The chamber’s primary goals are to:

Our staff consists of an Executive Director, a Events & Members Services Manager, an Administrative Coordinator, a Visitor & Member Relations Coordinator and a summer Volunteer & Visitor Relations Intern.
We work with a 12 member Board, and over 136 volunteers that help us as concierges welcoming visitors to the region, greeters for cruise ships, and on our special events including our Annual Awards dinner in May, Claw Down in September and Harbor Lights in December.
We have a full host of chamber benefits for our members including our popular Business After Hours that are held throughout the year. We produce a 148 page Region Guide, a Region and Sculpture Map, numerous advertising campaigns, and we manage our office Visitor Center and our Downtown Information Center.
Whether you live here, want to visit or move here, we are your one-stop shop for information on the region. Our office hours are open Monday through Friday: 8:00 am to 5:00 pm EST. We look forward to welcoming you to the region!
