Greetings From Our
President

I am honored and excited to serve as the President of the Hempstead Chamber of Commerce. The Hempstead Chamber works as a team to improve the economic development of our community. We plan to work with the Incorporated Village of Hempstead government, Hempstead Community Development Agency, County and Town officials, Nassau Chamber of Commerce, the African American and Hispanic Chambers of Commerce, local businesses, and many more. The Chamber will provide our members with relevant events, promote networking, and business educational workshops. Our goal is to advocate on behalf of our business community.

I have been the CEO of Unique in Home, a home care agency, for over 8 years. I am also a board member of the Nassau Council Chamber of Commerce. As an active member on the NCCC board, I can share resources with the Hempstead Chamber, helping our Incorporated Village of Hempstead businesses.

The Hempstead Chamber of Commerce objective is to advance the commercial, financial, industrial, and civic needs and interests of the Village of Hempstead. Through membership in the Chamber, you are investing in your own welfare and success. We all invite residents and youth to join to help improve our community. Finally, please continue to encourage our residents to always shop local. Thank you.
