About Us


Our Mission

Your Newington Chamber of Commerce is an instrument of action designed to be a representative voice of business in the community.

Who We Are

We are a voluntary organization of business people who work together to advance the economic, commercial, civic development, and related needs of the community. It is a network of local leadership who has the talent and resources to drive and support continued business opportunity and community improvements.

The Chamber provides the forum and the mechanism that enables business people to accomplish collectively what they could not achieve individually.
