    2016 Monroe Chamber of CommerceWhile we do our best to ensure the accuracy of the data, due to timing and the complex nature of the production, data many not remain current. Please contact the Chamber if any updates are required.

    This publication is written and produced for the Monroe community by the Monroe Chamber of Commerce.

    Our Chamber was founded in 1966 to promote the well-bing of the business and professional community of Monroe, Connecticut and we are proud to continue that tradition today. As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Monroe Chamber of Commerce, we present you with our 2016-2017 Commemorative Keepsake Annual Directory. We invite you to read the history, browse the photos and of course, support local business.

    The Chamber Board of Directors works diligently to bring programs and events that create opportunity for businesses to get out of the office and network. We encourage anyone in the Monroe community to attend any of our Business After Hours, Lunch and Learn Educational Segments, and Morning Networking Meetings. We are also pleased to announce a unique series of educational events centered around the larger businesses coming to and surrounding the Monroe area called, Surviving the Big Box. This will be a three part series hosted by SCORE at the Edith Wheeler Memorial Library starting in September. Be sure to visit our website at www.monroectchamber.com to learn more about this and all our events.

    There are lots of great things going on in Monroe and the Chamber of Commerce is proud to be a part of them! I thank you in advance for your commitment to helping local businesses thrive and look forward to seeing you at our many special events in 2016 and beyond.

    For the last seven years, I am proud to say that the Town of Monroe has worked side by side with the Monroe Chamber of Commerce to develop a Monroe team approach with our new and expanding businesses. With the Towns involvement in the Bridgeport Regional Business Council (BRBC) and the BRBC Economic Development Committee, we have seen a recent spike of both new businesses and equally as important, the expansion of existing businesses. Our Monroe Economic Development Commission is actively communicating with our Chamber of Commerce. These groups work in collaboration with our Planning and Zoning Commission to ensure our Plan of Conservation and Development will continue to cultivate a thriving business sector that complements our distinct suburban charm. Our Land Use Group provides a means for combining existing independent departments into one large cohesive group. Through the oversight of a Land Use Director, the group has come together to function more efficiently with the common goal of processing regulatory requirements and coordinating the use and development of land throughout the Town. Monroe is desirable for its many unique economic opportunities for business creation, expansion and relocation. We are strategically located in between Interstates 95, 84 and Route 15. Our location lends us

    a strong and diverse labor force fully equipped with the necessary skills to get the job done! Monroes close proximity to major universities helps attract the finest and brightest skilled workers. One of the best kept secrets in Monroe is our growing variety of Restaurants and Delicatessens. With the large selection of culinary styles, great food is only minutes away from any area of Town. Local businesses also benefit from the attractive quality of life that Monroe offers. The Monroe school system has recently received numerous accolades being ranked among the top districts in the state and country. In addition, our public services as well as recreational areas are of the highest quality. Community events and picturesque attractions make Monroe a great place to live and an even better place to do business. We have a great sense of community to accompany our rich New England culture.
