About Us


Our Mission

The mission of the North East Area Chamber of Commerce is to serve the community by providing economic, educational and legislative information and assistance in order to maintain and enhance the community’s uniqueness and quality of life.

Our focus –

  • Community building – Our role extends deeper into the fabric of the community. We often collaborate with other community organizations for the enhancement and betterment of residents and businesses alike.
  • Tourism promotion – The Chamber is the primary tourism promotion organization in North East. We work to position North East a destination for wine and agricultural goods, recreational pursuits, shopping, dining and historical landmarks to attract visitors to the community.
  • Events – We are focused on driving individuals into our town with community centered events that span throughout the year.

The Chamber is extremely active in presenting a number of events throughout the year that support our objectives, most notably the annual Grape Country Harvest Festival – known locally as WineFest. The three day festival attracts upwards of 15,000 visitors and residents to celebrate the prolific wine industry North East.
