Lancaster Chamber of Commerce
Lancaster Chamber of Commerce members are committed to doing business in the City of Lancaster and the Best Southwest Area by providing quality products, merchandise and services. It is our hope that you will give these members serious consideration when making your buying decisions. When you shop locally you contribute to the school system, municipal services, and yourself.
The Lancaster Chamber of Commerce is forging ahead in community and business support. Our membership luncheons are held each month with informative and educational programs. We host NCA5 evening events giving local businesses networking opportunities. We have quarterly meetings of the Manufacturers and Logistics Roundtable, and monthly meetings of the Small Business Council, called Better Business Breakfasts.
Each year, the Chamber hosts the annual State of the City address by our mayor. We also host a candidates forum for the community and businesses where candidates have an opportunity to meet constituents. Lancaster is a very unique city in southern Dallas County.
We are proud to enjoy amenities such as the Lancaster Regional Airport, Scenic Country View Golf Course, and a 155-year-old historic Town Square. We have the Lancaster Community Park with recreation center along with an excellent public library.
The school system is growing and striving to improve the opportunities available to students. Lancaster also has Cedar Valley College, a community college, as well as UNT-Dallas located in close proximity. These institutions of higher learning have consistently shown a willingness to offer services and support to citizens and businesses in our area.
The Lancaster Chamber of Commerce directors and staff hope that you find this directory informational and useful as you make your business connections.
