Meet the newest member of our 70th Anniversary Platinum Gala Team, Jennifer Tom, with Premier Events and Décor. Jennifer, CEO, and Owner of the events planning service has been in business for eight years. She is an expert wedding and events planner and prides herself on her attention to detail and delivering extraordinary customer service.

Jennifer is helping the Chamber unpack years of memorabilia to have on display at the 70th Anniversary Platinum Gala on November 2, 2019, 6-10pm at The Citadel, located at 12130 Kirby Drive, Houston, Texas, 77045.

As a new member of the team and the Chamber, Jennifer was treated to a history lesson. The Houston Metropolitan Chamber was established in Bellaire on August 12, 1949, as the Bellaire Chamber, later renamed to the Greater Southwest Houston Chamber. Currently, the Houston Metropolitan Chamber serves small business, start-ups, and other non-profits, offering a premier platform for visibility.

Dr. Connie Mariano, the White House Doctor to Presidents H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, will be our featured speaker. Her talk “11 Presidential Secrets to Longevity” will be packed with longevity tips, insider information and inspiration gained by hearing her amazing journey from the Philippines to the White House.

The Chamber will also be honoring 6 business sectors that have helped shape Houston into the amazing can-do community we all share.
