“Spotlight on the Ulster County Regional Chamber of Commerce"

Each week Chamber President Ward Todd sits down with a member of the Ulster Chamber of Commerce to talk about their business or organization. From small Main Street businesses, to large corporations and even not-for-profit organizations, each has a story to tell about their success and the contribution they’re making in the Ulster County Region.

Special thanks to the following Hudson Valley Radio Stations for donating their air time to allow the chamber to promote our members and the great work they’re doing in our community.
