About Us & Our Directors


Joe Helmberger, 2018 Board President

Our Chamber of Commerce Board President, is at the helm this year and we are looking forward to a great 2018 at the Chamber.  He has served in many capacities as an officer and a dedicated member of the Chamber of Commerce for over 30 years.

Our board members ensure that the Farmersville Chamber fulfills the mission statement, Programs of Work and established goals.   They act as advisers overseeing the finances, programs and missions, and setting policy’s to best implement this vision.

Join the Farmersville Chamber of Commerce and see what’s possible when our board members, our business partners {members} and volunteers work together to create the best possible environment for successful programs and events. Our mission is to collectively work with our Chamber partners, other area businesses, leaders, churches and schools to create opportunities for commerce. The more commerce…. the better business atmosphere there is for anyone with a business passion to thrive.

We want to be a strong influence in bringing our leaders together to bring out the best in our community, to see good in everyone and make decisions that can keep Farmersville united.

If you have any ideas, questions or concerns please feel free to contact one of our Board Members.

The MI Event Committee is strong and growing!

We invite all businesses to get involved in our Chamber Events.  This will help you to be seen, heard and referred –it’s the best way to be seen, heard and referred. 

Th MI Event Committee (Chamber – Member Initiated) was formed in February 2017 to bring businesses together from ALL the surrounding communities. Calls were coming into the Chamber office from businesses wanting more events and business opportunities, not just events on the square.  The committee started by defining the marketing needs and the most effective way to promote business.  It’s about how can we draw in tourists and be more visible in north Dallas and southern Oklahoma. The MI Events started with the Community Shed Sale, then the Car Show & Music Fest in June of 2017  with Scare On The Square scheduled that same year October.  

  • Every event has been successful.
  • Every event brought commerce, tourists and better ideas for future events.
  • Every event provided business networking opportunities.
  • Every event helped promote Chamber and non-Chamber businesses.

It was a great start up in 2017 and we think you can expect more events, better events and bigger events in 2018–stay tuned.

We are always working on good opportunities to promote our community, so if you have an idea, or want to be a part of our events please let us know.  This is “business building” for the future!

If you are a Chamber Member, then you can be a part of our MI Events Committee.  For more information please contact one of our business leaders listed below:
