Connecting Businesses and Services to Help Each Other
The Otsego County Chamber of Commerce helped Family Planning of South Central New York, Inc. publicize our new name when we rebranded in 2013, with a ribbon cutting and numerous mentions in their newsletter and other publications. They are business experts and have advised us on marketing, advocacy, business trends, and patient recruitment. Every year, the Chamber offers multiple venues for us to network with other local businesses, as well as ways to attract new patients. They have also recommended good vendors for us, because we like to buy our supplies and hire contractors locally. The Chamber’s newsletters inform us of special events in the community. We appreciate all they’ve done for us!

The Otsego County Chamber of Commerce has passions for both small and big businesses, as well as working towards getting more businesses interested in our fine area. The Chamber offers the tools to help small business grow and helps to connect businesses and services that can be of help to each other. As a small business owner of a business that has been in existence since 1951, I value the services and support that the Otsego County Chamber of Commerce has to offer.
