Greetings from the Giddings Area Chamber of Commerce. We proudly present our website. We hope that you will take a minute, check it out and let us know if we can be of additional service.

The chamber has been in operation since September of 1921 and continues to give outstanding service. We anticipate a great year and will hit it head on with anticipated new challenges. We aim to continue to improve our service to our business and community as we strive to be a point of pride in the area. New businesses have moved into the community and existing businesses have expanded. The quality of life is excellent in addition to having a wonderful school system. The Chamber is the information hub that services all of Lee County.

Whether you are relocating or just here for a visit, assistance to you is only a phone call or click away. The staff of the Chamber is ready to serve you, as are the officers and directors who give so generously of their time to this vital organization. Stop by and enjoy a cup of coffee while you familiarize yourself with our warm and friendly city.

What Does a Chamber of Commerce Do?

The primary goal of a Chamber of Commerce is to look after the interests of their local businesses and to help them promote their business, commerce, trade and industry.

Members of a Chamber include merchants, manufacturers, bankers, organizations, non-profits and others who all come together as a group for the benefit of all. Chambers and Members alike gather information and contacts that are useful for the whole group.

The Chamber works alongside the Economic Development Corporation to help businesses in the community grow and thrive.
