Who Are We?
The Pocono Chamber of Commerce is an organization made up of people working together to make our community a better place in which to live and do business. Your membership not only entitles you to the Chamber’s services; it gives you the opportunity to participate at many levels.
Chamber networking functions such as expert panels, monthly mixers, and Women in Business luncheons offer members the chance to socialize and develop new business contacts. Volunteering on a Chamber Committee also gives members the chance to get involved, improve our community, and meet new contacts.
