Welcome from Mayor Cantor
Welcome to West Hartford and to the website of our outstanding Chamber of Commerce that does so much to develop businesses and enhance our quality of life. The Chamber provides resources and opportunities dedicated to the development, advancement, and promotion of the professional, business, educational, civic, and cultural well-being of our town.
Our town is economically sound and strong, thanks to the efforts of many involved with the Chamber. We welcome and support our business community in West Hartford. Whether you are looking to relocate or grow here, you will find a town with safe streets, great public and private education from preschool through graduate school, easy access to high quality health care, thriving retail and business areas, fascinating cultural institutions that reflect our rich history, lots of green space, and wonderful community events to go and enjoy.
We have a tremendous quality of life in West Hartford that makes our community an ideal place to work or start a business, raise a family, and retire. We are so appreciative of prestigious national recognition that West Hartford has attracted: CNN Money Magazine ranked West Hartford #55 in the top 100 Best Places to Live in the United States and Kiplinger's Personal Finance Magazine ranked West Hartford in the Top 10 Cities of the Next Decade.
I encourage you to explore the Chamber’s many opportunities to get involved in our community. The Chamber sponsors many fun and meaningful events, like the bi-monthly Connections morning meetings, the monthly Business After Hours meetings, breakfast Seminars, the Annual Healthy West Hartford Lifestyle Fair, the Annual Meeting & Awards Ceremony, the Annual Golf Tournament, and many more.
I am proud to be West Hartford’s Mayor, the town I grew up in, the town my husband and I raised our four sons in. West Hartford is a diverse and thriving community and we hope you’ll take advantage of all it has to offer. You are always welcome in West Hartford and I hope to see you here soon.
Shari G. Cantor, Mayor
