Dallas Regional Chamber
100 Years of Excellence
The DRC is, and always has been, a dynamic alliance serving the business interests of DFW. Our rich history dates back to the Board of Trade, established in 1874. The DRC was formed in 1909, when three other Dallas business groups — the Commercial Club, the 150,000 club, and the Freight Bureau — merged with Board of Trade.
The DRC has since evolved into one of the most significant membership-driven organizations of businesses in the United States. Our region’s prosperity today is a direct result of the DRC’s successes during the past century, and today’s initiatives will provide the foundation for the next century’s prosperity.
Over the past 100 years, the DRC has played key leadership roles in the establishment of many important regional assets, and our mission and purpose have stayed the same: Together we will lead the Dallas region to become the most economically prosperous region — and the most desirable place to live and work — in the United States.
