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. ...
