As of September 11th, I’ll be taking the helm as your new Executive Director. I look forward to meeting with you and getting the opportunity to listen to your ideas as we move forward and build the Chamber into something bigger and better than ever!
Imagine the combined brain-power of the businesses throughout the county being harnessed by one central organization! That is what the Chamber is all about – the business of business! It’s not just networking and marketing to each other, although that is an important part of chamber membership. It’s also the combined resources and sharing of business ideas, innovations and information that will make every business stronger.
The Monmouth Regional Chamber of Commerce (MRCC) has so much to offer, but like a ClubMed vacation, you can do as much or as little as you like. As you look through this website, you’ll find lots of committees and events that are worthy of your time. Get involved! You will find, as I have in my first week, that everyone you meet is extremely inviting and friendly! We’re all here for the same reason, to strengthen and grow our businesses. Whether it’s making new contacts and developing new friendships that may one day be new clients, or sharing a new idea that will help another business, or attending a session that will empower you or give you a new perspective, the MRCC offers endless possibilities. All you have to do is get involved!
You’ll start seeing changes on this website in the coming weeks. This website can be a powerful tool for all of us, and a resource for your business. The blog pages will now start to include guest speakers from the PERK breakfasts, the membership at large, and guest speakers from our events. Perhaps you’d like to post a blog about something new and exciting in your industry? Just let me know. The MRCC is here to serve you!
Please feel free to reach out to me at the office here in Freehold. I really want to hear from you. I’ll be putting together a survey in the near future to learn more about what YOU want from the MRCC. This is your organization, run by a very energetic, talented bunch of volunteers. The possibilities are endless, and I’m excited to be a part of what will be an amazing adventure together!
