CHAMBER PRESIDENT & CEO
Summer is flying by! In July, we focused on bringing you, the business owner, closer to your audience and network. From our Annual Business Expo to Queens Soccer Night to our Annual Boat Cruise, we strive to make the connections that matter.
I’ve said it time and again: Your success with the Queens Chamber is all about taking advantage of the opportunities and events we host. If you are ever curious, be sure to take a look at our calendar (available at queenschamber.org) or give us a call (718.898.8500).
Again, summer 2018 is all about educating and networking. Over the next two months, we have more than ten events programmed to help you, the small business owner. Whether it be Business Card Exchanges or Educational Seminars, we want to assist in getting the word out about your company.

New Member Orientation
The Queens Chamber of Commerce is committed to maximizing your membership. As such, we are implementing a quarterly “New Member Orientation” where those Members who joined in the previous quarter will attend a basic meet-and-greet and training seminar. If you are a new member of the Queens Chamber of Commerce, our next “New Member Orientation” is scheduled for Thursday, August 16, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. We are hosting it here at the Queens Chamber of Commerce, so don’t miss out.
