Greater Wyoming Valley Chamber of Commerce Board

The Chamber of Commerce acts as the “Voice of Business” on issues that affect the community. Working with a volunteer network of hundreds of business leaders, the Chamber serves hundreds of member businesses and the community by providing a wide range of programs and sponsoring important area events. It is the Chamber division, with its responsibility for programs and services, that publishes the member directory. This community organization traces its origins to 1884 and the formation of the Board of Trade. It later evolved into the Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Commerce, maintaining the goal of working to help area businesses succeed and grow.
