Who We Are and What We Do

The Oromocto and Area Chamber of Commerce is an organization of local businesses managed by a board of volunteer directors elected to represent the local business community. The Chamber board meets monthly to discuss ways in which to meet and improve the needs of the membership. Each year we strive to offer benefits designed to assist you in your business, and to save you both time and money. As the membership continues to grow, we continually look for new and innovative ways in which to be of value to the members.

For your general information, the Board of Directors meets every second Wednesday of the month. Any member may contact us to have an item placed on the agenda or for questions. All issues are important if they affect our business community. We will be proactive as we continue to go into the future.

Several times during the year,┬áthe Oromocto & Area Chamber of Commerce hosts a Lunch & Learn – a networking event that is geared towards helping the small business owner. Experts from different industries come and give a short presentation over the lunch hour. These interesting and educational working lunches are a great way to come out and network and learn at the same time. The Lunch & Learns take place the third Wednesday of the month, and the cost and speaker will be listed on our facebook page. You will also receive an invite through email. Come and learn something new and meet and network with other Members of your Chamber. The Lunch & Learns are open to the public so if you want to bring a friend, feel free. If you would like to make a presentation at one of our monthly Lunch and Learn sessions or if you have any suggestions for topics or questions regarding the event, please email the Chamber at oromoctochamber@nb.aibn.com.

The Chamber also holds an Annual Awards Dinner where we honor a local business and a member of our community for their valuable contributions. These dinners are a highlight of the year and a wonderful chance to get out and enjoy a first class dinner, network with your peers, find out what the chamber has been up to the past year, and help honour our local heroes.

We also like to support our students as much as possible. We award two $500 scholarships to two Oromocto High school students, as well as hold an annual pitch contest where entrepreneurial students can win prizes and get mentoring from some local experienced judges. A wonderful experience and a lot of fun to watch.
