The primary goal of the Pampa Chamber of Commerce is to promote the area's business. We provide an online business directory, host networking opportunities, offer discounts on health insurance, and give personal referrals for Chamber members. New members have the option to be "Goldcoated" -- a ribbon cutting hosted by the Chamber's ambassadors, commonly called the "Goldcoats" in reference to their distinctive attire.
"I had no idea!" is a phrase often uttered by first-time visitors and others who take the time to really see the area. Outdoor art, beautiful parks, recreational venues, historical sites, unique museums, scenic drives, impressive architecture, and entertaining events are part of the experience of the eastern Texas panhandle, centered in Pampa.
Oil and gas production is the foundation of the area’s economy, supporting international, national, and local businesses. Manufacturing and agriculture are also well-represented. Pampa has a strong retail and service industry base with home-grown merchants up to “big box” retailers. Educational institutions, healthcare facilities, and recreational venues all combine to make Pampa a great place to live and work.
