What do our members have to say about us?
“Having been a charter member of the “Warwick Board of Trade” since 1934, which became the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce in 1939, with our founder, Harry Seely, being its first President…you could say we are staunch believers in supporting our Chamber and understand the long-term benefits! It’s simple really. As a local community-based business, you become a member of THE organization whose mission it is to support business, to promote our business interests, to foster connections with other businesses, and who has done more to promote tourism and growth to the area than any other entity!! A strong business community means a strong economy, which means a strong housing market, which promotes a strong and healthy school district. I cannot think of another organization who does more to strengthen all aspects of our Community! SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL CHAMBER OF COMMERCE!!”
Garrett Durland, Managing Partner, Seely & Durland insurance, Past president WVCC
Etched In Time Engraving has been an active member of the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce since 2005.
"At my very first chamber mixer I connected with other business owners who were dedicated and like minded individuals. They became my business associates and mentors who I could lean on for advice and encouragement in various areas. We continue to share our experiences and resources within our community locally and beyond."
These relationships are invaluable to my business and professional career. 18 years strong!

Being newer to the area, my involvement with the chamber has provided me with a sense of connection to the local business community. When the opportunity arises, it also gives me the confidence in recommending other businesses and service providers.
