PLAINVILLE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
The Plainville Chamber of Commerce is a catalyst - a common vehicle through which business and professional people work together for the common good of the community. A better community means better business conditions, and they work for a better community for everyone. There is one reason for the chamber to exist, to do whatever is necessary to keep the area’s economic condition at a level where business will risk their resources in hope of making a profit.
In any community, it is from the profitable operations of business that all other benefits are derived. Only by succeeding in this fundamental goal can they provide the jobs and produce the wealth to finance all the governmental, civic, educational, cultural, and charitable needs that our community is faced with every day.
“We have completely separated from other chamber affiliates and that means we will devote full attention to Plainville based businesses,” co-president Quinn Wazorko Christopher said. “We are in the process of redesigning our website but once it is up and running it will serve as a directory and point of reference for consumers who are seeking products and services within the area. Your business, website, contact information, industry type would be listed in our directory.”
