Each year the Greater Kingston Chamber of Commerce selects Kingston’s “Person of the Year”. Our mission as a chamber is to encourage and promote the interests of the business community through definition, development and implementation of programs and services which enhance economic activity and the quality of life for the Greater Kingston Community.
Our “Person of the Year” is some one that has consistently gone “above and beyond” with their time and talents to make Kingston a great place to live, work and conduct business.

The Greater Kingston Community Chamber of Commerce is an association of business people organized to improve our community. The Chamber is an independent, non-profit corporation run by its members through an elected board of directors. It draws its strength from attracting the greatest number of businesses into membership. The Chamber organizes and directs the energy, talent and money contributed by the members into projects which improve the business climate in our community.
Without business, a vital community turns into a ghost town. It is the profitable operation of business that provides the jobs and produces the wealth to finance government, education, cultural, and charitable programs which address the needs of our community.
What Does The Chamber Do?
If you do no more than join, pay dues and thereby say, "I support the Chamber", you have increased your clout with politicians, regulators, bureaucrats, state and county departments, confirming that we speak for the community's interest. The "we" in all of this is really YOU!
