|Information||The Chamber of Commerce is a volunteer organization made of business and professional people sharing a common goal — the economic development of Amherst & Area. Small and large businesses from virtually every sector and profession form the membership. We serve the Amherst, Oxford and Sackville, N.B. areas.
We also represent and promote the members of the organization. We identify community problems and issues affecting business and work collaboratively with our partners to solve these problems, accomplishing collectively what no business can do alone.
The Amherst & Area Chamber of Commerce offers a wide variety of benefits to assist local businesses including cost saving discounts, networking opportunities, and opportunities for exposure.
