Welcome to the Inland Port Area Chamber of Commerce
Located in the City of Lancaster Texas, yet partnering with our fellow City of Hutchinson Texas.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Inland Port Area Chamber of Commerce is to enhance the economic growth of the Atlanta area by focusing on education, promotion and development of the business community, and those areas of the community affecting business.

To support, engage, advocate for and market the Inland Port Area for success

Welcome to the Inland Port Area Chamber of Commerce!


Inland Port Area Chamber of Commerce members are committed to doing business in the City of Lancaster and the Best Southwest Area and providing quality products, merchandise, and services. It is our hope that you will give our members serious consideration when making your buying decisions. When you shop locally, you contribute to the school system, municipal services, and yourself.

The IPA Chamber of Commerce is forging ahead in community and business support. Our Membership Luncheons are informative and educational.  They are held each quarter.  Our monthly Networking Luncheons are held at various locations of our members and are a great opportunity to network in a relaxed setting.  

Each year, the Chamber hosts the annual State of the City address by our Mayor and the State of the Schools address by our Superintendent. We also host a candidates forum(s) for the community and businesses during election cycles, enabling candidates to meet constituents. 

Lancaster is a very unique city in southern Dallas County.  We are proud to enjoy amenities such as the Lancaster Regional Airport, scenic Country View Golf Course, and a 150+ year old historic Town Square. We have the Lancaster Community Park and Recreation Center, along with an excellent public library.

The school system is growing and striving to improve the opportunities available to students. Lancaster also has Cedar Valley College, a community college, as well as UNT-Dallas located in close proximity. These institutions of higher learning have consistently shown a willingness to offer services and support to citizens and businesses in our area.

 The Inland Port Area Chamber of Commerce directors and staff hope that you find our organization and website useful as you make your business connections.
