• Welcome to the MetroNorth Chamber of Commerce!

    As the largest Chamber in the north metro area, representing over 700 businesses and organizations, we are very proud of our efforts to build and foster workforce, economic, and community development. Together we provide a positive and dynamic environment which in turn creates a quality community for businesses, families, and students.

  • Who We Are, What We Do....

    By definition, a chamber of commerce is “a local organization of businesses whose goal is to further the interests of businesses; to advocate on behalf of the business community.” Behind the definition, the MetroNorth Chamber of Commerce is a foundation of passionate people working together to strengthen relationships and our shared community. We do that by facilitating programming and events to build connections; advocating on key legislative issues; and supporting leadership and business recovery efforts in order for you to build your business.

     

    If you are looking for an organization where hundreds of other business professionals want to support you and this community, then look no further! We’d be happy to connect with you and discuss your goals and how the MetroNorth Chamber can help you achieve them.
