About Us

"Serving the Portsmouth Area for over 100 years."

The Chamber of Commerce is a volunteer, non-profit organization that unites the efforts of business and professional individuals in an effort to foster a healthy economy to benefit the entire community. We strive to provide a format for business in which ideas can grow and be shared. Funded by over 500 members and driven by progressive leadership, our organization offers programs and services that support our members, and in turn, support the community.

While the Chamber's primary focus is supporting its members by providing a variety of services and benefits to them, its broader focus is encouraging community involvement and pride. The Chamber works in collaboration with many other organizations and local government to promote our community as an exceptional place to live, work and play.

The policies and programs of the Chamber are determined by our board of directors.  The Chamber board of directors and Chamber staff are dedicated to serving the needs of the community.
