BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The Suburban Chamber of Commerce will host its next Berkeley Heights networking meeting at 8 a.m. on June 17 at the Town Hall Chamber Room at 29 Park Ave. in Berkeley Heights. 

The members had asked for a localized event for the Berkeley Heights business community -- and the Suburban Chamber of Commerce answered by organizing a free monthly event as an opportunity for members and those considering membership to network and to stay informed and to get involved with all that is happening in the greater community. 

Nearly forty businesses were represented at last month's breakfast, sponsored by Woodward Properties. The attendees represented a diverse group of local business owners, independent contractors and practitioners.
