"We had historically defined our area as along Rte. 9 from Westborough to Natick," said the chamber's president and CEO, Bonnie Biocchi, but have had more and more members joining from towns outside that traditional boundary.
"It seemed silly," she said, to continue considering those businesses as outsiders, when they were becoming a larger part of the chamber's base.
Thursday's announcement doesn't change the organization's overall services, she added, "we'll just try to strengthen our relationships in those communities."

Boosting the creative economy, including the region's arts businesses and organizations, is one of several initiatives Chamber President and CEO Bonnie Biocchi told Daily News editors Monday her organization is working on as the region recovers from the recession. Biocchi also highlighted efforts to reduce health insurance costs, lower vacancy rates and better train workers with skills employers need.
...
Biocchi said after several years where many small businesses did close, "we're starting to see some stabilization. We're starting to see (businesses) hiring people and investing in new product lines. That I think is an exciting thing."
She said the region has a challenge attracting workers because it is so close to Boston. Focusing on the creative economy through efforts such as the last week's forum and the MetroWest Tourism and Visitors Bureau, which the chamber supports, will help businesses in that sector while promoting the region's amenities to prospective workers, Biocchi said.
On health care, Biocchi said the chamber has worked on tiered health insurance plans, which offer reduced costs when patients use local hospitals instead of going into Boston.
...
Chamber staff are also focused on closing a gap in people trained for middle-skilled jobs such as lab technicians by connecting employers with community colleges to ensure students are being taught skills in demand, Biocchi said.
"The role the chamber can play in this is reaching out to the larger businesses and saying 'What (skills) do you really need?'" she said.

Biocchi said MassBay Community College may start teaching courses developed from employer feedback in January.
The chamber, meanwhile, is seeking grant funding to help with middle-skilled jobs initiative and hopes to have a job bank on-line by the end of the year to match workers to employers, she said.

Biocchi highlighted ways the chamber has worked with town government, funding economic development assessments for Framingham, Natick, Westborough and Southborough that should help towns fill vacant properties.
