"It was very important to me to find professional networking opportunities that would quickly yield results for Integrity Staffing Solutions. My decision to join the MIDJersey Chamber was solely based upon their powerful footprint within the NJ business community. I chose to not only join the Chamber, but also become very active in one of their committees early on, which has brought tremendous value."
– Topaza Watkins-Edmond, Business Development Manager, Integrity Staffing Solutions
"Being a new business owner and looking into expanding, I didn't know much beforehand about how to do so. A friend suggested that I contact a local Chamber of Commerce for support and growth, and I am so glad that I did. The MIDJersey Chamber of Commerce has been a supportive haven for me, providing a continuous flow of support, business contacts, and more. I made my introduction at a Chamber breakfast in late 2017, and I was immediately flooded with connections and new opportunities. It was so overwhelming! Most importantly, however, I've developed lifelong friends. Jodi Grinwald in particular has been incredible in not only acting as a liaison between me and other opportunities, but I can count her as a great friend now too. Because of her, I was connected with and now have a future client and invaluable business connections. The MIDJersey Chamber of Commerce has provided me with a wealth of opportunities and friendships that I am so grateful for, and I can't wait to see what else lies in store in the future!"

"I became involved with the Chamber almost 10 years ago, when I was a new banker to the region. I specifically joined the Young Professionals Connective (YPC) and the Hamilton Chapter to get acquainted with the business community, and to grow my professional network. Over the course of the years, this Chamber has brought me countless opportunities and connections, and I am now the Membership Committee Chair, where I now can help new members get the most from their Chamber involvement. This Chamber really does care about its members and the community. I’m proud to be so involved and be able to give back."
– Christina Spinelli, Vice President, Relationship Manager Berkshire Bank
"Our company joined the Chamber to help facilitate our growth into Central New Jersey and develop some key relationships. It turned out that the MIDJersey Chamber was the right organization to invest in. We have grown our business with the commitment we made to the Chamber and the community. MIDJersey provides outstanding community involvement with strong relationships, valuable events and healthy advocacy and we continue to expand our involvement within the Chamber. We live together, work together, and when the Chamber continues to grow and succeed, so do we."
– Paul Boyer, Managing Partner, Ancero
"It has been a pleasure to work with the Chamber over the last few years, including serving as Chair of the Hispanic Business Council (HBC) for the last two. HBC is a much-needed resource for our region, bringing both Hispanic and non-Hispanic business professionals together through networking and education."
– Dana Rodriguez, Personal Lines Sales Supervisor, NJM Insurnace Group
"I have always felt a strong connection to the MIDJersey Chamber of Commerce and their wonderful magazine. The Chamber has meant so much to the businesses and nonprofits by telling their stories. My warmest memories come from a picture of me in the 1968 magazine showing me in my Bordentown Military Institute uniform and later on the cover in 1990 when I became the first African American mayor of my hometown, Trenton. Thank you MIDJersey Chamber of Commerce for always being here for Mercer county citizens and a cadet at B.M.I. with ambitions of being mayor of Trenton one day. "
–Former Trenton Mayor Doug Palmer
"Having been either a Chamber member, Board member, Committee Chair or Committee Member, as well as having served in leadership roles during the past three and a half decades, it has truly been a rewarding and fruitful experience! I would conservatively estimate that at least two-thirds of all my business and client relationships over the years are a direct result of connecting with individuals and institutions through Chamber events and activities. Many of those relationships continue to be valuable and cherished to this day!”
–Donald J. Loff, CIMA®, Senior Vice President, Senior Consultant, Bank of America Merrill Lynch / The Loff Warringer Group
"PSE&G executives have always been very engaged in Chamber activities and we’ve sponsored the Annual Awards Gala and helped out on the awards selection committee many times. I always recommend that Chamber members attend as many events as they can and pursue leadership roles as they’re going to get out of it what they put into it. If you dip your toe in, maybe you’ll meet a few people. If you take the knee-deep approach, like we do, the benefits are limitless.”
–Frank Lucchesi, Regional Public Affairs Manager, PSE&G
"Rider University has been a member since 1918 and we’ve joined forces with the Chamber in many ways over the past century. More and more employers clearly see the value of a college education and our job, as a learning institution, is to increase the number of educated people in our community to serve local businesses. The more that we can partner with the business community, the better it will be for everyone.”
–Dr. Gregory Dell’Omo, President, Rider University
