Chamber of Commerce
The Addison Chamber of Commerce and Industry was renamed in 2003, previously having been called the Addison Association of Industry and Commerce. The organization was founded in 1991, merging the former Chamber of Commerce with members of the industrial community.
The Chamber works toward retaining and developing business in the community of Addison, while representing business to local, county, state and national governmental agencies.
