As a new member of the Wachusett Area Chamber of Commerce, I was instantly impressed by the warm welcome I received from Jen Stanovich. It was obvious right away that she truly cared not only about the success of my business, but my personal success in networking as well. I quickly met quite a few great business people through the monthly Chamber Chats, per Jen’s recommendation, and these initial introductions have since flourished into great relationships.

Now, as a member of five Chambers in total throughout Massachusetts, I must say that the Wachusett Area Chamber networking events are some of my favorites. The Chamber is just large enough that there is always someone new to meet, but just small enough that it feels like a family. For this reason, and simply due to the friendliness of the group as a whole, the networking happens organically and nothing feels forced. The Wachusett  Area Chamber creates an environment in which its members build not only solid business relationships, but long-term friendships as well. What could be better than that?”

“Joining the Wachusett Area Chamber of Commerce was the right decision! Being new in town, the Chamber’s ribbon cutting gave me a fast start in the community and it provided me with the visibility to the businesses in the area as well. The opportunity to offer a seminar to the Chamber members was greatly appreciated.”

“One of the first things I did when I opened my business was to join the Chamber.  I met a lot of great people who shared the same challenges of being in business.  The group was a big help to me starting out and I am still active today.”

“Being a member of the Chamber is all about viability and visibility.  It’s just something you do if you are a business in this community.”

“Being a member of the Chamber has definitely helped me to grow my business.  By participating in the “Taste of the Towns” event and by appearing on the Chamber’s On the Road TV show, word has spread about all that we have to offer to our customers.  The Chamber works hard to promote its members within the communities it serves.”

“I just wanted to thank all of you for the scholarship and especially the great evening at the Chocksett Inn.  After meeting all of you and being involved in (the Annual Dinner) I am very interested in the Chamber and I am definitely thinking about joining when I am older.  Thank you all so much!”
