LIVINGSTON, NJ — To supplement its regular monthly resource breakfast for the benefit of members and potential new members, the Livingston Area Chamber of Commerce (LACC) also provides afternoon and evening networking opportunities through the monthly “After Hours” meet-up and the monthly “Lunch and Learn.”

In June, members and non-members of the Livingston, North Essex, West Orange, Millburn/Short Hills, South Orange, and Maplewood Chambers of Commerce enjoyed networking over dinner and live music at the LACC's annual “Multi-Chamber” BBQ held at Livingston Bagel. 

“Along with our regular resource breakfast meetings we have each month, we wanted to offer other times our members can come out and receive the benefits of what the chamber can offer its members,” said LACC President Ira Drucks.

The LACC’s multi-chamber networking barbecue, sponsored by Livingston Bagel, Regal Bank, George Press, Jan Press, Minuteman Press, RWJBarnabas Health, was hosted on the front patio of Livingston Bagel on June 13. 

“The BBQ was a fun networking event,” said Beth Lippman, LACC executive director. “It was a ‘Joint’ Chamber event that brought members from the surrounding chambers of commerce. It is a great opportunity for chamber members to interact and meet members of other chambers that they wouldn’t necessarily meet through their chamber meetings.”

A few days prior, the West Essex YMCA hosted the LACC's monthly resource breakfast by providing members with a full-body workout on June 8. Cheryl Francione, YMCA associate executive director, presented a demonstration of the Y’s TRX Suspension Trainer and Rip Trainer, which are combined for a workout designed to work the core muscles as well as increase strength.

“The Y breakfast was a fun, interactive event,” said Lippman. “Members had an opportunity to use the equipment and get help from the staff.”

Photos from the June events can be seen above.
