About Us

The Greater Ocean Township Chamber of Commerce

Founded in 1985, the Greater Ocean Township Chamber of Commerce is a member based non-profit organization that represents and promotes the business community in the Township of Ocean and surrounding area.

We serve as a liaison between the local business community, state and local government and nearby business organizations and chambers.

Also known as the GOTCC, we are devoted to providing networking, educational and promotional opportunities aimed at increasing business for our members; and giving back to our community by sponsoring and participating in social and outreach programs and events.

Our signature event, The Annual Awards and Installation Luncheon honors deserving local high school seniors with scholarships to offset the burden of higher education. The funds are raised through a series of programs and events including the popular Comedy Night and gift auction held each November.

GOTCC welcomes members from the Greater Ocean Township area. This includes businesses in Asbury Park, Bradley Beach, Deal, Elberon, Eatontown, Long Branch, Neptune, Neptune City,  Ocean Grove, Ocean Twp. Shrewsbury, Tinton Falls, West Long Branch and beyond.
