Upcoming Community Events

Whether you live, work or are visiting our beautiful region, the Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce offers a wealth of resources! 

From the Three Rivers Community of Franklin to the shores of Alton Bay, north to Holderness where On Golden Pond
 was filmed to the spectacular mountaintop setting of the historic Castle in the Clouds in Moultonborough, we hope you enjoy the sparkling lakes that surround including Squam, Newfound, Winnisquam, Opechee, Webster, Winnipesaukee and the majestic mountains that overlook them. The Lakes Region is comprised of diverse communities filled with thriving businesses, unique charm, diverse lodging options, year-round activities and events, and breathtaking scenic beauty.

Chamber Committees

Each year we have several working committees assisting our staff in delivering the many programs and services we provide our members. Our committees are made up of fellow chamber members who volunteer their time and efforts to make this organization stronger.  If you are interested in participating on a committee, please either contact the Committee Chair directly or any Chamber staff member.

This committee coordinates our Business After Hours events in cooperation with the Chamber staff. This committee also welcomes our newest members into the Chamber and works on getting members involved. They meet on a monthly basis.
