Our Mission is to advance, support, and promote the economic vitality of the Mineral Wells Area and Palo Pinto County.
The Chamber will create an attractive community where businesses and individuals can thrive, and visitors can enjoy what we have to offer.
Our values guide us to D.E.C.I.D.E - What we do, How we do it, Who we are doing it for.
Who We Are
The Mineral Wells Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau is a voluntary organization of citizens who are investing their time and money in a community development program - working together to improve the economics, civic and cultural well-being of the Mineral Wells area and Palo Pinto County. 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.
Any business or citizen who is interested in helping to develop the area (which means more money, more business, more jobs, and better living for everyone) is eligible to be a member of the Chamber of Commerce. The dues structure is designed to permit even the smallest business to be member. The work of the Chamber is financed by the investment of the members who support it on the basis of their ability to pay and their interest in the progress of the area.
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.
The focus of the Chamber is to promote and develop, along with our partners these six areas:
- Economic Competitiveness
- Quality Education and Workforce
- Community Redevelopment
- Infrastructure and Mobility
- Quality of Life
- Community Pride
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.
