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.
