The Marshfield Chamber of Commerce renews affiliation with South Shore Chamber of Commerce
The Marshfield Chamber of Commerce became affiliated with the South Shore Chamber two years ago, after having grown to a point where additional administrative support was required and when shifting its focus from a civic organization to an advocacy organization to serve as the voice for business in Marshfield, according to Grabowski.
"One of the most significant benefits of the affiliation is that it has allowed our board members to have more involvement in economic development and become more active in engaging local business and political leaders," said Grabowksi, noting that after four years as President of the Marshfield Chamber of Commerce, he will step down at the end of the year.
"I consider the affiliation with the South Shore Chamber my greatest accomplishment,"
"We have been pleased to support the Marshfield Chamber's leadership and growth," said Peter Forman, President of the South Shore Chamber. "Our purpose in affiliating is not to replace the local business voice, but to help it become stronger. Our regional development strategy for the South Shore requires our communities to have robust business leadership; Marshfield has demonstrated that leadership time and again and we look forward to helping them grow even stronger."
Also affiliated with the South Shore Chamber are the Braintree Chamber; Weymouth Chamber; Rockland Chamber; the Hingham Business Council; and the recently announced affiliation with the Hanover Chamber.
