The Chamber

ABOUT THE NORTHEAST KINGDOM CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

The Northeast Kingdom Chamber of Commerce is the tri-county’s largest and only fully staffed chamber, handling travel promotion, community/economic development, legislative/governmental relations, business training and promotion of regional projects. It was established in 1891 and celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2016. Our regional chamber has been located in St. Johnsbury, the region’s largest town since its establishment, but a full 50 percent of its members are located outside the borders of St. Johnsbury.

CHAMBER ACTIVITIES

The Northeast Kingdom Chamber sponsors and organizes special events and activities throughout the year such as our organization’s annual meeting, monthly legislative breakfasts throughout the session, e-mail Chamber Alerts & Briefings, the Colors of the Kingdom Festival, Business Celebration, Super Raffle & Silent Auction fundraiser, ribbon cuttings, business roundtable sessions, membership benefit forums and after-hour mixers.

OUR MISSION

The Northeast Kingdom Chamber of Commerce consists of businesses, professional firms and individuals from Northeastern Vermont. The chamber initiates and supports efforts to increase the prosperity of our regional economy while preserving the distinctive quality of the Kingdom and its people.

We partner with many organizations throughout the region as we work towards fulfilling our mission of providing opportunities for businesses to succeed while maintaining a sense of community.

We are a 501(c) 6 non-profit corporation under the laws of the State of Vermont and are a proud member of the Vermont Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (VACCE).

A TRUE BUSINESS

RESOURCE ORGANIZATION

The Northeast Kingdom Chamber offers many varied services, including some you may not have heard of, including fuel- and office-supply discount plans. The chamber also has three large brochure racks outside its office in the Green Mountain Mall in St. Johnsbury Center, holding close to 400 pieces, where we place chamber member brochures and materials.

The chamber is also a notary and provides certificate of origination services free of charge to chamber members within the tri-county region, the only such chamber in the Northeast Kingdom to provide that service. The chamber office also offers use of its conference room and Business Resource Center (two high-speed computers and high-speed internet) free of charge to chamber members, depending on availability.

"The NEK is a beautiful yet rugged place. And doing business here can be the same… beautiful, but with steep hills to climb! Yet, the NEK Chamber is available to provide resources to address issues of area marketing, legislative relations and business networking. If you own a business, you need to be a part of the NEK Chamber. Because as members, we ARE the NEK Chamber!”
