Network with Over 800 Connected Fellow Business Associates
Each month, members are invited to network with fellow business and industry friends at one of our many local venues. Some are in the morning. Others at night. But they’re always good for one or two great business connections, and a few laughs. Members can also connect online through our business directory and on our member’s only LinkedIn page.
Stay Informed and Gain Representation on Government Affairs
When you have a 51 year track record of creating a vibrant local economy, you have a voice when it comes time to be heard, or become quickly informed on government affairs that impact your members. When you join the Chamber the issues that matter to you most will get the attention they deserve. You’ll also benefit from our efforts in connecting members to Massachusetts’ workforce development and training grants, and other government assistance programs for small businesses.
