Greater Toms River Chamber of Commerce

The Greater Toms River Chamber of Commerce leverages our coastal beauty and rich history to drive a new era of economic innovation and growth. Our mission is to accelerate the economic development of our vibrant coastal community by actively supporting, retaining and attracting local business owners and national industry leaders.

In order for us to achieve these goals, our involvement and participation in activities that create jobs and promote the development of existing businesses is essential. Equally important is our knowledge of public policy and legislative/regulatory issues, and our partnerships with government, military, health care and educational sectors.
