The Hanover Area Chamber of Commerce is a membership-based organization that prospers through its partnerships with area schools, businesses and organizations. It is through these types of collaborations that the Chamber is able to provide its members with the tools they need to succeed in the Hanover area.
Over 90 percent of the our membership is comprised of small businesses with 25 employees or less. More than half of the businesses that join do so for the advertising and promotional opportunities; 38 percent join for networking.
We serves our members by providing an array of quality products, programs and services, including health insurance, property and casualty insurance, educational workshops, networking opportunities and employment screening services.
Member events include monthly breakfasts, mixers, and open houses, as well as annual events like the Christmas luncheon, golf outing, and business awards. Community events include the Hanover Dutch Festival and Snack Town Brewfest.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
