Thank you for visiting the website of The Asbury Park Chamber of Commerce!

The APCC is a non-profit 501c6, membership organization. Our mission, which is similar to traditional chambers of commerce, is to advocate, promote and support the success of the business community.

Of course being Asbury Park, we are unique in many ways. We consider ourselves a hybrid chamber of commerce. Our philosophy is to promote commerce, as well as stay true to the preservation what makes Asbury Park the coolest 1.4 square miles you’ll ever experience! We believe that by helping to promote art, music, diversity, the environment and humanity, Asbury Park will continue to grow as a tourism destination, as well as a wonderful and welcoming place to call home. Plus, it’s just the right thing to do.

With more than 100 years of experience, we are considered “the voice of business” by many. It’s our honor to serve our 300+ members with well-planned marketing initiatives, quality events, networking opportunities and exclusive access to engage with consumers through our social media platforms. Members also enjoy exclusive ability to market their businesses through our database, which currently boasts email addresses of nearly 9000 fans of Asbury Park!

We also communicate regularly with municipal, county and state officials, thus ensuring a continued forward trajectory in our consumer market.

Consumer or merchant, we hope that you will consider visiting soon. Please give us a call at 732-775-7676 if you have any questions. We’ll be happy to send you a Visitors Guide to help you plan your perfect Asbury Park experience!
