Cordish Companies has proposed an important venture partnership they announced in their Leominster casino application. They will fund up to $1.5 million per year to move new medical device companies from patent to production and create additional high-tech jobs in our region. In this area, one out of three private sector payroll dollars now comes from manufacturing. Locating the Slots-Casino in Leominster will not only diversify our employment base, but reinforce our economic core.

Manufacturing sustains our local economy with a quarter of all the private-sector jobs in the region. With innovators like Heat Trace, we will continue to prosper.

Disappointing to hear that Media News has ELIMINATED the local Publisher position at the Sentinel & Enterprise. Editor Charlie St Amand has made real improvements on the news-side. However, the LOCAL business-side link of the daily is vital to our community.

Story
Tagline
A community of businesses working to foster economic opportunity throughout the region.
Introduction
Our 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 purchasing program.

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.
