It is now public knowledge that the Chase Bank building on 19th Street, where the Chamber Office is located, is up for sale and most likely will be fully changed, renovated, or replaced by its new owner. This of course means that our office will be relocating sometime in the next year and a half.
This has been our home since the Chamber was founded, courtesy of our founder Jack Fields and then later the generosity of Chase Bank. The furniture is all different, the offices have all swapped around, and there are a few coats of different colored paint on the walls, but this is the same place where your Chamber staff – past and present – has walked in each morning to make the Greater Heights a better place for residents and businesses.
Change can be hard, but always in change opportunity can be found. And that is what is before us. The opportunity to make a statement that the Greater Heights is not just the Houston Heights alone, perhaps by moving outside of its footprint. The opportunity to put a fresh face on a well storied and worthwhile organization. Wherever we end up and however we get there one thing will not change: this fantastic organization is here to help you, your neighbor, and your community thrive.
Onward to the future,
Your Chamber President
