Our robust programming and events calendar offers a host of opportunities throughout the year for networking and professional development. We offer reduced event fees and other exclusive benefits to our Chamber members, including FREE admission to our annual holiday party as well as opportunities to speak and educate fellow members at networking events. In addition to JTCC-exclusive events, the Chamber also participates in several multi-chamber networking events throughout the year, which give our members the chance to connect with business professionals in neighboring areas and further expand their networks.
- Networking Lunch: Throughout the year, we host networking luncheons at a one of several member restaurants. Attendees have opportunities to make new connections, share information regarding their businesses, perfect elevator pitches, boost their professional knowledge and learn new skills, and develop new referral sources. The cost is $25 for non-members and $20 for members.
- Annual Holiday Party: Held each year at one of our member restaurants this popular annual event is completely FREE to Chamber members! We ask each attendee to bring a bag of non-perishable groceries for our annual Food Drive, which benefits local food pantries. The event includes a full sit-down dinner, cash bar, music, and, of course, plenty of networking opportunities! This event is $20 for non-members.
- Annual Awards Dinner: Held annually in April, our sit-down awards dinner celebrates all our members while offering special recognition for the local Business of the Year and Educator of the Year. In addition, we present the President’s Public Service Awards to celebrate the community-minded efforts of local business professionals and organizations. We also present our annual scholarship award, which is given to a Jefferson Township student who plans to pursue an education in business. As with all our Chamber events, networking opportunities abound! Cost is $50 members, $60 for non-members.
- Network on the Water: Our most popular event of the year, Network on the Water is an outdoor event held annually in June at Bridge Marina on beautiful Lake Hopatcong. Featuring food, cocktails, boat rides, live music, and networking, this is a fun and festive evening not to be missed! Cost is for $25 for members, $30 for non-members.
In addition to our regular schedule of programs, we also offer special workshops and other programs on occasion, and we regularly provide our members with opportunities to give back to our community through participation in local events and fundraisers. Check out the calendar below for upcoming events, and, if you have an idea for a new program or workshop, let us know!
