Dr. Ann Thompson of Thompson Dentistry is excited to become a proud local member of the Westlake Chamber of Commerce. The Westlake Chamber, which got its humble beginnings as the Eanes Business & Professional Association in the late 1980s, now has 250+ members committed to driving growth for local businesses in the community of Austin’s Westlake.
What does a Chamber of Commerce actually do? Susan Difani, the current Administrative Director of the Westlake Chamber of Commerce, paraphrases the definition of a Chamber in a Westlake Picayune article entitled Chambers of commerce have come a long way.
An interconnected group of businesses and professionals working together to increase local commerce and serve their communities more effectively than can be done individually.
The Westlake Chamber of Commerce holds several events each month for both members and non-members, anywhere from business builder breakfast networking and local business ribbon cutting ceremonies, to luncheons and happy hours.
Austin Westlake Chamber of Commerce Dentist in the Community
As a Westlake Chamber of Commerce Dentist, Dr. Thompson looks forward to the Second Annual Touch-a-Truck Event on Saturday, November 3, 2013, where Thompson Dentistry will join other sponsors in a community event that gives children the opportunity to touch over 20 vehicles, including a fire truck! Touch-a-Truck will be held at Valley View Elementary School at 1201 S Capital of Texas Highway (aka Highway 360). Proceeds of the Touch-a-Truck Event will benefit the Austin Children’s Shelter, a local Austin organization focused on the provision of residential and non-residential services to children, youth, and families recovering from abuse and neglect.
