    The mission of the Lewisville Area Chamber of Commerce is to promote economic growth of the business community.
    From the Chamber
    Friday is a big day this week with TWO exciting opportunities to network and meet new people! If you haven’t already, put our LEADS Power Networking meetings on your calendar. We meet every Friday morning at 8:00 a.m. at the chamber office, and it’s the perfect way to connect with other businesses. Give it a try – you’ll be glad you did!
    Also, we are ramping our Women’s Division up again with a casual, fun lunch this Friday at Verf’s Grill & Tavern. We want to give women in business more ways to connect and an opportunity to support and encourage each other. This is just a “show up and order from the menu” kind of event, and we would love to have you there!
    As always, we put our members first and are constantly looking for more ways to provide what your business needs!
