Round Rock Chamber of Commerce

At Heritage Office Suites we are so proud that our local Round Rock Chamber of Commerce which has recently been accredited and distinguished among the Top 3% of all Chambers of Commerce in the nation.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C. has conferred Three-Star Accreditation status on the Round Rock Chamber of Commerce & Economic Development Partnership.

Accreditation represents national recognition for the quality of a chamber’s programs, finances, governance, communications, technology, and operations. The self-review process can take six to nine months to complete.

There are 6,936 chambers in the United States, of which 217 are accredited. Accreditation puts the Round Rock Chamber in the top 3% of chambers nationwide.

“Accreditation validates a chamber as having programs that benefit their local economy and community, and advance the principles of free enterprise,” said Raymond Towle, Executive Director of Political Affairs and Federation Relations at the U.S. Chamber.

Round Rock Chamber Chairman John Garrett commented, “The Round Rock Chamber is a highly effective chamber, with active involvement from businesspeople, a strong economic development partnership with the City, and a highly capable professional staff.”

“I am honored to be leading this dynamic organization. The dedicated collaboration of the staff team, Board of Directors and volunteers has made this one of the nation’s leading chambers,” said Doug Kurkul, President & CEO of the Chamber.

The organization is based in Round Rock, Texas, which the U.S. Census Bureau ranks as the second-fastest growing city in the nation, among cities with more than 100,000 residents. The Round Rock Chamber has 840 members and has seen its dues base grow by 20 percent over the past two years.
