Welcome To The New Hartford Business Council

"All Aboard for Better Business"

The New Hartford Business Council was formed in 1987 to promote the local business community through community activities. Promoting networking among our members and neighboring businesses enables us to foster a positive business environment and create opportunities for people to spend their dollars locally. We look forward to welcoming you and your business as part of the New Hartford Business Council.

Our NHBC membership has been growing substantially. The linked association between NHBC and the Canton Chamber of Commerce has brought with it greater opportunities for networking, and additional business contacts. NHBC members have been offered a reduced rate to join the Canton Chamber of Commerce.

Together we are working to advance the economic development of the business community.

We think they found their good time and then some. The laughter filled the building and it seemed as though noone was ready to leave when the show was over. Three acts performed for over two hours. What a special treat to see class acts right here close to home.
