose members. First you got to pay your bills, then your membership costs. The economy is always a major, major challenge.” WILLIAM B. GREEN, CHAIRMAN FROM 1992 TO 1993 Like Nixon and Moore before him, Green came to Laredo following a business opportunity. Green took over Laredo Morning Times as publisher at the end of 1986. Almost immediately following the move, he became an active member of the Chamber of Commerce starting in 1987. “It was not so much for me, but I think it’s important for the newspaper to be involved in the community. ... Small business owners — they are job creators,” Green said. “The newspaper should, as best it can, give back to the community.” According to Green, the Laredo Morning Times currently employs about 50 people. Back when he started, however, that number was much larger as the paper printed its own product in-house. Because Green’s chairmanship ended in October 1993, a mere three months before the passage of NAFTA, the entire year, he said, was dedicated to learning more about the massive contract the country was signing onto. “(NAFTA) would position Laredo very successfully. ... I remember the CEO of the Hearst Corporation came down to the Lar18

edo Morning Times’ offices in 1992 to learn more about it,” Green said. Trade in Laredo has more than quadrupled since then. Green, who at one point in his life seriously considered a career as a banker, majored in economics in college. “I’ve always enjoyed learning about trade. ... It fascinates me what it means in terms of job growth.” During Green’s chairmanship, he pointed out that Laredo had not yet constructed its third and fourth bridges. However, due to NAFTA, these infrastructure changes were made to accommodate the boom that came with the trade industry.

Elmo Lopez, Jr.

John Adams

ELMO LOPEZ, JR., CHAIRMAN FROM 1995 TO 1996 Recently named CEO of Gateway Community Health Center, Lopez, at the time of his chairmanship, was working for IBC. Because of Laredo’s increasingly strong bonds to Mexico, Lopez capitalized on this occurrence and took members of the chamber to an economic outlook conference in Mexico City. He said there were a large number of attendees from both sides of the border. In addition to the Mexico City trip, the group also traveled to Washington D.C. to lend expertise on U.S.-Mexico relations. “To close the year, we had (then) Governor George Bush at the Laredo Country Club,” Lopez said. “All the members were impressed, and he spoke about U.S.-Mexico relations, and he loved Laredo. He had been here several times. And he went on to be president (of the U.S.). That’s exciting!” JOHN ADAMS, CHAIRMAN FROM 1999 TO 2000 Although he no longer lives in Laredo, past-Chairman Adams, who now works for the A&M system’s economic development department in College Station, said he has fond memories from his time with the chamber. “There are very few chambers that make it to 100 years,” he said. “There can’t be very many. ... It shows how engaged Laredo is, and that people are working to improve the community. It’s very significant.” Through his experience with the chamber, Adams was able to pen the text “Conflict and Commerce on the Rio Grande,” about business in Laredo for the last 150 years. “I was there at a time when Laredo was really taking off and growing. NAFTA was kicking in, the Colombia Bridge was being built,” Adams said. “First I worked on committees, then I worked on the executive committee, and after that I was nominated

Clema Owen

as part of the process of become chairman. ... They’re developing new chairmen all the time. Miguel Conchas is the critical thread that keeps everything going.” Adams worked in banking in Laredo for nearly 10 years before transitioning to the position of president of the Laredo Development Foundation, another chamber affiliate. According to the 2000 census, Laredo was ranked as the second-fastest growing city in the U.S. This label, Adams said, attracted a lot of attention, especially in terms of interest in trade and maquilas on the other side of the border. “I remember I did an interview with the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal. It’s like, all of sudden, everyone discovered Laredo,” Adams said. “We began to use the word branding. ... We began to use the term ‘Los Dos Laredos’ very heavily back then.” CLEMA OWEN, CHAIRMAN FROM 2004 TO 2005 Owen was only the second woman to ever be named chairman of the chamber — Cynthia Mares being the first. “We started seeing a transition that allowed women to be chairman of the board,” Owen said. Owen came to Laredo with her husband Chuck from Corpus Christi following growing opportunities in the hospitality industry. “I’ve always said that the chamber was the vehicle that kept my late husband, Chuck, and I in Laredo,” Owen said. Owen worked at the Holiday Inn–Civic Center at the time she was named chairman. She worked there as a logic consultant. Subsequently, she and her husband opened the Hampton Inn property, and she worked at the Homewood Inn and Suites as general manager. Following these titles, she moved to the Embassy Suites, and she now works as a logic consultant at the Courtyard Marriott. “Due to our location with Mexico, and logistics and the shopping nature of our travelers coming from the south, we were continuing with a new onslaught of hotels at that time,” Owen said. During her chairmanship, Owen said she pursued obtaining group insurance for members of the chamber and established an event calendar. “It has been such a wonderful experience to live and work in this community. Being chairman of the chamber has been the highlight of my career. ... I’m a Laredoan by choice, not by birth,” Owen said. Gabriela Trevino Laredo Morning Times By: Gabriela Treviño

CHAMBER AT WORK • Increased tourist traffic has caused construction of modern tourist camps, hotels, and garages. • Government recognition of Laredo section as the future citrus producing center, on a commercial scale. • Wide spread publicity through syndicating tourist facilities unique on the border. • Goodwill and cooperation of Mexico federal officials through policy of conciliation and mutual help. • At the time when the Mexican government was undecided as to whether it should complete the Monterrey highway or not due to financial considerations, the Chamber of Commerce organized automobile caravans with view of increasing that city’s trade that urged in personal contact with Mexican road officials, that the road be completed. • The Department of Commerce with which very close contact was maintained and with which the Chamber of Commerce worked very closely in stimulating export trade, decided to appoint the Laredo Chamber of Commerce cooperative office of that Department. This gave Laredo constant national publicity. • Due to the efforts of the Chamber of Commerce, the American Bed Company, established for long years in Monterrey, Mexico, moved its entire plant to Nuevo Laredo, giving both cities an additional payroll. The Laredo Chamber of Commerce based this action on the theory that industries which cannot possibly be established on the American side should be secured for the Mexican

side, as it represents a benefit to our city. Besides this factory, the Laredo Chamber of Commerce was instrumental in securing for Nuevo Laredo the Miller Textile plant which employs a considerable number of men. • After a hard fought battle against very heavy odds, the International Air Mail route to Mexico was secured for Laredo in competition with Brownsville. It was a matter of record that not only the Houston, Corpus Christi, Brownsville and Tampico Chambers of Commerce did everything in their power to secure that service, but the most serious obstacle for Laredo was the fact that the Postal Department in Washington openly favored the Brownsville route. The vigorous campaign to secure the air mail was conducted by the Chambers of Laredo, San Antonio, Nuevo Laredo and Monterrey for over half a year. It was furthermore a matter of record that the Postmaster General of Mexico requested the Laredo Chamber of Commerce to help him in having the air mail routed by way Laredo. The matter reached its climax when Assistant Postmaster General, Irving Glover, made his trip to Mexico and at that point of the proceedings, a representative of the Laredo Chamber of Commerce went to Brownsville to meet him, and another one went to Monterrey to enlist the aid of the Governor of the State. It is again a matter of record, that due to this energetic action of the Laredo Chamber of Commerce, the Mexican government in spite of everything, finally decided on the Laredo route. • The Laredo Chamber of Commerce succeeded in interesting the City Council in the project of building a first class municipal airport, and the result of all this work was not only the establishment of the air mail route,

and the proposed building of the airport, but nationwide publicity for our city, as the connecting link on the air mail line to Mexico and South America. Letters coming in every day inquiring about the airport are a plain evidence of this fact. • The Laredo Chamber of Commerce initiated the great work of building a concrete road on the Corpus Christi highway. Officials of the Chamber of Commerce made frequent trips to Austin for the purpose of thwarting such efforts as were made to build a cheaper type of road in Zapata County. It is due solely to personal efforts of the Directors and staff of the Chamber of Commerce and their constant personal contact with the members of the State Highway Department that after so many years of fruitless efforts, the Department was sufficiently interested to grade the entire stretch through Zapata County. Quite a number of trips were made by members of the Board to Austin, San Antonio, Cotulla and other towns on the line, and a result of all this work was construction of the first stretch between Dilley and Cotulla. • For a number of years a condition existing in reference to shipments imported from Mexico which caused constant inconveniences and extra expense to shippers, and seriously threatened Laredo’s position as foremost port on the border. After a meeting called by the Chamber of Commerce, which was attended by shippers and American and Mexican customs and railway officials, a petition was made to the Mexican government to authorize issuance of a certified copy of the bill of lading for the Mexican National Lines. This petition was granted, solving a problem that seriously threatened Laredo’s position as the foremost border port.

“There are many institutions in Laredo enjoying the same number of memberships in the Chamber of Commerce as they did ten years ago. This despite the fact that they have acquired great wealth and growth with the city. I hope that these institutions will show the proper civic spirit by increasing memberships in proportion to their present business growth”

–Matias De Llano

Chamber celebrates milestone

ne-hundred colorful balloons decorated the sky Thursday morning as the Laredo Chamber of Commerce celebrated promoting businesses for 10 decades. First established in 1915, the Laredo Chamber of Commerce is one of the oldest business organizations in Laredo, representing over 650 members in various industries ranging from financial institutions and retailers to transportation, logistics and service providers. During the ceremony held to commemorate the chamber’s 100th anniversary, Mayor Pete Saenz officially proclaimed April 1 as “Laredo Chamber of Commerce 100th Anniversary Day.” Saenz applauded the organization’s work

in ensuring the success of the Laredo metropolitan area. “It is a truly deserving recognition,” Saenz said. The proclamation comes 100 years after the chamber was chartered by the state of Texas on April 1, 1915. The nonprofit organization kicked off its anniversary celebration in January. To honor the milestone, the organization launched a new marketing campaign and a celebration logo. The marketing campaign’s main focus is to communicate how the chamber has assisted businesses by connecting buyers and suppliers. The logo’s tagline, “A Century Strong,” demonstrates the strength of the chamber

and its members. David Newman said he was eager to attend to all his new responsibilities as chairman of the Laredo Chamber of Commerce's board of directors. “I didn’t realize when I took on the role that it would be the 100th anniversary,” he said. “I’m looking forward to what the rest of the year will bring for us.” The chamber will continue its year-long celebration with numerous business and social events. One of the events, the Centennial Gala, will feature former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw. The event is set for May 7 at the Laredo Energy Arena.

Celebrating 100 years

n honor of celebrating 100 years of the Laredo Chamber of Commerce, members of the organization felt they deserved a little something special. Terry Bradshaw, former NFL quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers who led the team to four Super Bowl championships, was invited to give the keynote address at the chamber’s dinner and gala event Thursday night at the Laredo Energy Arena. Bradshaw had the crowd laughing for an hour straight. His speech was motivational, albeit erratic, and sprinkled with hilarious one-liners. Bradshaw began by telling the crowd about his career and how he had to face naysayers. “Now, I’m 66 (years old), and I don’t really care, and I don’t hear most of it anyway,” he said. He said he dated his current wife, Tammy, for 15 years before getting married in July. “You could be butt ugly, but if you’re rich, you could have the prettiest woman on your side,” he said. “I love being ugly. There are no high expectations for us,” he said. “I married up, you know. Fellas, if you’ve ever been divorced, you know. We’ve got a mobile home now!” The crowd roared in laughter at Bradshaw’s high energy and off-color humor. He used his body as well during his speech, even rolling on the floor at one point in the night. His humor, however, was outshined by his positive outlook on life as he tried to tie his experiences as a football player to the local business community. “Sometimes business doesn’t come in. I understand that. … Sometimes, you’re going to get hit. Let me tell you, that stuff hurts! Getting

hit. If you play poorly, you will get booed … Happiness comes and goes based in the day’s activities and the hugs and kisses from your wife and whether your kids are sick or not. … Hope gets you to tomorrow. Hope is cool,” he said. Earlier he had mentioned how a hurricane was set to strike the area around his home, and how he hoped everything would be fine when he arrived. “If not, we are going to buy us a house here in Laredo, and I hope we get a good deal,” he said, laughing. At one point, Bradshaw made the crowd reach out to the person next to them and shake their hands. Then, he urged them to give each other a hug, and after that he ordered them to kiss. “That’s what I’m bringing tonight – love! What am I gonna do? Impress you with my knowledge? I got a reputation for being stupid … I would lose you all just talking about football though. I am a caphorphsis of knowledge,” he said as everyone laughed. “That’s not the word, but it sounds good. God called me to be a football player. Ain’t nothing wrong with that.” Bradshaw’s ability to poke fun at himself is what made him likeable and made the crowd laugh at his self-deprecating jokes. At Louisiana Tech University, Phil Robertson, of Duck Dynasty fame, played first-string quarterback, ahead of Bradshaw. “I would have quit a long time ago when I couldn’t make a football team … Duck Dynasty beat me out!” Bradshaw said. “There’s nothing greater than perseverance. … If you’re not happy, get into something else. Don’t do something for the money. There is nothing greater in the world than making a dream come true. … We are the

difference-makers. We are not normal. Thank you, Laredo. Where can I get my check?” After the speech, as everyone was shedding tears from laughing so hard, Miguel Conchas walked up to the stage and presented Bradshaw with a gift on behalf of the Laredo Chamber of Commerce. “You said you liked the Cowboys right?” Conchas said, jokingly, referring to the football team. Conchas then presented Bradshaw with a painting by renowned local artist Armando Hinojosa. Hinojosa has been commissioned to produce sculptures all around the state of Texas including the Tejano Monument in Austin. The painting presented to Bradshaw was a portrait of a cowboy on horseback. Miguel Conchas, president and CEO of Laredo Chamber of Commerce, said Bradshaw was invited to give the keynote because the chamber was looking for a guest who would attract attention and a crowd. Two of the four Super Bowl championships Bradshaw won with the Steelers were against the Dallas Cowboys in 1976 and 1979 – two feats that are forever engrained in the minds of diehard Cowboys fans, such as Conchas and other members of the Chamber of Commerce. “Most of us men know who Terry Bradshaw is because we like football, and we’re Cowboys fans. And a lot of women knew who he was because he does a lot of television appearances like (The) Ellen (Degeneres Show). When we approached members of the chamber of commerce about bringing Terry, some of them said they had already seen him give speeches in other places and said that he was really funny and motivational,” Conchas said.

Commemorating the last day of 100 years

O

ne of the city’s oldest organizations, the Laredo Chamber of Commerce, celebrated its centennial year this year, and its events and achievements culminated into what was the 2015 Recognition of Volunteers and Awards Ceremony at the Laredo Country Club. The ceremonial passing of the gavel was also done, which connoted the end of the chamber’s 100 years, and as Chairman-elect Mario Peña put it, “the first day of the next 100 years.” Incumbent Chairman David Newman addressed the crowd of members, board executives and past chairmen presenting the “State of the Chamber,” outlining the year’s past events. A need for money, he said, was what inspired the gala event where past NFL hero, Terry Bradshaw, was the keynote speaker. “As long as I live, I’ll remember that night, and I’ll remember this year,” Newman said. “Here we had this 67-year-old with rheuma-

toid arthritis and he was rolling on the floor, making us laugh.” The chamber also announced a speaker series where Laredo Mayor Pete Saenz and Webb County Judge Tano Tijerina participated as guests of honor. Newman reminded the incoming chairman and executive committee of the importance and “the need to work with our youth.” A section of those honored at the event were chairman appointees, which were young adults who acted as interns for the chamber. Newman also shared the obstacles he faced throughout the year as chairman. “A lot of people say that the years are going by quickly, but this year went slow for me. I love the chamber, but I had to be somewhere every freakin’ day. It drove me crazy,” Newman said, laughing. Another event the chamber executed was the annual 4th of July Tailgate BBQ event.

Members of the organization also visited Washington D.C. Parker and the late George Neel Jr. were recognized by the chamber as the 2015 Businessperson of the year for their contributions to the local title and abstract industry. Before stepping down and passing the podium space to Peña, Newman said, “It’s all yours, sweetheart.” After the audience erupted into giggles, Peña commended Newman for his honorable work as chairman in throughout the year. The items he announced he would be focusing on during his time as chairman would be increasing memberships, membership retention, improving program development and adding new committees on transportation and border issues. Peña concluded by repeating a phrase that Pope Francis had repeated at every stop on his recent trip to the U.S. “Remember to pray for me,” Peña said.
