“Call the Chamber!” Serving the Staten Island Community Since 1895

The Staten Island Chamber of Commerce focuses on four main areas of community involvement and engagement, all centered around improving the economic climate and expanding business opportunities. These areas are: Networking, Education, Help Desk, and Advocacy.


Networking:

The Chamber hosts events throughout the year for business owners to network effectively and expand business relationships and contacts. Through its popular Business After Hours Series, the Chamber highlights its great member restaurants and cultural institutions, while at the same time providing members a relaxed atmosphere to meet and do business. It also hosts an Annual Gala fundraiser, Annual Building Awards Luncheon, and honors outstanding business owners and not-for-profit directors at its Annual Louis R. Miller Business Leadership Awards.

Education:

With support from the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce Foundation, the Staten Island Chamber utilizes its resources and expert members to provide valuable business education and training to the community. Through its educational initiatives, the Chamber aims to support and advance small business development, business technology development, service projects and educational programs. It does so on the topics of healthcare, leadership training, marketing, tax incentives, and others.

Help Desk:

Through its extensive network of relationships with the business community, government agencies, not-for-profits, and other business organizations, the Chamber offers its members a free, confidential business Help Desk, staffed full-time to help expedite and resolve business problems, concerns, and issues. The Chamber helps its members navigate the sometimes onerous systems of regulations and protocols to ensure that Staten Island remains friendly to businesses.

Advocacy:

As a registered 501 (c) 6 organization, the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce has the ability to lobby the government on behalf of the business community of Staten Island. In this regard, the Staten Island Chamber makes it a priority to remain actively involved in and vocal concerning legislation affecting business and commerce at all levels of government. In the past few years, the Chamber’s legislative agenda has focused primarily on transportation and tolls, healthcare, unfunded government mandates, labor laws, and onerous fines and fees.
