About Us

The Robstown Area Development Commission is the result of a consolidation of the Robstown Chamber of Commerce and the Robstown Economic Development Commission in October of 1995. The organization is a public/private partnership, set up as a 501 (c) (6) non-profit corporation, which exists to promote economic growth and stability for the City of Robstown and adjacent areas of Nueces County.

The RADC Board of Directors is made up of five Public Directors and fourteen Directors elected by the General Membership for three-year terms. The organization is responsible for economic development activities, tourism information, chamber of commerce functions, and special events in the Robstown area.

The RADC has five standing committees which include: Economic and Community Development, Special Events and Tourism, Membership Services and Programs, Financial Development, and Legislative Affairs.

Economic - Community Development Committee:

The Economic - Community Development Committee works to attract new businesses and jobs to the area; assists in working with development prospects; and maintains a business retention and expansion program. In addition, the Economic Development Committee will form sub-committee to address specific economic development issues, including utilities and telecommunications, tax abatement programs.

Special Events and Tourism Committee:
The Special Events and Tourism Committee will strive to stimulate the economy of the Robstown area through tourism and event promotion. Specifically, the Special Events and Tourism Committee will work to promote the RMB Fairgrounds and the events it hosts, encourage patronage of local motels and restaurants, and support general public events which will bring people to the Robstown area. This committee will oversee the handling of tourism information requests, promotional materials, and maps for the area. The committee may also establish a master community calendar of events.

Membership Services and Programs Committee:
The Membership Services and Programs Committee is responsible for membership development and retention, special membership events sponsored by the RADC, ribbon cuttings to welcome new businesses, and other functions typically provided by the Chamber of Commerce. In addition, the Membership Services and Programs Committee shall develop activities to enable members to make business contacts on a regular basis; explore ways to promote the sales and/or services of RADC members; maintain personal contact with members; and may establish a leadership program.

Legislative Affairs Committee:
The Legislative Affairs Committee is responsible for coordinating with local, county, state and federal governments; for securing grants for the community; and for working with transportation and infrastructure issues. In addition, this committee will work to establish and promote a cooperative spirit among the public and private sectors. In its function as a liaison between government officials and the Robstown community, the Legislative Affairs Committee will increase the political awareness level of RADC members and will work to create a better business climate in Robstown and the surrounding area.
