Spirited volunteers provide the backbone of Hunterdon’s community, from the volunteer fire companies and rescue squads that we depend on so totally, to the parents who organize and coach sports teams, and the others who serve our planning boards, historical societies and museums. The Chamber of Commerce is no less dependent on volunteers from its 500+ member companies. Hunterdon firms and non-profit organizations, large and small, provide financial support and send representatives who form the committees that hold our seminars and networking meetings. Chamber committees help to strategize the needs of the business community, near- and long-term, and form the collective voice of business to help assure economic vitality and sustain the quality of life we enjoy in our county.
To be sure, this involvement includes self-interest — the expectation that participation in Chamber activities will provide contacts and exposure that, ultimately, will result in business expansion. That’s an American tradition and we do all we can to encourage and support it. To that end, the Hunterdon County Chamber of Commerce invests in Hunterdon business by providing business and professional development programs for its small business members, issues and policy briefings for our larger participants, and social networking for the entire business and professional community. The Chamber serves as a collective voice for business where and when it matters. We invite participation and commitment to the business and professional communities that are so much a part of our county, its traditions and its values.
Hunterdon County Chamber of Commerce is a proactive partnership of businesses whose mission is to support the success of member organizations by promoting a favorable business climate and providing leadership and business and professional development.
