Letter From The President

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 GreaterBeverlyChamber.com  or make an appointment to see our team of Leslie Gould and Robin Foster at info@greaterbeverlychamber.com
