Greater Newark, NY Chamber of Commerce Visitor Information Center, 199 Van Buren Street

In New York State, the Chamber of Commerce was established to oppose the “obnoxious” Stamp Tax Act passed by the Parliament in 1765. Tradesman who were organized to fight and promote commerce. Early
Chambers promoted the sale of goods thru organization of markets and enforcing rules of trade, protection of goods in transit, and even operating their own trading floors.

Chambers evolved into true community organizations when business people realized that their own prosperity depended upon the development of a prosperous, healthy, and happy community! They have since developed an emphasis on industrial development, as well as its’ accompanying civic and commercial growth. In order to be true to their purpose, they remain primarily business organizations, expressing the point of view of business.

A MESSAGE FROM THE 2016 PRESIDENT….

The Greater Newark Chamber of Commerce is looking forward to 2016! It is going to be a year filled with exciting programs and events. We are currently hard at work planning this year’s luncheons, meetings, and events.

This is the time of year when we begin to  develop our business programs for the upcoming year.  I encourage everyone to consider sponsoring a Chamber event this year. We have many opportunities for you to get your business name out in the community. Some events we will continue this year, and are seeking sponsors for are: The annual Chamber dinner, Music on the Erie, Chamber Golf tournament, and The 4th Annual Wine & Artisans Festival on the Erie. Please consider investing in one or more of these community events.

Thank all of you for your continued support in 2015. It is because of you and your support of the Greater Newark Chamber of Commerce had a successful 2015. Without your membership investment, participation on committees, and sponsorship/attendance at our programs, the Chamber would not be able to continue offering these events in 2016.

Also, if you have additional thoughts on things you would like to see the Chamber consider doing or participating in, please let me know. The Chamber always welcomes new ideas and suggestions. This assists us in expanding and improving our events. We are dedicated to making improvements our members want to see.

Sincerely,

Jessica Wells

President
