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, art galleries, Fortune 500 companies, and small business organizations from the surrounding area. The CHBA unites this diverse group of merchants and entrepreneurs, pooling resources to serve members and advocate for common interests. Through a robust calendar of popular festivals, professional destination marketing campaigns that reach every region, and various valuable resources, the CHBA helps all its members achieve much more than any individual business could accomplish by itself.
