About the Chamber

As a member of the Amherst Chamber of Commerce you are a part of making the Western New York region the best place to live, work and do business.

We are Connectors

Our organization is proud to have distinguished itself as a true partner with our members from sole proprietors to international corporations. Our products and services are affordable and accessible. Each and every member is valued by our organization.

You will notice as you navigate our website, that we proudly provide many benefits you may not find elsewhere. These include complimentary networking events like Business After Hours, Professional Networking Groups (ProNet) and a large young professionals group – Emerging Business Leaders. We also offer free or reduced rate meeting spaces. We provide access to public officials and give our members a voice in shaping public policy throughout the region. These are just a few of the countless offerings provided to you through the Amherst Chamber of Commerce.


Are you searching for solutions to challenges that prevent you from reaching your full potential?

Every program and service we provide has tangible value and is designed to strengthen our community, as well as each and every business in our network.

Are you tired of going to ‘another event’ and seeing the same people and hearing the same message?

We are a future-focused, inclusive organization that provides products and services that benefit all demographics.


Are you tired of political, geographic, gender and ethnic boundaries that preclude you from expanding your ideals and recognition for your products and services?

The range and diversity of voices within the Chamber — from CEO’s, to non-profits and mom and pop businesses, creates a collective impact that gives every member a return on investment and prepares the region for success and sustainability.
