I Love My Chamber!
Our Member Testimonials
"I am very impressed with the professionalism and positive outlook that both the Chamber Staff and its Members possess. I immediately noticed that Chamber Members are very excited about their involvement and being part of a growing community, and demonstrate the energy that only successful organizations and prosperous communities have.
Keep up the great work!”

I have been a part of or attended many Chamber of Commerce events over the years as a business owner and as an individual. The Schertz Chamber of Commerce organization ranks among the best, in my opinion, for enthusiasm, organization and a pro business atmosphere. Your hospitality is great and I really appreciate the creative ideas for helping new members acquaint themselves with other area businesses.

I want to thank you for all the assistance you have provided me since I joined the Schertz Chamber of Commerce. The business referrals you provided me, made it easy to connect with some very helpful people that are also fellow Chamber Members.
Thanks for your direction.

At a Chamber mixer, I won a car wash coupon from Clear Blue Car Wash. When the owner found out I was with the Schertz Area Senior Center, he offered us a large number of coupons to sell as fund raiser for the Senior Center. The end result, because of the Chamber mixer, and because of the generosity of Clear Blue car Wash, we raised over $800! The Chamber's networks really do work!

"Valuable and Informative Chamber Luncheon Speakers! Thank you so much for having Special Agent Joe Martinez of U.S. Customs & Immigration speak at the Schertz Chamber Luncheon. He was so very helpful to me. I learned valuable information from him that will help me do my job more efficiently.
Great choice of speakers!"

"My name is Robert Crouch and I own my own pest control business ( RC Pest Control ).
I recently attended the Schertz Shootout, which is a speed networking event for businesses. When I first heard about it, I wasn't sure I'd attend. Up until that very afternoon, I decided I wasn't going. I changed my mind at the last minute and went anyway. To my surprise, it turned out to be a lot of fun. Not only that, but I came away with a few good contacts and some new business. In fact that new business came from Jan Haynie, the Vice President and Marketing Manager at Broadway Bank here in Schertz. She not only signed up for service on her home, but for two other homes as well. It just goes to show that you never know what can come from any networking event. Thanks to SCOC, my business is heading in the right direction."

"KDJ Insurance Agency recently posted job openings on the employment option on the Schertz Chamber website. As a result, hired two new team members, who found the posting there! . So, the SCOC is not only a Marketing Department, but the HR Department that small businesses need to move them forward. Who needs newspaper ad, or monster.com? We have the Schertz Chamber of Commerce."

Less than a year ago I launched MyCommunityCoupon.com in the Schertz/Cibolo area.
After attending numerous networking events I began to see something that intrigued me. At each of these events I noticed certain business owners “stood out”. I began to note many of the same qualities in these people. They were confident, they seemed to know everybody & it appeared that they were very successful business owners.
I’ve always heard that success leaves clues so I put on my detective hat (also known as Google) and went to work. What I found was that each of those “stand out” people were members of Schertz Chamber of Commerce. You don’t have to be a detective to know, that’s a big CLUE!
“Surround yourself with successful people”. We’ve all heard it and that’s exactly what I did when I joined the Chamber. I’m not sure if every Chamber member has reached all of their business goals but I am sure that if they remain active in this Chamber & use the benefits offered, they will be. Joining the Chamber is the single most important business decision I made. We have enjoyed increased business as well as better quality of business.
I once thought that Chamber members were business owners that already had huge success in their businesses, I was wrong. The Chamber is for anyone with the desire to succeed, that wants to be involved with their community and understands the importance of good relationships within that community.
I was told it was expensive to be a Chamber member so I wondered if I could afford it. I soon learned that I had shoes that cost more than membership! Once I joined it’s clear that the value I’m receiving is far greater than the cost to join.
Growing a business is hard work. The best thing any business owner (new or established) can do is join the Chamber and let Maggie & the membership help you grow. In my opinion- you can’t afford not to.
