Although many businesses in the county are experiencing tough times during the coronavirus pandemic shut down, the Hunterdon County Chamber Of Commerce is using online technologies such as Zoom to continue to hold networking events.
Recently, I attended one virtual Chamber networking that was very successful with about 15 to 20 Chamber members in attendance from their homes, both on and off camera.
“We have had a great deal of success with the Hunterdon Restaurant Blitz, with more than 4000 people signing on to see which area restaurants are offering take out curbside derive,” noted Chamber President Chris Phelan.
The current pandemic shutdown impacts professional services, shifting the economy to more of a focus on home-based businesses.
“We’ve also held several Chamber Connect events, Board meetings online, and have been offering seminars on sales with Jim Boroughs,” added Phelan.
In attendance, amongst others, were Chamber President Chris Phelan, Polly Anderson (Independent Amway Dealer), Eric Lathrop (Aurora Private Wealth), Victoria Davis (Have Adding Machine Will Travel).
