Our History

 

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 Community.

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.
