Spring is in full swing and your chamber has not missed a beat. We are moving right into summer with an array of signature events such as our annual golf and tennis outing on Monday, June 8, and Midsummer Marketing Showcase on Tuesday, July 14.
What sets the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce apart from others? The quality of the programs we offer, designed to enhance networking opportunities and grow business; the unlimited opportunities at each event where you can share your ideas and make valuable business contacts; the excellence of our speakers who deliver messages to assist and enhance business; the dedication of our board of directors and chamber staff led by President and CEO Peter Crowley; and the continued support of our members, sponsors and volunteers.
Please join us at one or more of the following events. I promise you won’t be disappointed:
In conjunction with Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Mission, civic engagement and community involvement will be highlighted throughout the month of May. The Foundation will present the Education Committee’s annual Business Education Initiative Award to Eleanor Horne, vice president of ETS Social Investment Fund at the Monthly Membership luncheon on Thursday, May 7. Eleanor is well known in our region and is actively engaged in a number of organizations committed to improving society. Her philosophy is that community service is an obligation of living.
In addition, the foundation will present the Kristin Appelget Awards Civic Engagement Student Awards to: Rachel Gittleman, Sarah Horton, and Sarah Schulte, all of Stuart Country Day School of the Sacred Heart; Stephen Kaplan, South Brunswick High School; and Neal Bakshi, Princeton Day School.
The Kristin Appelget Civic Engagement Student Awards honors high school juniors in the region who have made outstanding contributions to their communities by civic engagement in school, religious, political and other organizations.
The focus on civic engagement continues at the Business Before Business breakfast meeting on Monday, May 20, as we welcome Hugh Price, John L. Weinberg/ Goldman Sachs visiting professor of public and international affairs at Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University. Price will speak about “Urban School Reform: Thinking — and Looking — Outside the Box.”
Join us for a “Five-Star Networking Event” on Tuesday, May 12, as we welcome Ruth’s Chris Steak House to the Princeton region. Take the time after your business day ends to stop by Ruth’s Chris in Princeton Forrestal Village to see why the chamber’s popular Business After Business networking events are the focal point for business people to meet, relax and promote their business.
Don’t miss the chance to get away from the board room and join local business leaders at our annual golf and tennis outing at Greenacres Country Club. This signature event is a sell-out each year, so don’t delay in signing up.
With nearly 50 years of supporting business, your chamber continues to be a platform to do business. Your chamber is your voice and your comments and suggestions are always welcome. We look forward to helping you create the “stimulus package” you need to help your business grow.
Sincerely, Lawrence H. Krampf
