Chambers of Commerce across Southeast Texas have worked months to coordinate the trip most business leaders look forward to every two years, Golden Triangle Days in Austin. Golden Triangle Days in Austin is a three day long event of area delegates who gather at the capitol to build relationships between Southeast Texas’ businesses as well as state officials, agency directors and their staff members. Meetings with state agency department heads and other officials provide a forum for our delegation to provide information and requests to those in Austin, asking for their support or assistance.

“With all the changes we are experiencing in today’s world, I feel bringing a large delegation from the Golden Triangle will give us a strong voice,” says Ida Schossow, President of the Greater Orange Area Chamber of Commerce.

Delegates are urged to attend every meeting and event during the legislative trip, as every aspect of the event encompasses a valuable part of the process. This is a tremendous opportunity to better understand the way the business of our state is handled and to make an impact on the benefits to our area.

During time between group meetings and events, delegates are encouraged to visit the offices of Senators and Representatives from across the state in order to introduce themselves to them or their key staff members.

The Golden Triangle Days in Austin 2013 agenda includes visits from local legislators, commission heads and presentation of resolutions. Delegates will also have an evening of fun with performances from Blue Broussard and Josh Abbott Band.
