Initiatives

We are dedicated to the continued improvement and revitalization of the Hanover area. As an organization, we strive to be an advocate and voice for the business community, working to promote legislation, enhance the local workforce, and spur economic growth.

 

Workforce development

We partner with local schools and employers to recruit, train, and prepare individuals to join the workforce. Through our apprenticeship program, high school students have the opportunity to learn a trade and secure a position within one of our partner businesses.
 

Professional Development

Through our Leadership Hanover program, individuals can better know the Hanover area, network with key business men and women, and establish strong relationships with members of the community. The chamber also supports Hanover Area Young Professionals, a group offering monthly networking events for young professionals in the Hanover area.

economic development

We partner with Main Street Hanover to revitalize and recruit businesses to our downtown. On a broader scale, our tourism brand, Discover Hanover, draws visitors from more than 50 miles away to shop, dine, and experience all that the Hanover area has to offer.
 

Advocacy

As a member of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, we are dedicated to providing our members with news about important legislation impacting the Hanover Area. We are actively involved with our local legislators as well, and provide quarterly opportunities to meet and chat at our Legislative Roundtables.
