The North Jersey Chamber of Commerce is a mid-sized non-profit business organization concentrating on providing its members with substantial opportunities to GROW their business, SAVE money on products and services, and CONNECT with thousands of North Jersey’s Finest Business Leaders.
With several business & networking organizations present, what makes the North Jersey Chamber different?
To start, our members refer to us as the effective, business-oriented chamber with a relaxed and enjoyable spin. This business environment allows members and guests to be themselves and network “naturally.”
This type of environment allows our members to INSTANTLY build business relationships while allowing themselves to NETWORK beyond the one on one relationship. It allows relationship building for each party to TRUST and CONNECT their sphere of influence. The multitude of networking and marketing opportunities offered allows this technique to develop “naturally” on its own.
The North Jersey Chamber focuses on the development of long-term relationship-building, stemmed from the business mindset of paying-it-forward. Our positive and relaxed networking environment allows our members to refrain from the everyday sales pitch, allows the foundation of building business connections to process on their own.
Our membership continues to grow on a daily basis because of this culture created. To date, we represent over 165 cities, representing 13 counties throughout Northern New Jersey. The growing seed reflects upon how our members see, feel, and most importantly, develop their circle of the professional network each day.
