News and notes from the Town of Huntington.

The Huntington Township Chamber of Commerce is creating a new Multicultural Business Committee designed to increase new business relationships and opportunities within the multicultural sector of business. The committee will also focus on the increasing growth of the multicultural segment within business and professional communities.

“We are excited about establishing this new Multicultural Business Committee and feel that it will have a significant impact and serve as a vital resource and tool within Long Island’s business community,” said Larry Kushnick, Huntington Chamber vice chairman.

The committee’s first meeting will take place on April 30 at 8:30 a.m. at the Chamber office located at 164 Main St. in Huntington.

The Committee is open to all multicultural businesses and professionals and for those interested in participating or learning more about doing business with multicultural businesses.  For more information, please call Linda Mitchell at the Chamber office at 631-423-6100.
