Why join the Greater Pascack Valley Chamber of Commerce?
Studies* have shown that members of a chamber of commerce get instant credibility. These instant benefits include: increased consumer awareness, favorability, reputation and likelihood of future patronage. Chamber membership translates in the consumer’s mind that your business is trustworthy, a neighborhood leader, and invested in the community.
In addition to instant credibility, you have access to powerful resources and networking tools to take your business to the next level including opportunities to meet key elected officials, influence policy in our local community, free seminars to brainstorm with fellow entrepreneurs, demographic info, and consumer access for your business on the Chamber’s Website. And, chamber dues may even be tax-deductible.

THE GREATER PASCACK VALLEY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE was established more than 40 years ago to promote the business and community interests of the ten towns in the valley.
Monthly breakfast and quarterly lunch meetings of the board of directors and members are held on the first Tuesday of each month excluding July and August. Additionally, a series of networking events are held during the year whereby members and potential members can exchange business ideas and make contact with new companies and individuals.
The Chamber provides support for community projects including borough social services, community hospice, The Center for Food Action, Pascack Valley Historical Society, Spectrum for Living and the American Legion. In addition to these monetary gifts, many Chamber members volunteer to participate in the activities of these groups.
Moderate membership dues, based on the number of employees, are on a sliding sale to encourage participation of businesses of all sizes. A special individual membership is available to residents who are not associated with any business within the Pascack Valley, but who would like to participate in the benefits of the Chamber of Commerce activities. ...
