    RCAP Solutions, Inc.

    Maegen McCaffrey, Chief Communications Officer

    The Nashoba Valley Chamber is a tremendous asset to the community. The events are customized to support both large and small businesses alike and attendance always guarantees new connections and opportunities with great people. The staff is incredibly helpful, supportive, thoughtful and considerate. NVCoC might be considered a "fun" chamber, but make no mistake, their focus is economic development and supporting the business community. I'm proud to be a board member and to be a part of such a great group of professional people.

    David W. Dube, CPA

    The greatest reward of chamber membership has come through the creation of friendships that extend so much further than any business relationships could reach. At every turn I have been welcomed and asked to be a part of a growing, changing, vibrant successful team of winners.

    I am proud to be a member of this great organization that focuses on the very core qualities that I value as a business owner.  Membership in the Nashoba Valley Chamber confirms that I want people to associate my business with qualities like - ‘involved in the community,’ ‘committed to good business citizenship,’ and ‘focused on Nashoba Valley’s future.’ 

     

    Applewild School

    Christopher Williamson (Former Head of School at Applewild School)

    As a relatively new member of the NVCoC, it is presumptuous of me to share what many of you already know so well -- Melissa Fetterhoff provides terrific support! She helped us organize our recent ribbon cutting for Applewild at Devens preschool and transportation hub. Not only did she provide the ribbon (and very fancy scissors!), she was helpful in terms of planning the event, encouraging attendance, and providing a commemorative plaque. What I found particularly impressive was that she researched our program and spoke knowledgeably about it in her remarks. She also read her audience well (our three and four year olds were in attendance), so her remarks were brief! It was a great morning and I recommend contacting her if your organization has an opening coming up -- or just to let her know what’s happening. Melissa is great at sharing and promoting what we are doing.

    Thank you!

    Thank you Melissa!!!  What a wonderful event (Women’s Elite Success Luncheon January 29, 2014)! I really appreciate you being such a huge Bodylines advocate. You and your team really went above and beyond.


    Kidders Express and The Butler Did It

    Kevin Kidder (Kidders Express) and Margaret Kidder (The Butler Did It)

    By having our companies ‘spotlighted’ in the NVCOC Monday newsletter, we experienced an immediate increase in calls and business. We are both small business owners and just starting out. This was very affordable and is geared towards a very focused audience... all business owners who want to do business with each other. I would highly recommend that any business who is looking for powerful and concentrated advertising should check this out.

    Thank you for asking me to join the Nashoba Valley Chamber! I really appreciate what the chamber has done in helping me promote my business. I’ve made great connections just by attending the Business After Hours and have taken on several new clients. This has given me the opportunity to grow my business already in the short time I’ve been a member.

    Joining the Nashoba Valley Chamber has been one of my best business decisions. I have made many valuable connections through the Chamber.  Through our Chamber Referral Networking Group, I have not only received qualified referrals to help grow my business, but I have formed valuable relationships with knowledgeable business people that can provide advice and support as well as a network of business people that can provide my clients with the support they need to run their businesses.

The Chamber staff always works hard to promote business, increase awareness businesses in the community and help create relationships amongst business owners and community leaders.

    Mike Egan

    I began working with Melissa more than 4 years ago. From the first day we met I was able to see the hard work and corporate vision that Melissa has. Melissa and her team are constantly on the look out for ways to assist the members. Of all the chambers I have been involved with in my 20 years of business, nobody has come close to the value or the dedication that Melissa shows toward her job and toward her membership.

     

    Moore Enterprises - Business Telephone Systems

    Marcia Fernald

    Our favorite way to connect with businesses is belonging to the Nashoba Valley Chamber of Commerce. We attend every chamber event we can, from the new member reception to the Annual Banquet. We ask if we can help at events from sitting on the golf course during the Golf Tournament, volunteering to help set up for the Taste of Nashoba, to volunteering on a committee. We have meet more people from local businesses through actively being involved in the chamber than in any other way.

     

    Girl Friday Executive Administrative Support

    Jessica Halloran (Then with Girl Friday Executive Administrative Support)

    The Nashoba Valley Chamber of Commerce has been instrumental in relation to the progression of my company. Still within its first year, Girl Friday Executive Administrative Support is at a critical point of development and I consider NVCoC membership a key asset for success. Much of my business thrives on developing strong working relationships and I have found that the motto “People do business with people they know” could not be truer. Networking, professional seminars, and political awareness have been influential opportunities for me and I would not have made it this far without the support of the NVCoC and its valued members. In addition, I have had a lot of fun and have met some fantastic people!

     

    Enterprise Bank

    Deb LaPointe (Formerly with Enterprise Bank)

    As a Regional Business Bank, Enterprise Bank is a member of a number of Chamber’s of Commerce in the area. What is unique about the Nashoba Valley Chamber is the number of opportunities that a new member can utilize to help grow their business. Let’s face it, with this economy everyone is working hard to stay afloat. Whether you join the Ambassador committee, the Chamber Referral Network, Government Affairs Team or attend one of their many networking events, this chamber and their staff really step up to the plate to help you grow your business. If networking makes you squirm, this is the Chamber that will help you make it second nature. I am pleased to be a member of the Nashoba Valley Chamber of Commerce and can say that it has helped me to enhance my business on behalf of the Bank.

     

    ShirleyArts!

    Meredith Marcinkewicz

    Thanks to the recent Nashoba Valley Chamber of Commerce networking opportunity, “ShirleyArts!” met Jeff Schwarz of Image Software Services to our mutual benefit. ISS has scrap materials which can be used by art classes and Destination Imagination teams at the schools. ISS may also prove to be a good producer of fundraising Christmas cards for Shirley’s First Parish Meetinghouse and they may be a better company for publishing the Shirley Middle School yearbook. Thanks Nashoba Valley Chamber of Commerce for introducing us.

     

    Century 21 Nashoba Associates

    Joanne Smith 

    The Nashoba Valley Chamber has been an essential part of my sales and marketing activities. From the networking breakfasts to the many special events that the Chamber holds throughout the year, I have grown my business within the Nashoba Valley region. I can’t think of a better vehicle to promote yourself and your business.

     

    Ameriprise Financial Services

    Joseph Sciacca

    The Nashoba Valley Chamber has provided an excellent venue for me to connect with businesses in the region. I have met several new clients through the networking events, working on committees and getting involved. I have also enjoyed the social aspect and have enjoyed the opportunity to bring my wife to some of the Chamber events I’ve attended. I have found the staff to be friendly and supportive and genuinely interested in supporting and promoting the member businesses. To top it off, I’ve enjoyed and benefited from the Nashoba Valley Chamber so much so that I recently joined the Board of Directors in an effort to give back to the Chamber.

    Melissa,
    Please let your members know that the majority of inquiries we received concerning our recent search for an administrator mentioned seeing the job posting on your site. This is a wonderful way to connect with local job candidates. We also placed an ad in the local papers with nowhere near the number of responses. If we do need additional help in the future we will definitely go to you first!

    Thank you,

    The Chamber Referral Network (CRN) has increased my visibility, referrals and resources within the Nashoba Valley Chamber of Commerce. In the past year, I have met more chamber members and received more referrals. The Chamber Referral Network has also helped me realize the valuable resources that I have access to as a business owner and chamber member. I recently moved my business within the Town of Ayer and I utilized existing members within the Nashoba Valley Chamber of Commerce, such as a commercial realtor, moving company, telecommunication company and carpet company to help me accomplish this difficult task. I now keep the Nashoba Valley Business Guide and Membership Directory at my fingertips.

    G.W. Archer, Inc. of Ayer and Littleton has been a member of the Nashoba Valley Chamber of Commerce for over twenty years and our membership has more than paid for itself. The key is to be proactive and get involved. The chamber has a variety of ways that you can get involved - based on the time commitment that you can offer. I would suggest contacting the Chamber staff when you are ready. Melissa and the Chamber staff are always friendly and professional and a pleasure to work with. They really make the effort to get to know you and help your business grow.

     

    ISS (Image Software Services)

    Jeff Schwarz

    The Nashoba Valley Chamber of Commerce is an integral component for any small business to become a part of the community it serves. Image Software Services has benefited greatly from participating in events such as the Business After Hours, Working Womens Luncheons and Chamber Referral Network. In turn, the Chamber provides us with an avenue for serving the greater community through activities like the Taste of Nashoba. The efforts and initiatives brought forth by the Nashoba Valley Chamber of Commerce to serve area businesses and the local economic climate should be applauded and I urge every business to get involved.

    Rob Flynn, Principal

    As a member of the Chamber, we gain valuable exposure to the Nashoba Valley business community. Being involved with the Chamber has allowed us the opportunity to develop relationships with other businesses. I am impressed with Nashoba Valley Chamber’s vision, enthusiasm and commitment to the future of the Region. I like the positive “can-do” attitude I have found at this Chamber.
