Network and Build Your Business

Summertime is a great opportunity to focus on and build your business.  The Huntington Chamber offers events and an abundance of vibrant committees which provide a great platform to become involved with Long Island’s business and community leaders and to showcase your business.  “Getting involved with the Chamber is a great way to increase your contacts, conduct business, and become part of a respected group of business professionals,” said Chamber Co-Chairman Jim Kelly. “The chamber provides our members with a platform for personal development, community stewardship, business networking, and potential strategic alliances. I encourage our members who have not taken on a leadership role within the organization to consider doing so by taking advantage of the many opportunities available or by joining one or more of our committees.”

There are many ways to become involved with the Chamber and to display your business talent. Consider attending or sponsoring the Chamber’s signature events, become part of a committee and connect with other business professionals with similar interests,  attend any of the year-round seminars and breakfast programs and Business After Hour events or participate in the many initiatives which the Chamber offers its members (i.e. Member-to-Member Discount, Member Spotlights, etc.)

Huntington Chamber committees include:

The Education Committee is committed to providing valuable programs for its membership and to provide workshops and seminars critical to small business owners as well as corporate leaders. These worthwhile programs are filled with the newest information that both employers and employees can utilize and benefit from in the workplace.

The Environmental Committee was created to define, educate and promote sustainable, green initiatives for Chamber members in an effort to assist them in continually improving business processes to help in protecting the environment.

The Government Relations Committee reviews current issues to assess their impact on local business, employment and the economy. The Committee assists in educating its membership on both sides of a particular issue so that they may make informed decisions.  The Committee does not involve the endorsement of incumbents, candidates, or those contemplating public office.

The Long Island Fall Festival Committee was designed to support the successful running of the annual Long Island Fall Festival. The Committee focuses on attracting new and unique vendors, assisting with logistics such as traffic control and ticket sales, obtaining volunteers and new exciting events to make the Fall Festival a success.

The Membership Committee nurtures the connection, interaction and involvement of new and existing business and individual members with the leadership, committees and programs of the Huntington Township Chamber of Commerce. It serves as the welcoming committee of the Chamber and acts as the membership ambassadors to add the personal touch in keeping our members apprised of events and encourage participation.

The Small Business Advisory Committee provides free confidential counseling to those who wish to discuss business opportunities or seek advice with issues that may arise while growing their business. Starting a small business is risky and although you may have the desire, be a highly motivated and a talented person, having the access to knowledge of what is required is what will make you a success.

The Young Professionals Committee brings together young influential people from business, non-profits and government offices to share their experiences, utilize each other’s resources, generate business, work with Chamber members and build their careers.

The Veterans Committee serves as a resource for the military members of our Armed Forces, as well as support for their families through local civic, business and volunteer organizations. The committee acts as a liaison between organizations in providing support for a veteran’s transition from military to civilian life when the soldier returns home.

The Village Merchants Committee offers an opportunity for local merchants to discuss topics specific to their business within the Township of Huntington by utilizing the resources of the Chamber. These resources include events, local government policy and working together to increase business for all.

The Women in Business Committee provides information, support and resources in an effort to assist women in continually improving business processes and to help their personal and professional growth. The Committee provides networking and seminars on topics about issues and challenges that women face in today’s society.

Multi-Cultural Business Committee was established to foster working relationships between diverse businesses and  promote greater awareness of various ethnic communities.  To create business opportunities for all, by exploring the experiences of different cultures in and out of the workplace.
