The Northeast Kingdom Chamber is the tri-county's largest and only fully staffed chamber, handling travel promotion, community/economic development, legislative/governmental relations, business networking and promotion of regional projects.

The chamber, based out of St. Johnsbury with about 300 members, is conveniently located at the Green Mountain Mall, across from JCPenney.

We believe the best businesses in the Northeast Kingdom are Northeast Kingdom Chamber members.
