The East Boston Chamber of Commerce has been busy offering services and events that are impactful and informative. In 2016, the Chamber held a series of networking events featuring guest speakers and participants that brought valuable information to our community’s small businesses.
Among those speakers were: Steven W. Tompkins, Suffolk County Sheriff, Brian Golden, head of the Boston Planning and Development Agency, the Center for Women and Enterprise, English for New Bostonians, Christine Moynihan of Retail Visioning, Juan-Carlos Ferrufino of Ferrufino Consulting, and the City of Boston’s Office of Small Business Development.
On November 10th, 2016, the Chamber held its 3rd Prosperity Awards Gala to honor and recognize 12 of our community’s most influential business and community leaders. MC was former State Senator Anthony Petruccelli and Keynote Speaker was Mexico’s General Consul in New England Dr. Emilio Rabasa-Gamboa.
In collaboration with East Boston Main Streets and the East Boston Merchants Association, the East Boston Chamber has formed the “East Boston Small Business Collaborative”, offering quarterly small business forums.
The Chamber will continue to provide value for your membership, and we look forward to seeing you at a Chamber event soon. On behalf of the East Boston Chamber of Commerce, I wish you a safe, healthy and prosperous 2017.
