Chamber History

The Middlesex County Regional Chamber of Commerce Convention & Visitors Bureau was established in 1910 to serve as the voice of the business community in Central New Jersey. Economic conditions were turbulent as the country was still recovering from the Panic of 1907.

To propel the local economy, the New Brunswick Board of Trade was established with a mission of providing local businesses with an outlet to network and identify opportunities to grow their businesses.

Remarkable innovations, such as the advent of the radio, broadcast television and the internet have propelled us into the 21st Century. However, the Chamber’s mission of bringing local businesses together to interact face-to-face continues to be our first priority.
