Meghan Hunscher, president of the Morris County Chamber of Commerce, has been named to the 2021 ROI Influencers: Women in Business list, issued by the media outlet ROI-NJ. Hunscher was named to the Organizations and Associations category.
The ROI Influencers: Women in Business list recognizes women who play a significant role in shaping the New Jersey business landscape.
Hunscher has been president of the Morris County Chamber of Commerce, a business association with more than 700 member organizations, since January 2019. When the Covid-19 pandemic hit she oversaw the chamber’s shift to a virtual operation that allowed business members to remain engaged, network for business opportunities and keep their doors open, while attracting new members. Also under her purview are the chamber’s foundations, including the Business and Education Together Foundation and the Morris County Economic Development Alliance, as well as programs including Leadership Morris, Women in Business, MentorMorris, RiseMorris and ThriveMorris.
Prior to her taking the helm at the chamber, Hunscher was executive director of the Morris County Economic Development Corporation, a division of the chamber, and previously held positions as a professional planner and consultant in both the public and private sectors.
Hunscher currently sits on several nonprofit boards and committees, including the United Way of Northern New Jersey, the Community Advisory Board of Morristown Medical Center, Corporate Leadership Council of Cornerstone Family Programs and the Morris County Tourism Board. She also previously served as president of the New Jersey Association of Planning and Zoning Administrators, a statewide organization.
Hunscher is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania with both a bachelor of arts degree in urban studies/affairs and religious studies and a master’s in city and regional planning.
In announcing her listing, ROI-NJ stated, “Her position on lists such as this is long overdue. She deftly oversees one of the state’s best regional chambers.”
