President of the Board

Veronica Gonzales

Vice President of Governmental and Community Relations

The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley


I am humbled and excited to be selected to lead this great organization that has been the voice for Edinburg businesses since 1925.

First, I want to thank you for your continued support of the Edinburg Chamber of Commerce. We understand the challenges the entire business community is facing right now.
It seems like it’s been years that we’ve been social distancing, wearing masks. We’ve processed so much in so little time.

For the past few years, I have had the opportunity to work with a great group of leaders who strive to bring our Chamber to its highest level to support and advance commerce. Although this digital version of life seems very different, our goal is still much the same to help our members and the community prosper. We take that responsibility seriously and are committed to seeing that the best interest of our businesses is at the forefront of all decisions. 

As your new President, I am committed to fulfilling the chamber’s mission to ensure the business community receives the resources it needs to be successful. This approach will be achieved through strong leadership, dedication and collaboration. I assure you I am eager to work alongside our chamber board, staff and community partners to help Edinburg grow and thrive.

 As you work toward building your business even stronger, just know the Edinburg Chamber of Commerce will be here for you every step of the way. We ask you to join our efforts and help support our mission. We are in a time of uncertainty and change, but together we will come out stronger.
