MORRISTOWN, N.J. – A local businessman and long-time member of the 200 Club of Morris County, a non-profit organization that supports area public safety personnel, has been elected president of the group.
Randolph resident Lou Nisivoccia, founder and managing director of Nisivoccia Consulting LLC, has been involved with the 200 Club for many years, most recently as senior vice president. He has been involved with many facets of the organization’s operations, including recruiting new members and increasing public awareness of the group. The 200 Club reported that its membership rolls exceeded 1,000 members for the first time in several years.

Joining the 200 Club is a great opportunity to say thank you and we’ll be looking for new members and new opportunities to serve our protectors.”
Nisivoccia succeeds Jack Van Orden, owner of Morristown Tire Company, who is now the chairman of the board.
