About the program

The Business Advancement Committee, in partnership with the City of Richardson Economic Development team, is dedicated to supporting local business development by providing educational resources and opportunities to enhance business engagement with a strategic focus on topics covering commercial real estate, international business and growth and mobility.

Get involved

Serving on a committee is one of your strongest relationship building tools, working side-by-side with other business leaders. Chamber members can join the Business Advancement committee, which plans events and activities that benefit the service, educational and networking goals of the committee.  Your involvement makes a difference!

Committee meetings are held monthly on the first Wednesdays at 8:30 am via Zoom or in person at the Chamber offices.  If you're interested in joining, fill out the volunteer form.  We will contact you to place you on future calendar invites.

If you're interested in sponsoring Business Advancement events, please contact us.
