Dallas Regional Chamber

Annual Meeting

Thank you to all who joined us for the Dallas Regional Chamber’s 2018 Annual Meeting presented by AT&T on January 18 at the Hilton Anatole Dallas.

We were thrilled to host a DRC-record crowd of more than 1,500 for an update on our strategic plan, “Building Tomorrow Together,” and to hear a discussion on “Business. Football. Life.” with Dallas Cowboys legends Emmitt Smith, Roger Staubach and Charlotte Jones Anderson. We want to say thanks once again to our distinguished panel, and to Brad Sham, the voice of the Dallas Cowboys, and Tracy Merzi, publisher of the Dallas Business Journal, for moderating the discussion.
