The Rutherford Chamber of Commerce was incorporated in 1927 as a non-profit
organization for the purpose of promoting commercial, retail, industrial and
civic activities for the economic and community development of the Rutherford
Chamber members represent every type of business, industry and profession in
the area. Members of the Chamber's Board of Directors are either selected by an
annual election conducted among all members or appointed by the Board to ensure
diverse representation. The Board of Directors elects Chamber Officers from
among their membership. The President appoints committee Chairpersons.
The Rutherford Chamber of Commerce is committed to carefully planning,
defining, establishing and pursuing policies beneficial to its members. This is
done through an active voluntary committee structure. Committees prepare and
submit proposals to the Board of Directors for action and approval. The Chamber
staff provides the means by which committee proposals approved by the Board
translate into action.
The Rutherford Chamber of Commerce promotes civic efforts that improve
community life and foster good business practices, expresses sound opinions on
questions relating to community welfare, unifies the business community and
channels its energies to constructive programs.
The Rutherford Chamber of Commerce has effectively and capably fulfilled
these responsibilities for 75 years. With your support and participation, the
Chamber will continue to do so for years to come. Please join the many firms and
individuals who realize the value of a strong Chamber of Commerce dedicated to
Rutherford's economic progress and the welfare of the businesses operating
within the community.
