The chamber's unique brand of membership meetings are informal and informative, allowing business people to check out space available to open or expand companies within our region.

In partnership with the Ocean County Board of Realtors, they have dedicated a portion of their scheduled membership meetings to take place in commercial space that is currently for sale or lease.

This ground breaking way to bring potential business expansion or relocation into our area, by gathering key decision makers, entrepreneurs, and local stakeholders to view space.

There is no cost to attend, but a suggested donation of $10 to benefit The Maximilian Foundation/Hope Sheds Light.

RSVP is recommended, as space varies per location. Please call the chamber at (609) 494-7211 or email
