Beverly chamber goes regional


Those three communities do not have their own chamber of commerce.

“For us, it kind of makes sense because we’re that close,” Somes said. “We want to be able to service them as if they’re just down the street. A lot of people are looking for that support system.”

Hamilton Bookkeeping owner Liz Silva said she joined the Beverly chamber when she started her business 10 years ago. She has grown from a one-person business to one with five employees.

“They have so many small-business things you can attend,” she said. “If you’re starting a business, you can go and hand out your business card. Everybody’s welcoming. They were really instrumental in helping me grow.”
