Our History

“For over 68 years, the Greenwich Village-Chelsea Chamber of Commerce (GVCCC) has served as the leading voice of business in our communities. Founded in 1949 by a select group of small business entrepreneurs in Greenwich Village, the Chamber has steadily grown to service Greenwich Village, Chelsea, SoHo, NoHo, Union Square, Flatiron, and the East Village.

What started out as a few dozen businesses banding together, is now hundreds of members strong. The Chamber membership ranges from sole proprietorships to locally owned independent businesses, to major institutions and organizations. Our diversity is one of our greatest assets, providing our membership with unique opportunities and a strong voice from which to address business issues. The Chamber also offers numerous benefits and services including networking opportunities, business and educational seminars, government advocacy, marketing and promotional campaigns and much more.”
