Who We Are

The Richardson Chamber of Commerce has been driving business success in Richardson for more than 75 years. Times have changed since we opened our doors, but our goal remains the same: to serve as the cornerstone of economic and community development in the city of Richardson.

There’s a reason we are accredited in the top 1% of chambers of commerce in the country with a 5-star rating by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

The Chamber provides members the benefit of visibility and connection. Studies show consumers are more likely to do business with businesses who have shown they support the community through Chamber membership and sponsorship.

The most profitable connections in business come from relationships, and the Chamber provides the most opportunity to associate with influential and connected people than any other source in Richardson. Being engaged is the best way to connect with decision-makers.

Each year, the Richardson Chamber of Commerce board of directors and staff review the direction of the chamber and build top goals to guide the organization throughout the year.

Mission Statement

We develop and provide leadership for our members and community through advocacy, alliances, DEI (diversity, equity, inclusion), economic and workforce development and education to advance economic prosperity.
