Networking, Education and Professional Development
The Chamber hosts a number of programs throughout the year.
Business After Hours networking meetings, often held in collaboration with chambers from neighboring communities, offer the opportunity to share information and develop relationships with business colleagues. Members are encouraged to display their marketing materials at these meetings.
Workshops, Seminars and Guest Speakers provide valuable information on a range of issues that affect the business community. Recent programs include "Crimestopping 101" which addressed physically protecting business premises, reducing the risk of being robbed, and how to behave during a robbery, and an evening with Marketing guru Doug Fleener.
The Chamber’s Excellence in Business Awards honor local businesses for outstanding contributions to the economic health and quality of life in Scituate. The award categories allow for recognition of a broad range of businesses.
Government Affairs - A Chamber liaison monitors town government actions that are relevant to the business community, and provides information to the membership via the web site, newsletter, and special notices when necessary.
Scholarships and Gifts - Several $1,000 scholarships are awarded to high school students every year, and donations are made to help support services to senior adults in our community.
