About Us

The  Lebanon  Area Chamber of Commerce is a private, not-for-profit association of business and professional firms and individuals in the Lebanon, New Hampshire area. Founded and incorporated in 1916, it is dedicated to improving the business climate and thus the overall quality of life in the region it serves.

We currently have nearly 400 members, from individuals and “mom-and-pop” stores to large banks and manufacturing corporations, all dedicated to the same mission. Each year the Chamber fields thousands of phone calls and visits from tourists, visitors, newcomers and the general citizenry, answering every type of question about the city and its commerce. It also maintains a steady flow of information to its members on topics of interest and necessity.

Services available to members include:

  • Business-to-business advertising
  • Member newsletter
  • Chamber publications with your free listing (thousands distributed each year, including Lebanon Area Profile and Lebanon Street Map and Directory)
  • Referrals to your business in response to thousands of inquiries handled by the chamber
  • Special events, such as the annual HomeLife Expo and the annual Lebanon Chamber Golf Tournament benefiting a local scholarship
  • Public forums on issues important to the business community
  • Co-operative seasonal advertising
  • Social networking at the Chamber’s “Business After Hours”
  • Expertise from other Chamber members and Chamber staff
