The Waller Area Chamber of Commerce does not endorse any political candidate running for any elections - local, state or federal. We do have active Political Officials that are Individual members AND we have currently campaigning Candidates that have joined as Members to help promote their campaign. Occasionally we will forward posts on our Facebook page giving meet and greet information but those are NOT endorsements or recommendations.
We would like to offer you a warm Waller welcome!
The Waller area encompasses the Waller Independent School District and covers over 320 square miles. Most visitors don't know, but the area includes the communities of Waller, Hockley, Fields Store, Rosehill, and Pine Island. This geographically diverse area extends into both Harris and Waller counties.
The City of Waller is located about 45 miles west of Houston just down US Hwy 290. About half of the town is in Harris County and the other in Waller County. Out here small town charm is still alive in both the area and it's people.
Next time you are on you way to Austin or Bryan / College Station, stop by and have lunch or take a tour of the area.

2020 Waller Area Chamber of Commerce Scholarship Winners Announced
The Waller Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased and excited to announce the 2020 Waller Area Chamber of Commerce Scholarship winners. We received many outstanding applications and equally exceptional recommendations making the selection process very competitive. Due to the large amount of applications and in an effort to be non-biased and show no favoritism, the WACC Board formed a committee of five to score each scholarship application. The Selection Committee was comprised of two active educators from Cy-Fair, one retired teacher from Katy, one retired teacher from Tomball and one member from the Waller City Council. Each committee member was asked to judge items such as; letter of recommendation, essay ideas, essay organization and grammar, resume, application presentation and overall impression. They said they were very impressed with this year's applicants.
