Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce – Mission Statement
To develop, encourage, promote, and protect the commercial, industrial, professional and general business interests of the community; and to promote the civic interests and general welfare of the town of New Milford and its trade area.
What is the Chamber of Commerce?
The Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce (GNMCC) is an organization that exists so area business people can network, share information and ideas, and collaborate on issues affecting the business community and general well being of our community. Through our monthly activities and events, area business people are afforded the opportunity to come together in both business and social settings. The Chamber also serves as the organizational mechanism in bringing together private business and resources to assist the locale, provides a portfolio of services to assist member companies in growing their respective businesses, and offers assistance to firms inquiring about the area.
However, business growth is not the sole purpose of the Chamber. The GNMCC is a catalyst for positive and progressive growth and continuous improvement in the lifestyles of the people in our hometowns. We are a marketer of the communities we serve by sponsoring events such as the annual New Milford Fireworks Celebration, Village Fair Days and the Tree Lighting Ceremony.
Our membership consists of business people from all facets of the community, including retailers, manufacturers, service organizations, and professionals.
You will quickly discover that the GNMCC is a dynamic organization of enthusiastic individuals who are committed to promoting local enterprises and maintaining the Chamber’s excellent reputation. Being a Chamber member underscores your company’s professionalism and integrity, and shows the public that you share the Chamber’s belief in the importance of fairness and trustworthiness in all business and community dealings.
No community – or business – ever stands still; you either proceed or recede. Other communities are active now – competing for trade territory, industries, new businesses, better highways, more housing, and everything else that will make them a better, more prosperous and more pleasant place in which to live.
Now is the perfect time to join and/or support the Chamber of Commerce….more industries….more residents….more tourists….more people shopping in our community….will mean more business for you and a stronger community for all of us.
