About Our Chamber

Established in 1991, The Trenton Area Chamber of Commerce continues to support its members, 130 plus in 2016, by promoting Business in our Business Community. Looking back at 2016, here are many of the things we accomplished:

  • Published our Member Brochure, listing all members both alphabetically and categorically. In addition to having it available in our -member businesses, in 2016 we did a bulk mailing, getting it into every household and business in the area. The brochure cover features local photography solicited through a contest we have now each year.
  • Hosted our Annual Dinner in January and three Business After Hours throughout the year; Adirondack Barrel Cooperage in May, Prospect Fall Winery in October and Adirondack Bank in December.
  • Maintain a dynamic Website, www.trentonchamber.com, and Facebook page, Trenton, NY, Area Chamber of Commerce. This year we have added the ability for current members as well as new members to pay dues online.
  • Participate with the Chamber Alliance of the Mohawk Valley, CAMV, in monthly meetings and supporting initiatives put together by the CAMV on State wide issues concerning our Business Community.
  • Awarded $1,000 Endowment to one of our members, Black River Bookkeeping, LLC, for our 7th annual Endowment Fund.
  • Created a "Member Spotlight" feature add in our local paper, The Rural Star. Each issue in 2016 spotlighted 1-2 of our members business or organization.
  • Provided Business Training seminars on Social Media for Small Businesses, taught by professionals from the Small Business Development Center of SUNY Polytechnic Institute.

The Trenton Chamber of Commerce functions on a volunteer basis, everything we provide for our members is accomplished by member's volunteering their time and efforts. Member participation is encouraged and welcome, there are many ways you can offer your time and services. Plan to attend our monthly meetings if you can, we want your input and participation in making this organization work for you.
