Chamber of Commerce

As the Ken-Ton Chamber continues our quest to actively pursue and implement innovative benefits and services that will propel the Ken-Ton Chamber to higher levels, we have forged a stronger alliance with the Town of Tonawanda and Village of Kenmore governments, the Kenmore Village Improvement Society and the Kenmore Merchants Association. It is our goal to continue to work closely with all of these organizations and various service groups that operate within our borders, in an effort to bring more exposure and awareness to our great neighborhood.

The Chamber exists to represent you, the member. Please keep in mind that your input and ideas are not only welcome, but encouraged. It is our job to see that you get the most out of your investment with the Chamber. At whatever level you choose to actively participate, even if it’s simply attending a member luncheon, you will come to appreciate what the Chamber can do for you and understand why “Our benefits mean business!”

As we work to increase membership in the chamber, we also look to provide even more tangible benefits for all of our existing members. Please review the following outline of exclusive chamber member benefits:
