I have met some great people through the Chamber over the past couple of years. One of them, Steven Hinchee (TD Bank) was kind enough to come into ASD to speak with the students in our Economics class. These students were working on a Startup Business Project and having experts from the business lending field come in to explain the process to them first hand would not have happened without the Chamber of Commerce bringing Steve and I together at a networking event.

When I opened my small business 19 years ago, I was encouraged to join and be involved in a community organization to get name recognition.  Attending as many of the Greater Nashua Chamber of Commerce events (Business After Hours, morning networking, and being on the Ambassador Committee) has been vital in getting the community to recognize my business name.
