Over a century ago, a group of Long Branch merchants banded together to form the City’s first Board of Trade, laying the groundwork for what would become the Greater Long Branch Chamber of Commerce. Over the years, the Chamber has worked tirelessly to develop, encourage and promote retail, service, hospitality, industrial, educational and tourism based concerns under a set of common goals: to promote a Chamber and its member businesses that boasts a diverse, energetic and dynamic membership and to welcome new business people, residents and visitors.
