President’s Weekly Update: July 14

July 14, 2021


Members of the San Angelo Chamber of Commerce:

We hope you are having a great week.  Our July Blue and Gold Luncheon was outstanding, and we thank President Hawkins and the ASU team for a great event.  Angelo State University continues to bring excellence to their students and to our community.  The average Angelo State student brings over $53,000 of economic benefit to our community during their 4-year academic experience in San Angelo.  San Angelo truly loves Angelo State!    Friday is Angelo State Day in San Angelo.  We encourage everyone to display your Angelo State flags proudly in your businesses, especially on Friday.  If you don’t have an ASU flag, stop by the Chamber and get one at for free!

We want to give a shout out to an organization that is perhaps little known but very impactful to our city.  Keep San Angelo Beautiful or KSAB is a city supported, not for profit organization that serves our community through the implementation of beautification projects, area clean ups and more.  Recent efforts have removed hazardous waste and thousands of discarded tires from our community.  The organization rallies volunteers from Goodfellow Airforce Base, the Chamber of Commerce, Angelo State University and the community at large to implement their wide-ranging projects.   We encourage everyone to pitch in to Keep San Angelo Beautiful.   Like, follow & share “Keep San Angelo Beautiful’s” Facebook page for up-to-date  information on upcoming events and how to get involved or contact Keep San Angelo Beautiful at (325) 486-3771 for more information.

The application process for the 20 under 40 awards program is underway and referrals are continuing to come in.  We have many great community members in the under 40 crowd so encourage everyone to participate.   Nomination forms are available on the Chamber website or at the chamber. The awards banquet will be in October and sponsorship opportunities are available.

We are also taking applications for the next Leadership San Angelo Class.  Leadership San Angelo is a year long program that provides class members with an in depth understanding of the organizations and institutions of our community.   Leadership San Angelo graduates also join an alumni association of hundreds of past grads.   If you are interested in joining this elite group, apply today!  Applications are available on

Additionally, registration is open and sponsorship opportunities are still available for the West Texas Legislative Summit. Our 2021 theme is appropriately “Beyond Covid”.   The West Texas Legislative Summit is an event that brings together hundreds of elected officials and business professionals from across West Texas.   This year’s topics will include critical infrastructure, education, agriculture and trade, transportation, pipelines and ports.  The dates for this year’s summit are August 3 and 4.   Find out more at

Finally, we have a great calendar of activities planned so visit our new and improved website at often as we are continually providing updates. On behalf of our incredible chamber staff and board of directors we thank you for your membership and contribution to the success of our community.   Have a great week!
