Message from the President Kevin Shapiro


Greetings from the Wellington Chamber of Commerce! For over 25 years, The Wellington Chamber has been a vital and instrumental component to our business community. Serving our businesses has never been more important than now as we work together to navigate these uncertain times. We are very excited about the future of our community and the success of our members. As always, our organization provides unmatched opportunities to align with old and new relationships and network with prospective customers, as well as a dynamic schedule of events!

The programs and events provided to our members offer extraordinary opportunities to enhance networks & relationships.  As we look to the future, we continue our strategic planning for this quickly evolving business environment in order to offer our members more tools to be successful moving forward.

The last year has been like no other we have witnessed, and this Chamber went into high gear to support its members and shine a light on them in the wake of troubling times. As the incoming President, it made me very proud to be part of an organization which was so supportive of local business, a true passion of mine. The Chamber proudly acted as a marketing arm for many of the businesses who understandably needed assistance during the time of COVID-19.

Through the use of social media, customized videos, business consultation, and events designed with health and safety as the priority, the Chamber showed its strength and innovation to assist and advocate for its membership – and it worked!

As an original Wellingtonian with businesses in this community, and someone who raised my family here, it is of the upmost importance to me that our already high quality and business friendly community grow and excel!

Whether you are new to Wellington or a long time resident, if you are ready to take advantage of all that the Chamber offers its members, we look forward to hearing from you.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and our Executive Director, Michela Green, thank you for helping strengthen our business community and promoting local business. We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events!

Kevin Shapiro
