Greetings from the President

As we stride into the promising avenues of 2024, it’s with tremendous excitement and dedication that I, on behalf of the entire Milford Regional Chamber of Commerce team, extend my warmest greetings and anticipation for what lies ahead.

Our commitment to fostering growth, embracing opportunities, and staunchly supporting our local businesses remains unwavering. Over this past year, we provided over 200 networking, event, and educational opportunities for our members, a membership that is approaching 600 businesses of all sizes and industries across the Milford and West Haven regions. We produced 18 free concerts for the communities we serve and held over 50 ribbon cuttings for our new member businesses. As we reflect on the achievements of the past and the challenges that have shaped us, it’s clear that the coming year is teeming with possibilities for advancement and success.

Our foremost priority lies in expanding our support for local businesses. These enterprises drive our economy and enrich the fabric of all the communities we serve. This year, our focus remains steadfast on empowering them with the tools, resources, and educational platforms they need to thrive.

In line with this commitment, I’m thrilled to announce the relaunch of our “Lunch and Learn” series. This program, a cornerstone of enhanced small business education, is designed to equip our entrepreneurs and business owners with practical insights, strategies, and expertise vital for navigating the dynamic landscape of commerce. We believe that by providing a platform for continuous learning and skill enhancement, we fortify our local businesses for sustainable growth and resilience. If you’re interested in learning more about this opportunity for 2024, please reach out to Simon McDonald at smcdonald@milfordct.com.

Moreover, 2024 heralds a slew of new opportunities. We aim to expand our programming, curate innovative networking events, and forge strategic partnerships that amplify the visibility and viability of our local enterprises. Our objective is to create an ecosystem where businesses not only survive but thrive, where collaboration and innovation intersect to chart a prosperous future for all.

As your chamber, we are steadfastly dedicated to being your advocate, your ally, and your partner in progress. Your success is our success, and together, we forge ahead into this year brimming with hope, enthusiasm, and unwavering support.

I encourage you all to engage actively with the chamber, seize the opportunities presented, and let us work hand in hand to shape thriving, vibrant business communities in both Milford and West Haven.

Here’s to a year of growth, opportunities, and unyielding support for our local businesses.

Thank you for your continued trust and support.

Warm regards,

Michael Moses
