Our Focus

The constant purpose of the Norwood Chamber of Commerce, shall be to advance all of the business, professional, civic, and cultural interest.

  • A democratic system of free, competitive enterprise;
  • To encourage unselfishly the growth of existing business activities while giving all proper assistance to any new firms or individuals seeking location in Norwood and vicinity;
  • To speak for the Chamber's members in the city, state, and national legislative and governmental matters, but avoiding partisan policies;
  • To cultivate the friendship in neighboring communities;

And in general to promote the welfare of all Norwood citizens, following always those policies intended to accomplish the greatest good for the greatest number.
