Established in 1992, the Brookhaven Chambers of Commerce Coalition (BCCC) is a chamber-orientated organization that unites all of the chamber of commerces in the Town of Brookhaven. Our mission is to exchange ideas, network, promote our businesses, and act in a unified manner when addressing issues that affect our communities and businesses.
The BCCC meets on the first Wednesday of each month. Guests are welcome to attend the meetings. Meetings are held at the Brookhaven Town Offices in Farmingville, in the Economic Development Conference Room, 2nd floor, at 8AM.
