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 Lancaster 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. During election cycles, we also host a candidates forum(s) for the community and businesses, 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.
