Situated as the premier business organization in the county, Commerce Chenango is also the lead source for identifying and promoting the nearly unlimited attractions the “Southern Hills of New York” have to offer, says Tourism Director Audrey Robinson.
Chenango County’s Chairman of the Board of Supervisors Richard Decker said Commerce Chenango (formerly known as the Chamber of Commerce) has produced tremendous results since it took over the official tourism duties several years ago.
“We thought it would be a good fit,” Decker said. “It’s seems to have worked out very well. They’ve done – and continue to do – a great job promoting Chenango County.”
Because of the county’s charm and scenic beauty, combined with its close proximity to other state treasures – such as Cooperstown and the Adirondacks – Robinson said local tourism opportunities have grown by leaps and bounds. To keep up with the trend and maximize the local resources, Commerce Chenango develops advertising campaigns, administers funding programs, offers promotional services, and hosts workshops and bi-monthly networking seminars to keep local tourism-oriented businesses and entrepreneurs abreast of new developments and opportunities.
