For 50 years the Amherst Chamber of Commerce has built a sphere of influence by bringing together companies from across Western New York with one vision in mind - to help the region's business community grow and prosper. With this influence comes great responsibility. We have taken this statement to heart and are reinvesting our membership dollars into partnerships, programs and benefits that directly assist our Chamber Members.
The Chamber has grown from a small voluntary group established by several Williamsville business owners in 1957 to a membership based organization of more than 2,000 members representing large and small businesses from across Western New York. Our mission is to create and maintain a positive economic, political and social climate in Amherst, thereby making it possible for members of the community to grow and prosper. Working together, the Chamber membership will accomplish what no one business can do alone.
