The Council’s mission is to address legislative issues that may impact the businesses of Nassau County and to prioritize and pursue those issues at the appropriate level of government using various forms of media and lobbying.
Remembering Sylvia Chertow
It is with great sadness that we, at the Nassau Council of Chambers announce the death of our esteemed colleague, Sylvia Chertow. She was a founding member of the Council in 1979 and a strong supporter of “downtown shopping” at a time when the only competition was the Mall and Flea Markets. Her pet peeve was the lack of parking for shoppers in the downtowns. She worked tirelessly with elected officials to create sufficient parking spaces. Sylvia was a Past President, Legislative Chairperson and chaired every Nominating Committee. She was the Executive Director of the Rockville Center Chamber and served as Board Member on many civic and religious organizations located there. She will forever be in our hearts. Her memory will lead us forward with our “Shop Local” Campaign.

We are an extension of local chambers and volunteers dedicated to promoting, protecting and encouraging the success of Nassau County’s business community.

The Council stays abreast of local, regional and state issues that impact the business community.
We are a volunteer organization dedicated to addressing workable solutions. When commerce remains strong and vibrant all people of Nassau County benefit.

Local businesses need local staff; it is that simple. By shopping locally, you are helping the shops and companies in your community to grow, which in turn leads to increased revenue, higher recruitment and more career opportunities opening up for everyone. Look at it this way: $10 million spent at local businesses generates 57 new jobs. The same amount spent at an online retailer like Amazon creates just 13 jobs.
