Chamber is an advocate for initiatives to expand economic opportunity in
North Central Massachusetts. We are recognized as a leader in the
creation of unique workforce training programs of benefit to local
employees and employers. The NCM chamber pioneered an effort to lower
the cost of doing business in this region through our group energy
We facilitate dynamic, interactive seminars
to serve a range of interest via our Human Resources Council, our
Executive Women's Network, our annual local elected officials reception,
and our highly regarded "Good Morning North Central Massachusetts"
breakfasts. Through several innovative partnerships, we've expanded our
leadership to include programs that improve the quality of life, such
as operating the Johnny Appleseed Visitor & Tourist Information
Center on Route 2, and publishing a quarterly cost-of-living index
proving that North Central Massachusetts remains the most affordable
metropolitan region in New England.
Ultimately, our Chamber's
guiding principle is to expand economic opportunity, and we support
small businesses, especially with our Health Insurance HMO partners
offering group rates and our affiliate, the North Central Massachusetts
Development Corp., providing creative business loan opportunities.
