Greetings from the President

The Milford Regional Chamber of Commerce is proud to serve Milford, West Haven, and the surrounding communities. We offer volunteer opportunities, networking possibilities, legislative representation, help with marketing and so much more. Being a member of the chamber is also a great way to make a difference in the economic development of our community. As with many things in today’s world, reasons for joining a chamber have changed over the years. However, the value of chamber membership remains a great investment and offers opportunities for you to grow your business as well as your professional network of contacts.

We strive to inform our members of what is going on in our community, as well as inform the community of what is going on with our members. The Chamber uses many tools to communicate our messages and the messages of our members, including our weekly newsletter, community events calendar, social media sharing and promotions.

We advocate fostering partnerships and collaborations between our member businesses. We are fully engaged with leadership in both Milford and West Haven, along with all our business member groups – and we are laser focused on building these relationships – as we all do better by doing better for each other. We are blessed with so many dynamic organizations, we want to help enhance and promote what these organizations do – not to compete, but to complement.

We also remain a trusted resource for referrals. Those seeking information about our community and/or planning to relocate or visit often reach out to us. We receive dozens of requests weekly through email, our website, and social media. The website itself serves as a referral tool with our online searchable membership directory and interactive map.

Members can leverage advertising and marketing opportunities through chamber publications such as maps, directories, email, our new website, and social media. Members can also share job openings on the chamber website and within our newsletter. We also offer dozens of programs you can get involved in as a member or an employee of a member. Participants gain a wealth of knowledge about the Milford and West Haven regions as well as develop valuable professional relationships.

The chamber offers many opportunities for your business and for you individually. From contests like our annual Best Of, the “I Love Local” gift card valid at over 30 local retailers, panel discussions, legislative round tables, along with a renewed focus on advocacy, there is much to take advantage of.

If you want to make a difference in the Milford and West Haven regions then please share your talents and voice to an established organization like our chamber. We can boost your message, your reach, and your results. If you have any ideas – or innovative solutions to common business challenges – or just want to chat – please feel free to email me at

Be well,
