The South Shore Chamber of Commerce, the region’s largest Chamber, will take a new, important step in its history when it relocates its headquarters to Rockland, MA in June of this year.
The announcement was made recently by South Shore Chamber of Commerce CEO Peter Forman, who revealed that the Chamber’s new home will be at 1050 Hingham Street (Route 228), Rockland, with convenient access to the Route 3 (Exit 14) interchange.
Forman said, “In planning the relocation, we took into account that we serve businesses and communities across the entire South Shore, and our membership extends from Quincy to Plymouth and beyond.” He added, “The Rockland location is a convenient and central setting, and will help us as we look to strengthen and grow our membership throughout the South Shore.”
Forman said the Chamber’s Board of Directors and leadership believe that the location will provide a central, highly visible, easily accessible and well-branded location for its members to meet, gather and work.
The Chamber will host an Open House later this year to welcome members and visitors to the new location. “We are very excited to be coming to Rockland,” said Forman, noting, “This is geographically central to our footprint and in an area that holds the great potential for growth of membership.” He added, “We are not aligned with any one city or town and will continue to hold events and work to promote economic growth throughout our region as we have in the past.”
“We are pleased that the South Shore Chamber has selected 1050 Hingham Street as its new business location,” said June Cunniff Vice President and Property Manager of A.W. Perry, Inc. “We are honored to be part of this milestone in the Chamber’s history and it is our privilege to help support and be involved in the Chamber’s upcoming growth initiatives . We extend our appreciation to Peter Brown of Campanelli Companies who represented the South Shore Chamber and Rich Beal of Perry Brokerage Associates who facilitated the lease transaction on behalf of A.W. Perry, Inc.”
