How Can You Make The Most of Your Chamber Of Commerce Membership? GET INVOLVED!!!!!!!
South Shore Chamber of Commerce Mission: To serve the interests of the membership and the business community by promoting an understanding of the contributions made to the economic well-being of the South Shore
The Boston Business Journal has named the South Shore Chamber of Commerce the largest Chamber of Commerce in the area. What better way to present to yourself and your business to over 2,500 potential customers!!!!
Our many different events encourage you to come out and meet your fellow members and potential customers. New Member Receptions. Upon joining the Chamber of Commerce you will shortly thereafter be invited to a reception which will allow you to meet the Chamber Staff and better acquaint yourself with the organization.
The reception also allows you to introduce yourself and your business to other new Chamber members. In addition to meeting the staff and other new members, members of our Board of Directors and other committees will be on hand to give you a warm welcome!!! 7:44 Breakfasts - a Chamber tradition. We bring in speakers such as John McCain, Ted Kennedy, Chad Gifford, Marshall Carter and the like to answer YOUR questions.
Hi Tea - sponsored by the Women’s Business Connection, a committee of the South Shore Chamber of Commerce. Much like the Business After Hours, however, the networking is facilitated by volunteers. Business After Hours - an informal gathering designed specifically for you to meet other members. Members volunteer their premises and provide light fare for guests, thus bringing people in to see their establishments.
Our Annual Golf Outing is celebrating its 75th Diamond Jubilee Anniversary this year!! This event is a member only event that attracts over 800 people each year. You don’t have to be a golfer to enjoy this day long event. Starting around noon, the games begin, as well as burgers, dogs, and ribs. The evening culminates with a steak and lobster dinner. Good food plus good people equals good business.
