Welcome to the Greater Heights Area Chamber of Commerce.

The Greater Heights Area Chamber of Commerce (GHACC) is a member-focused organization through which members can effectively develop their business and themselves. Since its founding in 1988, the hallmark of the Chamber has, and continues to be: “People do business with people they know, like, and trust.” Relationships developed in the Chamber become part of one’s business infrastructure. New friends can be found in the Chamber and some of those friendships will last a lifetime. Members can learn how to grow their markets, supply their business, mentor associates or even find a special mentor. GHACC works diligently to provide benefit to all members, be they new, or long-term.

This growing Chamber provides a forum into which its members’ businesses can fit together in an atmosphere of mutual benefit. Active participation provides multiple benefits including access to the entrepreneurs and management of business and organizations with differing viewpoints and methods that work. An abundance of activities provide networking occasions to create new business opportunities, obtain business referrals, join committees, have fun and enjoy a camaraderie unique to Heights Chamber members.

Just as the “Heights” is known for its uniqueness and historical Houston significance, the GHACC blends businesses, promotes “Buy Local First,” and has often been described as a “not so well kept secret for successfully serving its members.”


Here’s why I Sponsor a Chamber Event!

“One of the benefits of being a part of the Heights Chamber is the opportunity to promote and highlight my business in a cost-effective way to fellow members. I have found that sponsoring an event brings with it an additional emphasis on my business and recognition of me and my services. I know that members do business with fellow members and getting them to know me and my capabilities better, leads to future business and referrals.”

Here’s why Chamber Networking brings me Business and Referrals!

“During my 15+ years as a member, I have realized a tremendous level of new business from my fellow members and received referrals that led to new upcoming business. Coming to Chamber events enables me to effectively network, achieve recognition of my tree and landscape services and plant seeds for future business. During the same time, I have purchased numerous products and services from fellow members, and given referrals in kind. My best advice for Chamber success is to be seen, get involved and you will earn the rewards of your membership in many ways.”

Member Spotlight

Hector Castellanos

This month we feature Hector Castellanos with Allegiance Bank.  Hector was born in Guatemala City, Guatemala.  He spent his younger years growing up in Thousand Oaks, California next to the Dallas Cowboys training camp in Moorpark at the time.  His high school years took place in Arvada, Colorado, a small suburb west of Denver.

Hector is a big, no make that a huge sports fan whether playing or watching.  His High School Powerlifting team took first place, 3 years in a row, from 1995-1997 at the AAU Junior Olympics.  He personally took first place in the 1995 and 1997 for his weight class and 4th place in 1996.

Hector attended Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado, where his accomplishments included earning a B.S. in Psychology, a B.A. in Sociology with a concentration in Criminology and a minor in Political Science.  Hector moved to Houston in September of 2002 and began his banking career with Wells Fargo as a Personal Banker in 2004.

In 2005, he moved over to Chase Bank and worked out of the Downtown Office in the old Texas Commerce building.  He moved to the Heights location as a Relationship Manager in 2011 and worked there until October 2017.  He recently joined the Allegiance Bank team in the Heights Office in October of 2017 as a Commercial Lender.  Hector recently commented that it has been a very rewarding experience being a part of the Allegiance Bank team.

He joined the Chamber in 2011 and has become an active member, served on numerous committees as well as being a member of the Chamber Board. The Castellanos family includes wife Julia, their beautiful 2-year old daughter Mackenzie and their 9-year old dog, Luna.  Building friendships and taking on tough projects is easy for Hector. His engaging personality has allowed him to stand out in his career and as a valued Chamber member and volunteer. Congratulations Hector, we greatly respect you and your many accomplishments.

The Chamber member profiled every month is drawn from the business cards of those attending the Breakfast Connection or Noontime Networking.
