About the Chamber
The United Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce is an 1100 member organization representing business in the Coastal Bend region of South Texas. A 31 member Board of Directors forms the policy level of the organization. The President/CEO and a dedicated team of 8 full time and 2 part term interns manage the operations and daily work of the Chamber. Additionally we have a 501c3 supporting organization, The United Corpus Christi Chamber Foundation which operates programs devoted to leadership, education and workforce development. Our members and volunteers represent a cross section of all types and sizes of business in our community.
The City of Corpus Christi, Texas, was fortunate to have been served by two significant business organizations for over 100 years. In December 2015, the memberships of the 100-year-old Corpus Christi Chamber of the Commerce and the 78-year-old Corpus Christi Hispanic Chamber of Commerce reached a conclusion of historic significance. In an overwhelming vote by both memberships, the two groups created one, new and united organization to represent the entire Corpus Christi business community. This joining of rich histories, significant accomplishments and a commitment to board diversity with women and minority participation reflective of the community’s demographics, provides a cohesive voice for business. As the chief advocate for the entire business community, we serve as a multidimensional model where the diversity and inclusion function is part of all facets our unified chamber.
The United Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce is the premier organization working to advance economic prosperity for all business while preserving the region’s diverse cultures.
To unite Corpus Christi to be the best place to live and work.
The United Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce recognizes that strength comes from diversity and unification with a cultural awareness of the value of the local Hispanic legacy and culture that inspires and helps all business in the Corpus Christi region to succeed. In both its values and practices, the United Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce is committed to the inclusion and excellence in the management of all diverse people irrespective of differences. There are no barriers to participation in any activity on the basis of economic position, gender, race, creed, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, or disability. Diverse perspectives are important and necessary for responsible and representative decision-making. We affirm our commitment to reflecting the diversity of Corpus Christi and the Members of the United Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce.
