TCLM Chamber Earns Four Star Accreditation

The Texas City-La Marque Chamber is four-star accredited!

The Accreditation Program defines standards of excellence in Chamber planning and performance. It also measures achievement while recognizing and encouraging board members and staff who meet high standards of operation and contribute effectively to the good of the Chamber and community.
