The Eastern Monmouth Area Chamber of Commerce serves the interests of member businesses through skills building seminars, legislative advocacy, promotional support and referral services. The Chamber provides the resources and creates initiatives, programs, products and events to assist businesses toward becoming prosperous and contributing members of the community.
The Chamber is a “member-driven” organization whose programs, events and purpose is determined by the needs and wants of its membership. A volunteer member Board of Directors is elected by the membership to oversee and guide the organization through its annual program of work. The day-to-day operations are under the direction of a full-time Executive Director and Office Team who are responsible for all operations, membership development and programs, public relations and marketing and database management. A roster of volunteer committee members help create, organize and promote Chamber monthly meetings and annual events.
In 1928, 12 businessmen banded together to form the “Red Bank Chamber of Commerce” to serve the business interests of downtown Red Bank. Over the next 28 years, the organization’s membership grew beyond the borders of Red Bank and was renamed the Greater Red Bank Chamber of Commerce and followed shortly thereafter by the Red Bank Area Chamber of Commerce. In 1995, our name – and our service area – was changed to the “Eastern Monmouth Area Chamber of Commerce” to better reflect our growing membership and the rapidly expanding business interests in the neighboring communities of Eatontown, Fair Haven, Little Silver, Monmouth Beach, Oceanport, Rumson, Sea Bright, Shrewsbury and Tinton Falls.
