Event Description:

TCCE Annual Conference 2013
Real Chambers. Real Challenges. Real Solutions.

Chamber professionals and the organizations they serve live in a real world and daily face real challenges.  Challenges of maintaining relevance, creating value, demonstrating value, remaining on the cutting edge of technology and the list goes on.  These challenges often come amidst pressures to do more with less, complex relationship management with staff, elected officials, community and members in general.  Then there is the money; earning it, growing it, and managing it to sustain and grow the organization. 

The Texas Chamber of Commerce Executives and conference host the Amarillo Chamber invite you to join colleagues from around the state as REAL chambers tackle REAL challenges with REAL solutions  in “The REAL Texas”.  

One of the last places on earth where the Old West meets the modern reality, Amarillo and the surrounding panhandle area are a unique blend of two American eras.  Dwelling together are working ranches that remain virtually unchanged in day-to-day operations from the late nineteenth century and a vibrant twenty-first century economy that includes manufacturing, petrochemicals, medicine, and more.  This unique jewel of the Panhandle is a treat for all who visit.  Providing leadership for the modern west, it is said when you step into Amarillo you “Step Into The Real Texas”.


The TCCE Annual Conference and Trade Show is the premier event of the year for chamber professionals of every position and experience level.  In this conference you will:

  • Experience keynote presentations offering motivation and insights on  how to increase your effectiveness as a professional, staff specialist and a leader
  • Participate in breakout sessions on how to improve membership, marketing, events and address the challenges of the day
  • Learn through in-depth sessions how to meet demands for today and the future


Experience REAL chances to learn and grow through:  

  • Extended networking times that offer great idea exchange in informal settings
  • Chamber Partners Exhibit Hall/Trade Show with excellent companies offering  products and services that can help your chamber operate more effectively, and generate revenue
  • …And much more!

And then there is the REAL fun.  Discover times of networking with peers and having good old-fashioned fun including:

  • The annual TCCE Golf Tournament at Comanche Trail Golf Complex
  • A Taste of Amarillo Chairman’s Reception and Live Auction
  • Opening night dinner and viewing of The Texas Show

Finally, experience the TCCE Annual Awards ceremonies where we will honor chamber professionals for excellence in their work, contributions to the profession and lifetime achievements. 

This is sure to be THE event of the year you will not want to miss!
