2016… What a year, we started off the year by moving from our office of eight years on High Street, to brand new space on Rowan Boulevard in Glassboro.
Throughout the course of 2016, with the help of our Board of Directors, membership and the business community at large we updated our 3 year strategic plan. The focus has stayed on four core areas; our Business Model, People, Marketing & Technology.
Our Business Model
Through these opportunities and by sticking to the plan we saw our gross revenue go up by 20% in 2016. Allowing us the ability to provide more business development & educational opportunities for our members.
We continue to look at our model to make sure we stay competitive and affordable and provide services that are based on our member’s needs.
Over the past two years we have been working to create the South Jersey Business Institute. Through SJBI we can one stop clearing house to both the business and academic community for
SJBI is about assisting our partners in helping to build the best workforce on all levels to attract and retain the best companies.
Last but not least are all the volunteers who help make our Chamber the best it can be. We cannot do what we do without you
I would like to conclude by first thanking our membership for all the support they have provided the Chamber, we are here because of you and for you. I would also like to thank all the sponsors for their generous support in 2016; we cannot host events like this without you.
We are so excited for the future, because of you we have a plan. We will continue to grow and improve. As always, we are here because of you and for you and we are honored to serve.
On behalf of the Board of Directors, and myself we would like to thank each and every one of you for your continued support.
