TEXAS ASSOCIATION OF BUSINESS AND CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE

Mark F. Odintz

TEXAS ASSOCIATION OF BUSINESS AND CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE. In 1995 the Texas Association of Business and the Texas Chamber of Commerce, the two largest employer organizations in the state, merged to form the Texas Association of Business and Chambers of Commerce. The Texas Association of Business traces its lineage back to the Texas State Manufacturers Association, founded in 1922. The Texas Chamber of Commerce (see CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE) was created in 1988 when the various regional chambers of commerce merged. The TABCC is headquartered in Austin. The organization tracks legislation relating to business, publishes the monthly Texas Business Report, offers seminars on workplace issues, promotes voter education, provides networking opportunities for business leaders at various levels, and offers members access to a number of insurance programs. In 2003 Bill Hammond served as the president and CEO of the organization.
