Why it Matters

A qualified, well-educated workforce is critical to the future of our business community. Therefore, the Midland Chamber of Commerce focuses on efforts to improve and support our local educational entities as part of our Strategic Plan.

We engage in this endeavor through our Board of Directors, our Education Committee and our staff. Key areas of focus include (but are not limited to):

  • Classroom/Campus need fulfillment through Midland ISD's "Partners in Education" program. The Education Committee members serve as liaisons for the Chamber, schools, and business partners
  • Advocacy - The Chamber will work with our local schools to seek legislation that improves formula funding and accountability/testing standards


​It is our desire to serve as a conduit through which local businesses can connect with and support local educational programs, fulfill classroom needs and serve as a resource for providing the best possible educational foundation for tomorrow's business leaders.
