The Penfield Business Chamber (PBC) began as the Penfield Business Association in 1992. During the last quarter of 2015, leaders of the Penfield Business Association met with leaders of the Penfield Chamber of Commerce to discuss combining the two organizations. It was decided that the Penfield Chamber of Commerce would no longer operate as a separate organization and would join the Penfield Business Association. To recognize this combined strength and consolidation of business resources and talent, the Penfield Business Association changed its name to the Penfield Business Chamber in the first quarter of 2016.
It is the longest-running business association in the Town of Penfield, now in its twenty-ninth year! Its 11-person Board of Directors are elected by membership. The Penfield Business Chamber joins the Rochester Business Alliance and Greece Chamber of Commerce as the only business chamber within Monroe County affiliated with the US Chamber of Commerce. The mission of the PBC is to provide advocacy, support, and promotion to businesses in and around the Penfield community.
