Who is the Sanger Area Chamber of Commerce?
The Sanger Area Chamber of Commerce (SACC) was established to enhance and strengthen the business community by promoting a thriving business environment and
supporting all of
the economic, commercial
welfare of the
entire Sanger area
working partnership, we are dedicated to serving as a catalyst in uniting the voices of our members and our community through encouraging leadership and continuity throughout the Sanger area with a prosperous future in mind.
Sanger’s business culture is fruitful and unique but while it is growing substantially, it still maintains that “small town feel”. Our businesses are definitely a part of our urbanity and our lives. They are SACC’s friends and neighbors.
SACC knows what you need such
as help in growing your business, making money and meeting the challenges of the ever-changing economic climate. We have the following definitive goals and are
putting plans in place to achieve them.
• To help stimulate growth of new and established businesses by hosting community events
• To promote active participation from the entire membership
•To establish greater positive communication with the City of Sanger, Sanger ISD, and civic organizations in the community
• To enhance the Tourism Center within the Chamber and to continue to improve outreach for the Sanger area

• To improve communication with all members
• To establish and promote opportunities for members to connect with one another through networking events
As stated by the Sanger Area Chamber of Commerce’s currently Treasurer - The Chamber serves as a neutral pivot point for business owners and professionals to come together to network. They provide the platforms and opportunities for members to execute. Ture networking is not about making you instantly rich and successful. Ture Networking is turning those business relationships into friendships that in turn provide you business. Friends and business with those they TRUST, building trust takes time and time means you have made a continual effort. In a time that we are so immune to doing business through the internet, phone calls and text; it is even MORE important that we come together FACE TO FACE and have genuine conversations. Times may have changed, marketing may have changed, but building an authentic connection has not and that is what the Chamber can and does offer if you take advantage of the platforms in which they provide.v
