About Us

Who We Are

The Mineral Wells Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau is a voluntary organization of businesses who work to advance, support, and promote the economic activities of our community, county, and surrounding area. Our business-based organization’s roots go all the way back to 1901 with the Mineral Wells Commercial Club which was later organized into a Chamber of Commerce in 1925.

The efforts of the Chamber are possible from the investments from businesses and organizations through memberships and sponsorships of events and programs. We value these vital partnerships which allow the Chamber to carry out its mission and program of work.

 

What We Do

As a non-profit business organization, we rely on member volunteers to provide leadership, vision, and service to strengthen the business climate by partnering with the city, county, local school district, and healthcare system. When the time arises, we advocate on behalf of businesses to ensure they have a voice at all levels of government. Not only are we engaged in the activities of business, but are responsible for promoting tourism within Mineral Wells and Palo Pinto County through Hotel Occupancy Tax funds. Mineral Wells was once a prominent destination for visitors and we are focused on reclaiming our heritage.

The Objectives of the Chamber are:  

  • Establish its role and level of engagement relative to economic development.
  • Identify partners to develop and enhance the community by focusing on areas that will improve the quality of life for current and future businesses and residents.
  •  Increase tourism through attractions and events by continued partnership with various community organizations, but also encourage the creation of new tourism related activities and growth of current ones.
  •  Continue to evolve and develop in a manner which encourages new members as well as retention of current members by offering programs and services that provide value.
  •  Lead the initiative to develop a brand that will create an identity that is recognizable and distinct that will show visitors and future residents we are a community with a vision and moving forward.
 

How We Do It

The Mineral Wells Area Chamber of Commerce is governed by a Board Directors and officers who are business leaders from within the membership. The board establishes a strategic plan that drives the organization and focuses its efforts to strengthen the business climate and the community culture. Committees made up of volunteers along with staff implement the strategies for carrying out the goals laid out by the board. Our members are our partners and are vital to the success of the organization. Every member has a voice in determining our future and is needed to achieve our mission.
