Discover how chambers of commerce are relevant in communities across North Texas when Host Larry Kortkamp talks with Farmers Branch Chamber Executive Director, Grace Speese. Chambers are reflections of the city as well as a business growth opportunity. In Farmers Branch, Texas, city council, schools, the mayor, local and national brands, and even churches are all part of the chamber community.

Grace explains how grants, workforce development, and exposure opportunities exist within these relationships. Some chambers operate as non profits, others function in the private sector community, and others function more in an economic development capacity. Understanding how your brand interacts with the chamber will help you gain awareness and market share. 

Participation means engagement and visibility, so take advantage of all the aspects of chamber function, beyond networking alone. Grace and Larry discuss how various businesses can add value to their chamber, bringing their various gifts to bear in excellence - whatever that may be.
