    Our Mission

    To enhance the economic vitality and quality of life of the Greater Peterborough region through support of existing businesses, expansion of commerce, and community leadership.

    Our History

    The Peterborough Board of Trade, founded in 1904, reactivated in 1974, became the Peterborough Chamber of Commerce in 1975. The name of the Chamber was changed to the Greater Peterborough Chamber of Commerce in 1992 to indicate a broader range of membership within the Monadnock Region.

    Who We Are

    Your Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary partnership of business and professional people working together to build a healthy economy and to improve the quality of life in your community.

    As your Chamber works to accomplish these goals, it wears many hats: economic developer and planner; tourist information center; business spokesperson; economic counselor and teacher; government relations specialist; human resources advisor; and public relations practitioner.


    Simply stated, your Chamber is business and professional people working together to make your community a better place for everyone to live and work.

    Leadership

    Your Chamber of Commerce is run by its members. They elect a Board of Directors that determines policies and sets goals. The Chairman presides over all Board meetings. Your chamber's day-to-day operations are handled by an Executive Director. Members often become involved in chamber activities by working on committees. These committees include Education, Business Support, Small Home Business, Retail, Tourism, Communications, Events/Seminar, The Arts Council and Ambassadors.

    Objectives

    As it works to improve your community's economy and quality of life, your chamber keeps these broad objectives in mind:

    • Help businesses prosper and grow

    • Increase job opportunities

    • Encourage an orderly expansion and development of all segments of the community

    • Contribute to the overall economic stability and quality of life of the community
