    The Great North Woods is an extraordinary region that is richly diverse and complex. Traveling along the banks of the Connecticut and Ammonoosuc Rivers, one sees a unique blending of history with current economic development. Whether you’re an old friend, a new friend, or considering moving your business to the area, you will find the Northern Gateway Regional Chamber of Commerce (NGRCC) is the premier business advocacy organization in Coos County. 

    Organized in 1958, our Chamber of Commerce focuses its efforts primarily on the ten communities of Lancaster, Whitefield, Dalton, Randolph, Jefferson, Groveton/Northumberland, Stark and Stratford, NH as well as Lunenburg and Guildhall, VT.

    We provide members with marketing opportunities, professional development and networking opportunities and so much more. Our office and website make hundreds of referrals each year by providing potential customers and clients with information about your business.

    A direct benefit of your membership is having the Chamber’s board of directors, committees, and staff working with and for you to make this region a better place in which to do business. The Chamber encourages all members to be involved in events or programs and to provide input on the direction and focus of our activities.

    If you have any questions about the region or the NGRCC’s program of work, please contact us. We are working hard every day to support the progress of this already fabulous community.

  • During Covid -19 take the Northern Gateway Hiking Challange!

    The Center has helped the Northern Gateway Chamber of Commerce create a map and brochure to promote its new hiking challenge program, which the Chamber will formally launch at its annual meeting March 21. 

    The Northern Gateway Hiking Challenge is a collection of hikes in or near Lancaster, N.H., designed to highlight the town’s special location at the edge of the White Mountains and to encourage outdoor recreation. Download a PDF of the map and brochure.

    Directions to all the Challenge hikes start from the Great North Woods Welcome Center at 25 Park Street in Lancaster, N.H. Participants can earn an award patch for completing the Challenge by submitting photographs of themselves at the top of each of the peaks. The Chamber will be distributing printed copies of the map and brochure.
