The Chestnut Hill Business Association (CHBA) is one of the premier neighborhood business organizations in the Philadelphia region.  Its growing membership of more than 200 members includes retailers, restaurateurs, health professionals, artist galleries, Fortune 500 companies, and small business organizations from the surrounding area. The CHBA unites this diverse group of merchants and entrepreneurs, pooling resources in order to serve members and advocate for common interests.  Through a robust calendar of popular festivals, professional destination marketing campaigns that reach every corner of the region, and a variety of valuable resources, the CHBA helps all its members to achieve much more than any individual store could on its own.

Our MEMBERS PAGE is beginning this Summer as a skill-sharing space where members of our business community can provide workshops and tutorials on performing all kinds of small business-related skills.  The first of those workshops was a Social Media Workshop for Small Businesses offered by our Marketing, Events, and Social Media Coordinator, Hillary O’Carroll.

Join Us.

CHBA membership affords access to a variety of benefits that have the power to advance all aspects of a business’s operations in Chestnut Hill. Any owner or manager of a business that serves the Chestnut Hill area is welcome to apply for membership.  All applications for membership are reviewed and approved at the discretion of the CHBA’s staff. Members are encouraged to take full advantage of the resources offered through the association in order to ensure their success.
