The Greater Pascack Valley Chamber (GPVCOC) has a proud history of serving ten communities, specifically: Emerson, Hillsdale, Montvale, Old Tappan, Oradell, Park Ridge, River Vale, Washington Township, Westwood, and Woodcliff Lake.
As concerned individuals working together at the GPVCOC, we foster a vital and responsive chamber of commerce, which results in a better return for business, professional and industrial development.
Membership in the Greater Pascack Valley Chamber of Commerce is not in lieu of membership in one or more of the local town Chamber of Commerce organizations. In fact, we encourage dual membership and have structured our membership fees to provide discounts for those who are members of a local Chamber. Dual membership allows local businesses to extend the reach and benefits of membership to the entire greater Pascack Valley and not limit it to just one town.
While the Greater Pascack Valley Chamber of Commerce greatly supports the local town-based Chamber of Commerce organizations, not all towns in the greater Pascack Valley have active Chamber of Commerce organizations. The GPVCOC may provide the only local Chamber representation and benefits for their town.
Whatever the situation in the town where your business is located or where you reside, you can benefit from membership in the Greater Pascack Valley Chamber of Commerce.
