Congratulations to our 2014 Scholarship Recipients!

We would like to thank the scholarship committee for their efforts during the selection process. We had more applicants than ever and appreciate their time selecting each recipient. We would like to thank Lucille Brule (Chairman), Ed Morba, and Lisa Bendel.

We look forward to meeting our scholarship recipients at the June 11 meeting!

 

Acting Butler Chief of Police - CiroThank you to our May Guest Speaker acting Butler Police Chief Ciro Chimento

A huge thank you to Chief Chimento for his useful presentation on drug addiction & awareness.

Ciro Chimento, acting Butler Police Chief, educated the Chamber on the rise of Heroin use in local communities and how addictive it was and how the addict will stop at no length to satisfy their craving.  He talked about signs to look for if you suspect someone under the influence.  He also informed us that Morris, Passaic, Bergen and Sussex counties have joined forces to try and mitigate the problem.

 

Thank you for attending the Business Card Exchange on May 21!

We recently held a "Meet the Experts" business card exchange featuring several business development organizations such as Northwest NJ S.C.O.R.E., Small Business Development Centers of Northwest NJ, and US SBA. Thank you to all who attended. We hope to see you all again at our next event.

We also want to thank Chili's in Riverdale for working with us for this event as well as Charlie Faure from S.C.O.R.E. and Dominick Belfiore from the U.S. Small Business Association for participating in our panel of experts.
