About the Chamber

The Greater Wellington Chamber  was founded in 1996, one year after the Village of Wellington itself. It was founded by a group of local business professionals. Our current president is Peter Bartuska.

Our Board of Directors is comprised of top businessmen and women who wholeheartedly give their time and resources to make the Chamber a more vibrant, successful and positively recognized community-based agency.

The many annual programs of the Chamber reflect a rich tradition of achievement of the goals within the mission statement. For many, the year actually starts in December with our biggest event of the year, Winterfest with Vanilla Ice! Thousands gather for a holiday themed live music and family friendly festival featuring our very own hometown celebrity and philanthropist Vanilla Ice!

Winterfest gives way to the coming of the New Year and the height of the “season,” accompanied by much excitement for our equestrian, dressage and polo competitions. Thousands of people strong, the equestrian professionals are back, and the Greater Wellington Chamber welcomes them in the name of our local merchants.

In March each year, the Greater Wellington Chamber recognizes and installs our incoming Board of Officers and Directors.

For the last 20 years, our FLAVORS OF WELLINGTON food and wine event has showcased our outstanding food, beverage, and hospitality partners. FLAVORS is a MOBILE EVENT taking our attendees around the Village to visit their local Wellington Chamber eateries and establishments. Our 2024 event will kick off at Wellington National Golf Club. 

Our committees have been on the cutting edge of new and innovative ideas in generating economic growth and change in our community.  We host exciting and innovative events and continue the search to find the highest and best land use for Wellington development projects. We have sponsored numerous candidate forums and debates in order to keep our members better informed on the issues that affect their businesses.

The Women of Wellington (WOW) was designed specifically for our local businesswomen to provide opportunities for women-to-women networking. This committee of exceptional and philanthropic women select a different local nonprofit each month and works with it on special events and projects as well as to bring exposure to the organization. Their monthly “Supper Club” events sell out in minutes and are a most anticipated event.

The Greater Wellington Chamber also offers many opportunities for local merchants and professionals to network and showcase their businesses. These are not just ribbon-cuttings but true community networking events where one can come and meet our Board of Directors, Ambassadors, your neighbor or maybe your next customer. They are innovative, exciting and effective!

Our monthly luncheons and breakfasts have gained notoriety in the community as innovative, interactive NOT-TO-MISS events. Each month promises a new and “in the news” high-profile speaker addressing topics of paramount interest to our members and to the community.

Our President’s Circle Membership is comprised of top prominent local business leaders, community leaders and entrepreneurs. This trustee level of the Chamber grows every year and is a perfect opportunity to maintain a highly visible profile in the community.

We are proud to offer our AWARD-WINNING official Guide to Wellington, which the Chamber publishes annually. People call the Wellington Chamber first because they recognize it by the name! They want the “local” chamber, and they get it with us! Come on by. You’ll be glad you did. “WE ARE WELLINGTON.”
