The main purpose of the Chamber is to promote its members and their products, services and community projects to the larger community. We accomplish this in a variety of ways including:
New businesses are welcomed to Pleasantville with a ribbon cutting ceremony officiated by the Mayor of Pleasantville, Chamber of Commerce president and filmed by Pleasantville Community TV (PCTV) for broadcast on Cablevision Channel 76, Verizon 36 and available online at pctv76.org.
The Chamber holds several member networking events, 5-6pm, a year at a member location. In addition to Chamber business and guest speakers, meetings bring members together for fellowship, networking and the exchange of ideas and news.
