Mayor and Council Recognize Chamber for Commitment to Motto, “Connecting Commerce and Community”

Dear Community, 

As I look back on my past three years as president of the Livingston Area Chamber of Commerce, I think about a Chamber that was becoming stale and unproductive.

With the assistance of Beth Lippman, the chamber’s Executive Director, we devised a plan to start having our monthly resource networking breakfasts at member locations as opposed to the same location every month.

We started this program in 2014 with a meeting at Jan Press Photo Studio and every month ever since, we have networked at different business locations throughout the Township of Livingston. This new way of networking caught on and created a buzz and we have had an average of 30+ attendees at each event as opposed to the small groups that we had prior to the change.

I also look back to this past year’s Chamber Awards Dinner, where the chamber honored Livingston Bagel as Business of the Year; Louis Urban as Business person of the Year; Marie Bennett as Citizen of the Year; Helen Flores as Civic Leader of the Year; Ed Chedister, Livingston Firefighter Department; Officer Donna Majuri, Livingston Police Department; Scott Bart, Livingston First Aid Squad; and Cynthia Healy, Livingston Board of Education. (See story HERE.) The event was the best-attended chamber event to date with 230 people honoring great people in town.

I hope that the business owners in town that may not be an active member of our chamber come out to our next event and consider becoming involved. I hope that the Livingston residents consider shopping here locally in town, as our town’s stores, restaurants, and business owners are the best in the area. Our goal in the chamber is to promote business amongst each other. Shop Livingston!

I leave the chamber in the capable hands of Margie Heller of St. Barnabas Medical Center as our incoming president and look forward to assisting her in keeping our chamber moving in a positive direction. 

Happy Holiday and a Happy and Prosperous 2017.

Monte Ehrenkranz, President

Livingston Area Chamber of Commerce
