Who Can Join the Corpus Christi Black Chamber of Commerce?

In 1943, the Corpus Christi Black Chamber of Commerce was established primarily to assist African Americans and minorities in establishing, promoting, and helping to grow their businesses in Corpus Christi and the Coastal Bend. Throughout the years, we have opened our doors to many others. Any person, association, corporation, partnership, or organization expressing an interest in joining the Black Chamber, and who will uphold the Purpose and Mission of the Black Chamber shall be eligible for membership in the Black Chamber.


There are 2 Classes of Membership:
