The Emmaus Main Street Partners (EMSP) is a 501c3 non-profit corporation founded in 1995 with the purpose of preserving and revitalizing the historic downtown district of Emmaus. Since then, the scope of the program’s reach has grown to include the entire Borough of Emmaus. The EMSP is a member supported organization serving over 600 businesses and 12,000 residents of Emmaus.
In late 2012, the Emmaus Main Street Partners entered into partnership with the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce to support the economic vitality of the Emmaus community. The partnership provides greater reach and great strength for both organizations and provides the Emmaus and Lehigh Valley communities greater opportunities and benefits.
Emmaus is rich in character, culture and history. The EMSP works hard to maintain these qualities while promoting economic stability. Working with several community groups and the Borough of Emmaus, the EMSP assists in the research and study of local issues, the development of effective plans and goals, and the implementation of action items necessary for a healthy economic, residential and business environment.
The EMSP is governed by a 20 member Board of Directors. The board consists of an Executive Committee, an Organization Committee, a Design Committee, a Promotions Committee, an Economic Development Committee and 15 sub-committees. Sub-committees may also include board members.
