Mark Kleinschmidt
President of the New Castle County
Chamber of Commerce.
Program: New Castle County Chamber and Business Grow Together.
The Chamber was first organized as the Newark Chamber of Commerce
way back in 1922 and since that time we have grown to become the
leading business organization in the area. The Chamber has been so
successful for the last 95 years because of their ability to connect
their members to their next customer. With that in mind, the NCC Chamber
would like to invite you to check out the 2017 Program and Membership
Guide to see all the different activities, programs and services they
provide to their members. Come join us at noon, June 21, 2017 at
12:00 in the Hotel DuPont and learn what you and the NCC Chamber
may have in common.
