ABOUT THE BROWNSVILLE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE:



The Brownsville Chamber of Commerce is a member driven business organization whose principal mission is to advance the business interests of its members through leadership, civic engagement, promotion, support, and advocacy. 

HISTORY:
As early as 1914, area businessmen assembled at various office buildings in downtown Brownsville. The association built its first office in 1927, a beautiful Spanish-style structure on E. Levee Street, adjacent to the Missouri Pacific railroad passenger depot. 

In July 1937, a voluntary association of 39 business people officially registered the nonprofit organization known as the Brownsville Chamber of Commerce (BCOC). According to the first Articles of Incorporation, "the beginning purpose of organizing a Chamber of Commerce was the power to provide and maintain suitable rooms for the conduct of its business, to acquire, preserve, and disseminate valuable business information, and to promote the interest of trade and increase the facilities of commercial transactions." 

In 1966, a new structure was built on E. Elizabeth Street next to the Gateway International Bridge that to this day continues to be the home of the Chamber. Since its inception, the Brownsville Chamber of Commerce has been the community's united front and a catalyst for the improvement of the civic, economic and social welfare of Brownsville and its citizens. The Chamber helped to establish the Charro Days Inc., Sombrero Festival, the Mr. Amigo Association, Leadership Brownsville, Brownsville Crime Stoppers, and Healthy Communities of Brownsville. The Brownsville Chamber also supported the creation of Texas Southmost College, the Port of Brownsville, the Brownsville South Padre Island International Airport, and the Brownsville Economic Development Council. 

In 2021, the Brownsville Chamber of Commerce was recognized for its outstanding marketing and communications at the Texas Chamber of Commerce Executives (TCCE) Communication Excellence Award Program. The Brownsville Chamber of Commerce received first place in digital media for the "Dear Brownsville" COVID-19 commercial, first place in event marketing for the "Brownsville & Beyond" webinar series, and second place in event marketing for division one chambers of commerce throughout the state of Texas with a total annual revenue under $250,000. 

In 2022, the Brownsville Chamber of Commerce was selected by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation to host one of six inaugural National Civics Bee Competition. The Brownsville Civics Bee led the Nation when over 400 local middle school students competed in a first-round essay competition. The National Civics Bee promoted greater civics knowledge and civic participation across the country, and energized the community with a celebration of civic pride. 
 

A nonprofit, 501(c)6 organization primarily funded by member dues, the Brownsville Chamber of Commerce is the community's leading advocate for business, with a primary objective to create a climate of growth and success in our community.
