The Philippine American Chamber of Commerce of Texas has its roots in the former PACC North Texas, which was incorporated in June of 1994. It was an active organization with an influential leadership team that provided services to its members in the Greater Dallas area.
In May 2008, it begun to expand its reach when former members of PACC Houston joined its forces, and PACC North Texas was renamed PACC Texas. This historical milestone created the first two regions of our state chamber, Greater Dallas (Dallas / Fort Worth) became Region-1, and Greater Houston became Region-2.
On June 12, 2015, PACC Texas Rio Grande Valley was established as Region-3, and on November 2, 2017, PACC Texas Central (San Antonio / Austin) became another welcome addition as Region-4.
Today, our statewide chamber continues to significantly in membership and in strength. We will continue to gain ground as the needs of our members and the Filipino community in Texas evolves.
To inspire the spirit of entrepreneurship among Filipinos, Filipino-Americans, and their friends, to promote the growth of business and professions, and to be of service to our communities.
