The goal of the Copiague Chamber of Commerce is to provide area business owners, potential business owners, and providers of professional services with information about the needs and opportunities within the community. From our central location we can provide information and resources available in the Town of Babylon and within the hamlet of Copiague. It has a diverse population of 26,000 plus with over 90% home ownership which provides a unique opportunity for economic growth and business activity.

Our South Shore location, with a 55 minute train ride to NYC and excellent housing stock, are additional incentives for business and business people to settle here.

Copiague residents have access to ocean and bay beaches, sport fishing, boating and many other outdoor activities. Copiague is the site of the largest public park within the Township and hosts many spectator and exhibition events. The Copiague Public Schools have a complete K-12 enrollment with a high level of academic success among its students who also provide a suitable population for entry-job applicants. The Chamber maintains liaison with the Copiague High School Guidance Department who can assist in screening applicants for employment in the community.

The Copiague Memorial Public Library is celebrated in the region for its outstanding programs and is located on a two acre site within walking distance to the spot where George Washington stayed during his tour of Long Island during the Revolutionary War.

The Copiague Chamber of Commerce will attempt to promote an awareness campaign within the community to:

  1. Provide "start-up" information from local business, lawyers, accountants and other professional Chamber members.
  2. Identify and match community needs and opportunities while encouraging existing businesses/services, etc. to diversify and occupy existing vacant facilities.
  3. Develop and promote networking among the local business/service establishments.
  4. Combine and coordinate beautification projects and civic events among community organizations to enhance our hamlet's public image and increase residents' pride.
  5. Develop and maintain a Copiague Chamber of Commerce Web site to promote business in Copiague.
  6. Provide information regarding compliance with local laws and ordinances for potential businesses while acting as liaison with State, County and Town governmental officials.
  7. Continue efforts with Suffolk County and the Town of Babylon officials to develop and beautify our downtown area.
  8. Encourage the Copiague Public School District to develop among students an awareness of the business community and its importance in career pursuits through work/study programs for high school students. Diploma credit through a high school work/study program is a reality via specific training opportunities. Copiague High School has had great success in the Vocational/Industrial Cooperative program (VICA) and the Distributive Educational Cooperative program (DECA) sponsored by the New York State Department of Education.
  9. "MARKET" Copiague as a great community in which to live and trumpet its economic appeal to any new business assessing its success potential here. Copiague is on the march and its Chamber of Commerce is in step toward a quality lifestyle with positive business awards.

The Chamber's office will centralize all activities enumerated above. Residents and the general public will enjoy a single source of identifying and locating business/service merchant referrals and future events. Visitors can be directed to local sites of interest along with recreational amenities and fine dining. Potential business developers will have a place to meet fellow business owners, visit business sites and establish communication to assist economic planning.

Your input and/or ideas for other productive uses for our Chamber's office and Web site are welcome.
