Attention All Chamber Members…. Membership Directories are being prepared NOW!!!

Chamber Members, we are going to print a little earlier than normal for the 2017 Membership Directory.  We are going to have it ready for distribution the first part of January, so we need you to do a few things…

  • Please go to and click on the membership directory. Please check to make sure that we have the correct information for your business.  We have been trying to check and recheck it, but I’m sure we have overlooked some things.
  • If your membership investment is past due, payment arrangements need to be made prior to

December 23rd.

  • If you find information that needs to be corrected, please call the Chamber at 903-885-6515. If you want to place an ad in the directory, please contact Lee Ann Peugh at Echo Publishing at 903-885-8663.

Would you like to recognize an Outstanding Educator?

Here is your chance…this year the Chamber of Commerce Education Committee wants to allow all Hopkins County Citizens to nominate their candidates for “Outstanding Professional Educator” (Administrator, Counselor, Diagnostician, or Teacher) “Outstanding Para Professional Educator” (Secretary or Aide) and “Outstanding Auxiliary Educator” (Maintenance, Custodial, Transportation, Nurse or Cafeteria). We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to nominate that “special educator” that has had an impact in their lives.  You may pick up a nomination form at the Chamber office at 300 Connally Street and then either fax, e-mail or mail it in, no later than December 31st!  Our fax number is 903-885-6516, our e-mail address is [email protected], and our mailing address is P.O. Box 347, Sulphur Springs, TX 75483.  Don’t miss this opportunity to recognize a special educator!
