The evening will also highlight and honor key pillars of the community that have made a significant difference in the lives of Houstonians. Leaders from six sectors in the business community including: Medical, Oil & Gas, Commercial Development, NASA, Sports & Education will be honored this year. We will also honor our Chamber businesses and key volunteers.

“It’s hard to believe, our Chamber was established just 5 years after the building of the Texas Medical Center began.”

Chamber History

The Houston Metropolitan Chamber was established as the Bellaire Chamber of Commerce August 12, 1949.  The Chamber later changed the name to Greater South West Houston Chamber of Commerce to incorporate a larger service area.  In response to the City’s increased development as a global gateway, the Chamber created the dba of Houston Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce to serve the greater metropolitan area.  The Chamber maintains working relationships with the International Chambers that share our community, thus giving our members access to additional marketplaces and cultures.  The Houston Metropolitan Chamber is committed to offering members a Chamber with solid, hometown roots and an ever-growing international reach.  We are ‘boots on the ground’ serving start-ups, and small to medium sized businesses, by offering a premier platform for visibility and growth.

Recognizing and Honoring Community Leaders

The Gala Team and the HMC Board of Directors have nominated business categories to be recognized at the Gala this year. The six sectors include:

  • Commercial Development
  • NASA
  • Education
  • Sports
  • Medical
  • Oil & Gas

These leaders have played a critical role in developing and shaping the city we all share and call home. Join us in showing our appreciation and honoring them at the HMC Platinum Gala November 2, 2019 at The Citadel.
