  • Our Mission

    The Hudson County Chamber of Commerce is the leading resource for driving economic growth—providing education, advocacy and access to our members within and throughout each community in Hudson County.

    Our Vision

    To continue to be recognized as the premier leader in advocating for commerce while creating an environment in which business, government and community work hand-in-hand to drive economic vitality.

    Our Values

    We value the diversity that has always been central to Hudson County—one of the most dynamic and diverse counties in the United States. We also value the County’s  urban nature, which has been critical to its growth and development.

    We believe that shopping, the procurement of services and giving local are critical to supporting a robust regional economy. In addition to educating our Members and the public about shopping, procuring services and giving locally, the Hudson County Chamber strives to practice what it preaches. Our policy is to shop and seek services locally before considering vendors outside of Hudson County. Further, we will consider conducting business with our Members first, before considering a local, non-member vendor.

    Our membership is primarily sourced within the 12 municipalities that comprise Hudson County, but also extends across the United States to as far west as California.  Any company that has an interest in doing business in Hudson County are welcome to join our growing membership.
