Board holds planning session

Last week the chamber board of directors held their annual planning session to help engage and establish key objectives and opportunities for the upcoming fiscal year.

“The planning session is a good start for our new board of directors and staff to come together and get ready for a new year,” chamber president Letty Gonzalez said. “This also draws engagement and helps identify new strategies, programs, workshops and opportunities to achieve our mission.”

The Edinburg Chamber of Commerce will say farewell to the 2016-17 board chairman Jacob De Leon at an installation banquet Oct. 25.
