Welcome to the Farmington Chamber of Commerce and to our community.

The Farmington Chamber of Commerce understands that in order to have a strong economic environment you must have a strong community. We are truly blessed in our community to have leaders, business owners, educators and citizens who realize that we all share in the responsibility of creating economic success and happiness within our community.

As the 2017-2018 Chamber President and local business owner, I am honored to work alongside our dedicated Board who all share the same mission, “business and community leaders working together to advance the economic development and civic well-being of our community.”  We are a board with innovative ideas, a sincere respect for our community and a commitment to prosperity.

The Farmington Chamber is affiliated with the Central Connecticut Chambers of Commerce and is a strategic partner with the MetroHartford Alliance. As a result, membership in the Farmington Chamber grows beyond our town lines reaching businesses regionally and across the state. Members now have the opportunity to participate in other towns’ Chamber events.

Join our approximately 300 local business leaders as they pool their skills, talents and resources to drive and support continued business growth and community improvements.

In Service,

Phillip J. Chabot

About Farmington

The town of Farmington was incorporated in 1645. Known as the “Mother Town”, Farmington was partitioned into the towns of Avon, Bristol, Plainville, New Britain, Berlin, Southington, and Burlington. This history is reflected in the Town Seal. Today, Farmington comprises 28.7 square miles along the Farmington River. Farmington is a residential suburb in the Hartford Metropolitan area that has retained its distinctive character through maintenance of its historic districts and careful land usage for the future. Farmington has a Council-Manager form of government with a Council Chairperson as the chief elected official and a Town Manager as the Chief Executive Officer.
