Centrally located in "The Heart of Long Island", the Farmingdale Chamber of Commerce uniquely encompasses both Nassau and Suffolk Counties, the Towns of Babylon and Oyster Bay and the Incorporated Village of Farmingdale. The Chamber is dedicated to building a better business community together while striving to preserve the quality, character and vitality of Farmingdale, New York 11735.
I want to thank all of our members for your membership in the Chamber. I hope you have found it to be an asset to your business, and our work behind the scenes to make our area a better environment for Small Business worthwhile.
The past year had been busy. We rebranded the Chamber. We ran dozens of events, worked on grants for the Chamber and individual businesses. We lobbied with local Elected Officials, and we promoted Small Business Season.
This year I want to remind you that our lunch time General Meetings are the number one way to network in the Chamber. The more you attend, the better networking opportunities and results you will have. The best way to make sure you make the meetings is to mark them on your calendar for the first Thursday of every month with the exception of December.
Also, a great time can be had while "working" at our evening networking events. Typically, they are held at a local bar or restaurant. The more people you talk to about your business the more often you will find both customers and vendors. You can attend all the Ribbon cuttings which is also a great way to network with members and new businesses.
This year we will continue to promote our members through paid articles highlighting members in lists of 10. For example, 10 places to do your holiday shopping, 10 ways to spend a rainy day, etc. They are posted on the website and on our social media accounts, and promoted. If you have any additional content we can feature please let me know.
Our annual Holiday party was great and we thank both our new Board member Joanne Benincasa and our outgoing Board Member Suzanne D'Amico. I got some great feedback on how we can make this event more fun and exciting.
Let’s make 2023 the best year for the chamber AND your business!
