The Chamber of Commerce aims to serve its businesses and last week, many of those members came out to show their support at the office grand opening. The Glen Cove Chamber of Commerce celebrated its new location with a grand opening party and ribbon cutting ceremony last week, with about 40 people in attendance to enjoy the occasion of its latest move to 264 Glen St. in Glen Cove.
“The Chamber of Commerce is a very active part of the community,” said Mayor Reginald Spinello at the grand opening. “This location gives it nice exposure as a lot of people and businesses are coming through Glen Cove. I want to thank the members for their hard work and dedication.”
The Glen Cove Chamber of Commerce serves more than 200 businesses in and around the community, providing an opportunity for networking and supporting local businesses. The office was previously at 19 Village Square and moved last month to make room for the long awaited Piazza project, which is expected to break ground sometime this fall.
Executive Director Phyllis Gorham made a point of letting members know the best way they can serve them is by having current contact info readily available to share with others.
“If you’re a member, your business card should be on that wall,” said Gorham, pointing to the information center that holds fliers and business cards of member businesses. She noted that as well as supplying info to people who walk in the door, they also do a lot of work behind the scenes to promote members.
The Chamber of Commerce holds several fundraising and networking events throughout the year, including the Culinary Delights in the spring and the gala in the fall.
Gorham and Chamber President Mary Stanco know their members well enough to know how to lure them in the door: food. The grand opening celebration showed appreciation for members by offering a large spread of sandwich wraps, fruit and veggies, soda, coffee and a cake.
