The Chamber is looking for interested businesses in the community who would like to help the community function for a better way of business.
What is the Chamber of Commerce of the Moriches?
It is a voluntary organization of individuals and businesses who have joined together to advance the commercial, financial, industrial and business interests of the community. It will serve as an action designed to meet community and area needs.
Who are its members?
Any business, firm or individual sharing a common business interest in community improvement can be eligible for membership.
Who pays for it?
Financed by membership dues and fund raising activities, the Chamber expenses are apportioned to members. Chamber membership is an investment in the present and future needs of the community.
Who runs it?
The organization is run by the Officers and by the Board of Directors who are elected each year by the Chamber members. The Board reports to the members monthly at the general membership meetings. The Board serves without pay.
How much does membership cost?
Membership in the Chamber costs $150.00 with your initial application, which gives you a full calendar year membership in the Chamber, placement on our mailing list for notification of all future meetings and events and placement of their business or residential name on the Chamber Bulletin Board located on Main Street in Center Moriches.
Why Should I Join the Chamber of Commerce? (a.k.a. what can it do for me?)
“A Sense of Belonging”
The first and most important factor should be your concern for the Moriches area, its people and their businesses. As a community member, everything in the community affects you in some way, and your support of the Chamber demonstrates your commitment to a better Moriches area.
“A Helping Hand”
The Chamber will try to assist any members with concerns as much as possible.
We’ve had concerns on land rezoning, garbage pick-up, traffic headaches, planning for future activities - many, many subjects - and the Chamber helped resolve them.
“Advertising and Promotions”
As a group, the Chamber maintains a high public profile, keeping your name in front of others, and sponsoring advertising and promotions as a group to lessen costs and bring commerce into the Moriches area. The Chamber offers social and community events to enlighten your knowledge and broaden your group of friends
“Chamber Sponsored Community Events”
The high point of Chamber activities and the Moriches’ greatest yearly events: Arts, Crafts, Summer Concerts, Parades, great food, prizes, and awards fun for everyone! The Spring Fair, Summer Arts & Crafts Festival and Chinese Auction, and the Fall Festival are the fairs held on Main Street. Every member, whether located on Main Street or not is invited to participate with a table or display.
We sponsor the Summer Concert Series, St. Patrick’s Day Parade, and also the March of the Goblins. The list goes on. The importance of our community gathering together to celebrate the Moriches area is overwhelming. A sense of pride is developed. We’re here and proud of it!
