It’s hard to imagine New Braunfels without a chamber of commerce. In fact, since its inception in 1919, not a single year goes by where the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce has not influenced the growth, and quality of life, of this unique community. It all began on a hot afternoon in the old city hall when John Holm held a meeting between businessman and residents. It was there that they established an organization to promote the commercial resources of the city, as well as a mechanism to meet future needs. One hundred years on and the founding vision is stronger than ever.
