What is the Chamber of Commerce?
The Monmouth Regional Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit, volunteer organization whose mission is to promote business, enhance economic development, and serve as a catalyst for improving the overall quality of life in our communities. Our vision is to provide opportunities for business growth and prosperity, to offer quality service to members and to serve as a resource leader for business and the community. The Chamber represents the voice of business on a regional level.
Who is the Chamber of Commerce?
The Chamber currently represents member firms coming from business, government, agriculture and industry in the region and also includes several firms located outside our area but committed to doing business throughout Monmouth County. Most importantly, however, the Chamber is PEOPLE working together for economic development and community enrichment. The power of the Chamber is harnessed through the collective action of the membership (retailers, service businesses, wholesalers, manufacturers, financial experts, professionals, doctors, corporate executives, and educators) who works through a committee structure to achieve established goals.
What does the Chamber do?
Acting on behalf of the business community, the Chamber educates, advocates and communicates through business shows, publications, general meetings, seminars, conferences, workshops, legislative meetings, networking programs, partnerships, etc. The Monmouth Regional Chamber of Commerce provides a network for community leaders to hear and listen to input from the business perspective while working together for community development. By offering opportunities for networking, education, professional growth and increased visibility, the Chamber serves its members while improving the quality of life in our area.
