The Robstown Area Development Commission is a non-profit corporation aimed at promoting economic development efforts in the Robstown area. The Commission was formed as a consolidation of the Chamber of Commerce and the Robstown Economic Development Commission.

The RADC is governed by a Board of Directors, consisting of 14 directors elected from the organization's general membership and five public directors.

The Robstown Area Development Commission is available to serve as the single, coordinated point of contact in dealing with the various public and private entities and in streamlining the incentive program application process.

The RADC's mission is to bring economic development and stable growth to Robstown and adjacent areas of Northwestern Nueces County.

The banquet started with a mixer followed by the program and dinner at the Richard M. Borchard Fairgrounds in Robstown.
