Another Chamber of Commerce, Different Objective

The Tyler Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce has come back from a 2-year hiatus. The organization's many objectives include promoting the growth and development of minority businesses in Tyler. At its open house earlier this evening, officials say they want to set their sights on re-establishing a particular side of town.

"We want to help promote north Tyler and maybe get it received in a better light than it is right now. We truly need economic development in the north part of town," says JoAne Hampton, President of the Metropolitan Chamber.

The Tyler Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce is not a competitor with the Tyler Chamber of Commerce. In fact, it's receiving the Tyler Chamber's full support to work with under-utilized businesses.
