2020 Chair of the Board

Each month the Chamber’s Chair of the Board writes a “From the Chair” guest article for the Business Section of the Tuesday edition of the New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung. This is a great opportunity to get an inside look at what the Chamber leadership is working on and the issues that are important to our Board of Directors. Look for the article to be published on the second Tuesday of every month or check back here for the monthly articles.
