Join the Chamber!
It’s The Dawn Of A New Decade At The Geneseo Chamber Of Commerce!
To Current, New & Prospective Members:
The Geneseo Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1947 with the mission of strengthening our local economy. This commitment is stronger than ever as we head into the 2020’s.
I think you’ll be excited about where the Chamber is heading as we enter the next decade.
The Geneseo Chamber is well known for our spectacular events – such as State Street Market, Christmas Walk, Music Fest and Trains, Planes & Automobiles. The Chamber looks forward to continuing these great events, which are economic driving forces and attract thousands of people to Geneseo.
Our membership has ample opportunity to contribute to Chamber events through our committees.
A brief list of the Geneseo Chamber’s goals for the next year can be found below.
I invite you to consider membership with the Geneseo Chamber of Commerce. We are a resource for you! Please feel free to reach out to the Geneseo Chamber if we can ever be of assistance by calling 309-944-2686 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
