The multifaceted approach of the Greater East Dallas Chamber of Commerce provides benefits to our members in a variety of different arenas. We offer a number of forums for the promotion of all of our member businesses. We are also proud to provide our members with relevant information regarding the East Dallas community, as well as insight into local, state and national government issues. The events that provide a conduit for these benefits, and others, include our monthly luncheons that highlight a variety of topics addressed by featured keynote speakers. We also present an annual Economic Summit - essentially a "state of the union" with respect to the Dallas Economy. Member businesses and guests are encouraged to gather and exchange information through our numerous networking events, especially our Business After Hours excursions, which are hosted by a spotlighted member business. Sponsorship opportunities abound for these events, as well as for many of our other Chamber gatherings. For more information, please contact the chamber directly.
The East Dallas Chamber of Commerce was incorporated in 1945 to serve the local businesses in the East Dallas area. The Dallas Northeast Chamber of Commerce came into being January 1, 1997, with the consolidation of the East Dallas Chamber and the Lakewood Chamber. By doing so, the new chamber had an increased membership and more businesses involved with a total community development. In 2008, East Dallas Chamber became the Greater East Dallas Chamber of Commerce.
The Greater East Dallas Chamber is a member of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the State of Texas Chamber of Commerce, and the Greater Dallas Chamber of Commerce
The first Chamber of Commerce was originated in Marseilles, France, late in the 17th century. Today, every country in the world has a chamber in some form. In the United States, there are more than 40,000 Chambers of Commerce, most of which serve local communities.
