Irene Green | Managing Director | Northern Stage

The Hartford Area Chamber of Commerce has helped me significantly with networking in the Upper Valley over the years. Receiving the Community Business of the Year award from the Chamber in 2015 was meaningful and inspiring for our entire company. I've also made friends through my time on the board and in repeated volunteer efforts with others while supporting the community at the same time. The Chamber has been a great connection point for businesses all working toward the same large goals in the Upper Valley. The advertising and marketing the Chamber provides for my business more than pays for the annual membership fee.
