The East of the River Chamber of Commerce Association (ERCCA) held a Business After Hours networking event on May 24 for all six of its member chambers at Manchester Community College's Great Path Commons – the newest section of the college's campus.

South Windsor Chamber Executive Director Shari Fiveash said she thought the event was a great way for the collective membership of the chambers to meet.

“ERCCA is a very interesting group, because with all the organizations, it has about 3,000 members,” she said. “When you factor in all the employees [of member companies], we really are a force to be reckoned with.”

Fiveash said she hopes to see ERCCA's chambers continue to do more together.

“There's power in numbers,” she said. “We've been a little dormant in the past, but we're growing”

“I think it went fine,” said Glastonbury Chamber President Mary Ellen Dombrowski. “This is a great venue and great networking. You can see there's a lot of synergy. I'd like to see it happen more often. What's great is that people don't already know each other. That's the attraction.”
