Dear Valued Members:

I am proud and honored to serve as President of the Greater Beverly Chamber of Commerce.  In this leadership role, I see myself as a conduit for the continued passion our members and volunteers embody for the organization.  With these incredibly dedicated and devoted business colleagues our mission of community, collaborations and connections is a living and ever-expanding program of work.

During these challenging times, the Greater Beverly Chamber of Commerce (GBCC) stood by our members communicating up-to–date State and local information, collaborated with our local elected officials and State delegation to create solutions during the pandemic.    The GBCC collaborated with the SBA for on-line resource funding seminars, we promoted members on our digital communications and continually hosted on-line networking and in-person events to keep us all connected.    Our GBCC stepped-up to serve our business members and community-at-large.

As we transition back to in-person or hybrid business routine, the GBCC will continue to offer the array of high-quality services, programs, and initiatives to help your business succeed.

2022 is on track to be a year of growth for the GBCC as we expand and create several critical member benefits.

We have re-launched our monthly, in-person Government Affairs Committee.  The GAC will invite all members to participate at the table to discuss local and state economic and workforce development issues.  

Watch for a redeveloped, technically modernized GBCC website to launch by mid-year!  Our new website will feature user-friendly navigation and functions to engage the viewer experience    Lastly, by year-end, the GBCC will launch a community-wide gift certificate program; a perfect #keepitlocal gift for all occasions. The gift certificate will encourage shopping locally, promote our members and will keep dollars in our community. 

The GBCC community is driven by creative, community-minded people who are passionate about the positive, productive, and relevant work we do.

If you’re a current member, we thank you for your investment in your local business organization. If you are not a member yet, consider joining by reviewing all we offer at  or make an appointment to see our team of Leslie Gould and Robin Foster at

We look forward to serving you!
