Companies love company
We're in this, together, because companies love good company. First formed in 1910, Canandaigua Chamber of Commerce now serves members and consumers in six upstate counties, with an enduring focus on enriching the experience of visitors and residents while developing local talent and strengthening the regional economy.
We welcome visitors, residents, entrepreneurs and businesses to the shores of one of the most beloved lakes in the Country. Whether we meet online, in our Visitor Center, at one of our signature events or the sidewalk, we’re happy to offer guidance on how to get the most out of your time in Canandaigua.
More than 500 businesses and entrepreneurs in Ontario, Monroe, Seneca, Wayne, Yates and Schuyler Counties choose to invest in the Canandaigua Chamber of Commerce. They gain access to exclusive education, training and development activities, high-quality, multi-channel marketing opportunities and a chance to connect with fellow influencers.
We also recognize inspiring talent through awards programs including the ATHENA Leadership Program, our Business Inspiration Awards and our Lifetime Achievement Award. Our own talent is developed and recognized through programs of Leadership Ontario, Finger Lakes Tourism Alliance, Chamber Alliance of New York State, Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives and the US Chamber of Commerce.
Our policies and positions are informed by national and global trends, data and research, and most importantly, by our members and the communities we serve, together.
