Letter from the President
For 103 years, the Navasota Grimes County Chamber of Commerce has been sharing the good word about Grimes County. The Chamber was founded in 1916 as an independent, non-profit business organization with the mission of promoting the business interests of its due-paying members and the economic interests of Grimes County.
The Chamber is not a sole entity unto itself. It is comprised of more than 350 businesses, organizations and individuals. Good people from these businesses volunteer their valuable time, expertise and resources to the efforts of the Chamber. Needless to say, the strength of the Chamber comes from its members. They are committed to progress and prosperity for all and work to enhance the Grimes County business climate for the benefit of our customers and our community.
Our By-Laws dictate the Chamber's governance. According to the By-Laws, the Chamber Board of Directors, which meets monthly, guides the organization. Every year the entire membership elects one-third of the directors, who serve overlapping three-year-terms. And every year, the directors elect a slate of officers, which includes a president, first vice president, second vice president, secretary and treasurer. The current Board is comprised of twelve voting members and five ex-officio members.
Many Chamber programs have been part of our tradition for many years. Most are evolving for the better and we’re adding new ones as needed. All programs mean to advance the interests of Navasota and Grimes County, its businesses, its residents and its visitors.
Grimes County has several wonderful and unique towns and is certainly a jewel in Texas. The Chamber’s goal is to help keep it that way. Grimes County is many things at the same time: An area full of family communities, historic towns, visitor destinations, business and industry, great restaurants, and suburban alternatives.
But what makes Grimes County so special is the people who live here. They are residents, visitors, students, shoppers, employees and community volunteers. The Chamber of Commerce is proud to be a part of the fabric of Navasota and Grimes County.
