    Message from the Vice President
    This year, the Lewisville Area Chamber held 108 business networking and acumen events, over 35 ribbon cutting ceremonies, and over 70 committee meetings. We have had a most productive year creating relevant resources to ensure our local businesses thrive.
    Looking forward to the New Year, I am very excited to say we have developed more relevant, innovative networking and business development opportunities for our members. Chamber members, you spoke up and we listened! We are mixing things up to provide more focused B2B networking, more opportunities to create deeper networking relationships, and much more. Stay tuned for what will be a fabulous 2018!

    Yes, You Can Make Office Politics Less Toxic
    I once served on the board of a nonprofit with a group of men and women I deeply admired. Board meetings were an uninterrupted joy. Even lengthy conference calls were opportunities for spontaneous sharing, personal connection, and productive problem-solving. It was Camelot. Until it wasn't.

    LISD Board talks enrollment declines, staff cuts, 'Robin Hood' recapture
    In workshop session Monday night, Lewisville ISD trustees took a first look at the budget situation for next year and what an unexpected decline in student enrollment means for staffing and funding. They also looked at LISD's looming forced participation in the state's "Robin Hood" recapture scheme. Under recapture, the district will have to start sending property tax dollars to the state.
