The Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce would like to invite the business community, civic leaders and general public to be a part of our Business Awards Celebration marking 26 years of highlighting and honoring local business owners and operators who demonstrate service, commitment and opportunity above and beyond their peers. Since 1991, local companies have been recognized by the Membership Services Committee of the Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce in a variety of categories.


The Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce is adding the new category of Arts & Culture to our annual business awards and we are thrilled to recognize Creative Haverhill as our first recipient of the Business of the Year for Arts & Culture.

“Arts and Culture is an important facet to any community’s success and is often the fuel for community and economic development.  Cities today are competing to attract businesses and individuals by touting their cultural vibrancy. Creative Haverhill fosters cultural vibrancy.” Said Beverly Donovan, President and CEO of the Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce.


This year, the group extends a hearty congratulations to the 2016-2017 Business Award winners who will be honored at our Annual Business Awards Breakfast on February 3, 2017. Each December the Membership Services Committee selects award winners from the membership in an effort to highlight outstanding business achievements, noteworthy community contribution and exceptional industry performance across a variety of trades.
