A New Hampshire winemaker is scheduled to speak at the Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce’s 25th Annual Business Awards Breakfast in February.

  1. Although my organization is based entirely on the Massachusetts side of the border, I do not have a problem with the Greater Haverhill Chamber holding an event in one of the NH communities it serves. I will be at the breakfast, as I was last year. Our businesses and communities benefit when we think, act … and do business … regionally.

  2. Couple of quick facts: The Business Awards Breakfast recognizes Chamber member businesses, both from Massachusetts and New Hampshire. We host dozens of events each year, and rotate venues depending upon the type and size of events. We also reach beyond our membership, frequently, to expose our members to a variety of speakers and topics, so that they may learn and grow in their own business.

  3. It is a problem. The vast majority of members are from Haverhill, but the chamber is sending money out of town. The chamber also received $50,000 from the state of Massachusetts. This is a group dedicated only to enriching board members.

  4. I’m confused about the title of this article. Why so much emphasis on New Hampshire, like it is a problem or something… Isn’t it the GREATER Haverhill Chamber of Commerce? That includes much of Southern New Hampshire. I for one think it’s great that they are paying some due attention to the communities and businesses they serve outside of Haverhill.
