Last night "Dinner with Governor Baker" drew a huge crowd. Our Gov. spoke eloquently as always sharing stories about his goals for MA and sharing his history in business and government keeping everyone's attention in a full room. Thank you to our sponsor Southcoast Health for making this amazing evening possible. The unveiling of the new chamber name and logo unveiled by Gov. Baker was a long awaited reveal. The new One SouthCoast Chamber (SouthCoast Chamber & Bristol County Chamber of Commerce, Inc. combined) is the second largest chamber of commerce in MA. It was an honor to have Gov. Charlie Baker and many of our state and local government officials. Tony Cabral, Carole Fiola, Steven Howitt, Representative Elizabeth Poirier, Paul A. Schmid, Rep Bill Straus, and so many of our Community and Business leaders from across the South Coast. ... See MoreSee Less

Business After Hours last night sponsored by United Way of Greater New Bedford along with RE/MAX was a great mixer and kick-off for the United Way 2019 Campaign. It's such a great organization we'd appreciate you taking a moment to visit their page and see what they're up to and donate or volunteer. The evening kept going with prizes and networking. Several stayed for dinner and drinks afterwards as the room stayed full for quite some time. We have so many great active members.
