What does the Hanover Chamber of Commerce do?
We focus on 3 main objectives:
WE ARE AN INDEPENDENT BUSINESS ORGANIZATION.
Our by-laws state our intent to be a representative of the entire local business community - not a representative of a/just one interest, business, industry, person or political party. We are funded by membership renewals, events & programs, sponsorships and other strategic partnerships. The Hanover Chamber of Commerce is not a department of Hanover County, but thrives with the support of (optional) local business memberships. Our positive relationship with the County greatly aids our efforts and enhances our voice, while separation from the County ensures unbiased actions and an ability to challenge ideas if needed.
