The Lufkin/Angelina County Chamber of Commerce is seeking information on your business and if it was impacted by the asphalt application on east Loop 287 in August 2017. It is our hope that the results of this survey will urge TxDOT to utilize their existing resources to prioritize the cleanup on roadways and businesses to maintain an acceptable appearance of our community.

Join the Lufkin/Angelina County Chamber of Commerce for a time of personal and professional growth at the Women’s Networking Luncheon. Dorothy Gibbons, CEO & Co-Founder of The Rose, will be speaking about “Women Taking Charge: Health or Wealth or Personal Time- It’s your Life!”. As a CEO, wife, author, mother, yoga instructor, advocate, speaker and lecturer at the Jung Center, her labels are many and like most women she juggles the demands of a professional, public and personal life, seldom finding a true balance. Dorothy will give thoughtful and practical applications for taking charge of your life.

I have been a member of The Chamber for over 35 years. I have served on the Board and served on several functioning committees.

I am pleased to call The Angelina/Lufkin Chamber my Chamber of choice.
Jerry Johnson
President and CEO, Brookshire Brothers
As a home-grown company, Brookshire Brothers believes in supporting The Chamber and the initiatives that benefit the business and cultural climate of Angelina County. We are proud to be the presenting sponsor of the Texas State Forest Festival and the Angelina County Fair as well as a host for First Friday, a supporter of the Expo Party and a half dozen other Chamber events. Leadership Lufkin has equipped a number of our employee-owners to take their place as leaders at work and in the community. On a personal level, serving on The Chamber Board has shown me how progressive our community is and how fortunate we are to have volunteers who want to create jobs, support local business and grow the economy for everyone.
Codie Jenkins
Vice President of Commercial Lending, Southside Bank
As a locally owned bank with its roots dating back to Diboll in 1953, Southside Bank (previously known as First Bank & Trust East Texas) has 16 locations in 12 East Texas cities. We support the Chamber's efforts to improve the quality of life and business environment of Angelina County.

Angelina County has a history of generosity and deep care for one another, and the Chamber continues those efforts through its many projects that bring the community together to grow and prosper.
Sharon Shaw
The Lufkin/Angelina County Chamber continues to be a great partner to public health in helping us educate businesses in our community about evolving issues surrounding employee and community health. From topics such as Business Infection Control Practices, to Pandemic Flu, and Ebola readiness. Strong partnerships create a healthier and safer community ! The Health District has committed to select an employee each year, for the past 15 years, to participate in the Leadership Lufkin Program. Leadership Lufkin provides employers an opportunity to immerse their employee in the rich culture, diversity, and robust community spirit that Lufkin is. The experience truly enriches your business!
Chris Johnson
GVCS Inc., dba Whataburger
Growing up in Lufkin, and then returning to raise my family I never fully understood to purpose and functions of a local Chamber. It was quickly recommended to me by community leaders the value and importance of the Leadership Lufkin Program. It is during this amazing experience I learned the value and how strong of a local Chamber that we have. It has been a privilege to work and serve as a Chamber Board member and what an asset it brings to the community that we all love!
