About

Our Mission

The Glen Rock Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1985 in order to represent the retail and professional business community in Glen Rock, New Jersey. The mission of the Glen Rock Chamber is twofold: to help promote and connect local and member businesses and organizations; and to support and give back to Glen Rock, NJ in order to enrich the quality of life in our Bergen County community.

The Chamber helps to promote local businesses by sponsoring annual street fairs, business networking and educational activities, and seasonal events and promotions. We also give back to the community by awarding an annual scholarship to a Glen Rock High School senior who has excelled in business studies.
