    “Lone Star College has been a member of the chamber for many years. We stay engaged at the board level and with the higher membership level because of the benefits we receive from doing so. The numerous chamber members, large groups who attend each of the chamber events and the multiple ways they market both in print and digitally promote the image of Lone Star College and the services we provide in ways we could not do otherwise.”

    “Sam Houston State University enjoys a strong relationship with The Woodlands Chamber and its wonderful members. Our membership enables our university and The Woodlands Center-SHSU facility on the campus of Lone Star College-Montgomery to be visible partners with the community. With the advent of Sam Houston State’s proposed osteopathic medical college in Grand Central Park, our partnership with the chamber will only grow stronger through a symbiotic relationship between The Woodlands, the Montgomery County medical community, and the university. I am convinced our active involvement with The Woodlands Chamber plays a significant role in the ongoing growth of the university, while the development of game-changing academic programs such as the osteopathic medical college will benefit the region in countless ways for many years to come.”

    “I joined the Chamber in 2009 and was inspired to expand my network and serve on various teams within the chamber. Over the past 10 years, I’ve not only developed strong relationships, I’ve been awarded opportunities to serve and lead on many teams within this amazing organization. I’ve been blessed to have served under such influential mentors within our community and the leadership skills that I’ve developed have had a direct impact on my current role with Marsh & McLennan Agency. Relationships take time to develop, and I am so fortunate that the majority of my new business opportunities today, are a direct result of the relationships that were built and the referrals that come through The Woodlands Area Chamber.”

    “One of the best business decisions I made was joining the Chamber in 1999 with Edward Jones. I credit my successful financial services career to my involvement in the Chamber. I was honored to serve as the Chairman of the Board in 2016 which was a culmination of years of volunteering and hard work. Without the Chamber, I would have never been able to achieve the level of success I have experienced both professionally and personally.”
