MONTCLAIR, NJ - The North Essex Chamber of Commerce (NECC) is is hosting a member appreciation event on Feb. 11, to kick-off a new era of the Chamber for members and the public. The evening will include speed networking, recognition of new members and unveiling of the new NECC logo and website. In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to have a professional headshot taken. The evening is being made possible by Spencer Savings Bank, the exclusive event sponsor. 

The Chamber is beginning a new chapter of its organization with a greater focus on value for its members. An event such as this is one example. The Chamber is embracing its mission of connecting business and community through its new website. For example, in addition to the Business Directory search, there’s a quick search feature “Around Our Towns” that includes dining, shopping, entertainment, real estate, health & wellness and more. Through the website, members will be able to offer member-to member deals, and “hot deals” to the community at large. These are just a few of the new features that will be presented at this event on February 11.

“We wanted to take the time to show our appreciation for our members and share how we are providing them with new ways to make the connections they need to grow their business,” shared VP of Membership Michael Daniels. “It’s all part of the new direction that the Chamber is embracing and we’re very excited to be able to share it with our members.”

This evening event will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 pm at Montville Executive Suites, 330 Changebridge Road in Pine Brook. Refreshments will be served.
