The Staff PA L E S T I N E C H A M B E R.O RG The Chamber has its finger on the pulse of the community and is able to identify and target issues of importance to businesses. Businesses of all sizes have a strong voice and powerful impact on important community issues. We know that by helping businesses to succeed, the community will grow and prosper and be an even better place to live and work. We are not a department of the city, county, state or federal government. We are a private, not-for-profit 501(c) 6 voluntary organization that unites businesses and business people. We operate on membership dues and dollars generated from business-related events. An elected ten member board of directors representing your views as an investor/partner governs the Chamber. We serve over 450 businesses, people and professionals who seek to improve and maintain the economic well being and quality of life in our community. For information regarding membership and our community or being an ambassador, please contact us at 903-729-6066 or visit www.palestinechamber.org. 63 Michele Merryman Bell Executive Director Stephanie Wright Member Services Coordinator Meagan Miller Financial Administrator
