President`s Message

November 2014

It has been a very busy fall for the Hunterdon County Chamber of Commerce. I truly want to thank again the countless volunteer who give their time and talents to make the Hunterdon County Chamber of Commerce such a successful organization for our Business Community here in Hunterdon County. The Chamber’s Annual Golf Classic Committee put on another great outing, this year held at Hawk Pointe Golf Club.

 

September was also the launch of our third Leadership Hunterdon Class with a great dinner at the Inn at Lambertville Station. This year’s class was joined by past alumni, members of our Leadership Hunterdon Board of Trustees and community leaders. The goal of Leadership Hunterdon continues to gain traction each year and I am excited about working with this year’s class over the upcoming months.

 

In September we had the second annual Hunterdon Fest, held at Liberty Village Premium Outlets which was very well received by both the artists, musicians and businesses that participated. The goal of our event was to showcase the arts & culture that are rich and diverse here in Hunterdon County. The Committee is very much looking forward to working on this event again in 2015.

 

On October 14th we had the 26th annual Business & Home Expo. I can’t thank the Expo Committee enough their hard work. Their dedication and commitment to make the event so successful year of year is admirable. The Expo was a day filled with businesses making connections, whether they were new potential customers or reconnecting with existing relationships. The Chamber each year looks at ways we can continue to grow and improve the show. The 25 plus restaurants that participated in the event have added a whole new dimension over the past few years.

 

I hope many of you can join us on November 6th at the upcoming Hunterdon Business Awards Program. This time honored event is a wonderful celebration of the success stories of many individuals and organizations that have impacted Hunterdon County. It is also a very inspiring morning where we honor the “Amazing Kids in Business" recognizing high school students who are already in business and succeeding.

 

With best regards,
