“I whole-heartedly recommend joining the North Jersey Chamber of Commerce for any business or business owner who desires a friendly, helpful, and relationship-focused organization.

I took my time assessing the NJCC before joining because I’ve been disappointed in the past with groups who say one thing when they’re recruiting you – and being different after you join. In short order, I was able to see the sincerity, enthusiasm, and pay-it-forward character traits of this chamber. Once I joined, I became one of the NJCC’s biggest fans and got active by attending the events and volunteering.

Within my first 6 months at the NJCC, the new business I gained paid for my membership for the next 10 years!  If you’re a relational business or business owner, this chamber will support, encourage, and grow your business with you.”

- Christine Clifton, Owner, Mindful Business Matters, Madison, NJ

“Our firm has been a Chamber member since 1994.  The most important insight on membership I can provide is to be actively involved.  Volunteer your time, attend an event, join a committee.  Business, socializing, lasting friendships.  The benefits depend solely upon your efforts and can be exponential to the modest financial investment.”

- Robert B. Puleo, Partner, Dorfman Abrams Music, LLC, Saddle Brook,NJ

“Membership in the North Jersey Chamber of Commerce has not only helped grow my business, but has provided engaging events to blend business networking with entertainment and fun.  The professional relationships I have generated through the chamber transformed into long standing friendships.  When you attend an event, it feels more akin to going out with a group of friends since you will never feel stranded or alone.  Members make it a point to introduce new people to their friends and business colleges to make them feel appreciated and welcome.

This is not your “hand your business card to 50 people and hope for the best” kind of organization.  The mentality of North Jersey Chamber members is one of introductions and professional growth.  When we meet a new person, the first thing that comes to mind is “who can I introduce this person to?”.  It is this thought process that makes members the North Jersey Chamber of Commerce exceptional and successful.”

- Jay Reynolds, Hanson & Ryan, Totowa, NJ

“I was fairly new to networking when I joined the NJCC just over a year ago. To say I was nervous would be an understatement. After one event, I felt like I’d been around forever. Since then I have met great people, gotten some wonderful clients, and have also gained trusted resources that I can feel comfortable referring to others. My professional network has grown tremendously since joining NJCC. I would highly recommend it.”
