The Lubbock Chamber of Commerce is celebrating Texas Chamber of Commerce Week, October 15-19. Eddie McBride from the Lubbock Chamber joined Chad Hasty in the KFYO studio on Wednesday to talk about the important role that Chambers of Commerce play the development and promotion of communities and their businesses throughout the nation and the state of Texas.

McBride said,

Thanks to Governor Abbott for recognizing the almost four hundred chambers across the state of Texas. It's to recognize obviously the role of chambers of commerce they have in all of our local communities across the state of Texas.

McBride also shared details of a public reception being held at Texas Tech to honor Robert and Terri Duncan.
