We were pleased to welcome from the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce, David Maher, Executive Director, and Sarah Kennedy, Director of Government and Community Relations.  David and Sarah provided us with an overview of the Chamber's activities.  The Chamber's services to members focuses on: Advocacy, Networking, and Education.  


Advocacy - The Cambridge Chamber of Commerce takes an active role on public policy issues that impact the Cambridge business community. The Chamber works with legislative bodies and government agencies to bolster and enhance the economic health of the City of Cambridge. The Government Affairs Committee of the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce works closely with members and Cambridge stakeholders to create partnerships that improve the quality of life, and foster a vibrant and stable economic climate in the city. The committee convenes monthly to discuss policy issues that impact the membership, and hosts speaker forums featuring elected and appointed officials.  


Networking - Every business needs to connect with its local community to find clients and employees, products and service providers. Whether you are a multinational corporation or an entrepreneur, the Chamber can connect members with the people, products and services necessary to thrive. 


Education - The Cambridge Chamber of Commerce is committed to the continued education of their members. The Chamber leverages educational resources for members to design comprehensive professional programming that combines individual expertise with the four institutes of higher learning in the city of Cambridge. 


It was great hearing about how the Chamber has been renergized under it's new leadership, and the important role it plays in Cambidge.
