WELCOME TO LEAGUE CITY LEAGUE CITY—CONSISTENTLY RATED AS ONE OF THE BEST PLACES IN THE U.S TO RAISE A FAMILY—BOASTS AN IDEAL LOCATION, EXCELLENT SCHOOLS, BEAUTIFUL HOMES, AND A RAPIDLY GROWING ECONOMY. Welcome to 2020! As we begin the new decade, your League City Regional Chamber of Commerce wishes you a prosperous new year as we partner together to achieve your business’s goals. With nearly 600 members, our Chamber continues to grow based on the fundamentals of creating an atmosphere of engagement, education, networking to the business members it serves. I’m excited about our newly elected board that draws from a diversity of business leaders from many different business sectors including financial services, health care, real estate, non-profit and many others. Our Chamber is comprised of CEOS, small business owners, heads of non-profits, elected officials and other leaders in these fields and leaders in our communities. Drawing from this depth and engagement, our members can feel confident that we as a Chamber are tapping into this leadership and knowledge base to grow our members’ businesses. 2020 is the “Year of Small Business”! Each month we will celebrate and educate our members by showcasing a different industry. Some of the sectors we will focus on are real estate, financial services, tourism, the automotive industry and much more! During these months, we will have breakfast panels of leading experts in the community as they are presented questions and challenges by a moderator, followed by Q&A from the audience. I encourage everyone to attend and engage with these experts. We will also fill our MOMENTUM magazine with articles related to the industry of the month, written by those “in the know”! We encourage you to visit our website at www.leaguecitychamber.com where you can see all upcoming events and a list of our members to help you “buy local”. As we continue to grow our Chamber, we are focused on you, our member, and with that we will continue to provide entertaining and educational events and panels, networking events and tools to help you succeed. We encourage you to engage by attending these great events and by visiting your Chamber to get to meet our President Dewan and his great staff. 2020 Chairman of the Board James Brockway, Brockway Realty, LLC Sitting along a lush creek just off the eastern Gulf Coast of Texas is a bustling city marked by towering oaks and meandering bayous.
