The Winnetka-Northfield Chamber of Commerce was formed in 2011 after the merger of two active and vibrant chambers: the Winnetka Chamber of Commerce and the Northfield Chamber of Commerce.
“The mission of the Winnetka-Northfield Chamber of Commerce is to promote economic growth, development, and involvement in the local business and civic communities.”
The Winnetka-Northfield Chamber of Commerce is over 350 members strong and growing. The combined membership affords its members more services, a larger presence and a stronger voice in the community.
Within each district – Hubbard Woods, West Elm, East Elm, Indian Hill and Northfield– there is pride and commitment to providing quality, value, expertise and personalized customer service. As Winnetka and Northfield’s leading business advocate, the Winnetka-Northfield Chamber of Commerce welcomes you.
Northfield is the best of worlds, a thriving, desirable suburb and a village with hometown charm. Incorporated in 1926 and located 20 miles from the heart of Chicago’s loop. With a population of approximately 5,700 attracts those looking for a small-town way of life near large city.
The Village of Winnetka features tree-lined streets, sandy beaches, renowned schools, outstanding parks, quality recreational facilities, a centralized community house, local non-profit organizations, and numerous houses of worship. The Village of Winnetka features four distinct shopping districts: Hubbard Woods, East Elm, West Elm and Indian Hill. As its name suggests Winnetka is truly a “beautiful land.”
The Village of Northfield is a home rule municipality governed by a Village president and six trustees (the “Village Board”).
The President of the Board of Trustees is elected for a four year term and serves as the chief elected official of the Village and presides at all Board of Trustees meetings and ceremonial occasions.
Winnetka has a Council-Manager form of government.
Council meetings are held in the Village Hall Council Chamber at 7:30 in the evening on the first and third Tuesday of each month. Agendas are available at the library or on this web site. A portion of every council meeting is set aside to hear comments from Winnetka residents regarding any Village issue.
