Our summer member networking breakfast on July 22 was held at the beautiful new building that is the headquarters of the Montclair State University School of Business. Members were treated to a tour of the facility, which features academic space, meeting rooms and a business incubator. In addition, New Jersey Chamber of Commerce members exchanged business cards and discussed the latest Chamber programs, events and ways to grow their business. Members were joined by the Chamber’s executive team, including President and CEO Tom Bracken, Senior Vice President of Government Relations Michael Egenton, Vice President of Member Services Larry Krompier and Vice President of Communications Ray Zardetto. ◆
