Education

The Greater Mission Chamber of Commerce offers workshops and seminars in collaboration with the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, South Texas College. These efforts are designed to share knowledge about the latest trends in the professional world. Chamber members who are experts in their fields are invited to participate during these events. Topics are selected each year based on emerging trends and will focus on subjects related to professional and personal growth.
