Incorporated in 1938, the Somerset-Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce has experienced much success over the past seven decades. Through the years, the Chamber has been the primary business advocacy group for the community, supporting its 65,000+ residents. Today, the Chamber has over 900 members and is run by a 19-person board of directors. Our Chamber is made up of nearly 90 percent small business, with the majority of those having four or fewer employees. The Chamber has numerous programs benefiting our members. While some programs assist and promote business, other programs help develop local business leaders into community leaders. The Chamber staff is currently comprised of three employees who run the day-to-day activities of the organization. The Chamber is organized into four divisions:
- Economic and Community Development
- Membership Development
- Communications and Marketing
- Government Affairs and Public Policy
