The New Braunfels Blue Coat organization is a special committee organized for the primary purposes of promoting membership in the Chamber, promoting industrial and tourist development, and serving as the official host committee and goodwill representatives of the Chamber. In addition, the Blue Coats may be called upon by the Chair of the Board to assist in other functions and missions of the Chamber when it would be in the best interest of the Chamber and consistent with the purpose of the committee.

How to become a Blue Coat:
To be considered for Blue Coat membership, the candidate must be approved by the Blue Coat membership. Approved candidates are entitled to Blue Coat membership after qualifying.
To qualify as a Blue Coat nominee, a person must be a member in good standing of the Chamber, have served at least two years as a member of the Board of Directors and/or a member of a Chamber committee, attend an orientation session, and earn a minimum of 1,000 points via participation in ribbon cuttings, mixers, new member receptions, member visits, and Operation Thank You. Blue Coat prospects must also refer potential new members until a total of 10 business memberships have been sold from January 1 to December 31 of that same calendar year. If the prospective Blue Coat attains the requirements as noted above, the person will have earned their Blue Coat.
Blue Coat & Senior Blue Coats:
Blue Coats and Senior Blue Coats compete each quarter for the title of Blue Coat of the Quarter or Senior Blue Coat of the Quarter.
These awards are presented to Blue Coats and Senior Blue Coats that attend the most ribbon cuttings, groundbreakings and Chamber events during a three month period.
The difference between a Blue Coat and Senior Blue Coat is that Blue Coats have attendance requirements throughout the year and Senior Blue Coats are exempt.
