Among the concerns addressed by ONJ are burdensome taxes and regulation, out-migration of businesses and residents, and infrastructure improvements across the state. The goal of ONJ is to “rebuild and maintain an environment that encourages and supports job creation, business opportunity and an affordable New Jersey for all residents.”
Speakers at the interactive breakfast session are ONJ co-chairs Thomas Bracken, president and CEO of the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce and Michele Siekerka, Esq., president and CEO of the New Jersey Business & Industry Association (NJBIA), the nation’s largest statewide employer association representing over 20,000 member companies.
The event will feature an open discussion with Bracken and Siekerka, providing an opportunity to educate ONJ leadership to the concerns of the Somerset and Hunterdon county business communities.
