Since 1965, the Newton Chamber of Commerce has been active in promoting Newton and Newton County to residents, visitors and potential families and businesses that may wish to relocate.

Description: Description: C:\Users\GAIL\Documents\My Web Sites\NCOC Website\chamber_of_commerce\images\The Welcome Center Depot[1].JPG  The Newton Chamber of Commerce, now located in the Newton Economic Development Corporation's Welcome Center Depot, located at 201 West Court next to the Caney Creek Park, has taken an aggressive position to assist our community in economic development programs.
 The Chamber's Economic Development Committee, an association of local business, civic and government leaders, has been instrumental in developing this Website, planning and initiating the Newton County Courthouse Square Renovation Program and receiving a sizeable Texas Infrastructure Program grant to upgrade fiber optic communications for marketing and education.

The Chamber is entirely volunteer-driven with no paid staff, however, our past accomplishments and present programs remain a benchmark for other Chambers in the East Texas Area. Our volunteers are dedicated to promoting our resources and are proud to be residents of Newton County, home of
"Clean Air - Fresh Water - Friendly People!"

A SPECIAL THANKS to all the numerous dedicated volunteers for  the long hours of research, layout & design work and travel necessary to make this Website a reality!
