Welcome to the Fort Lee Regional Chamber of Commerce!
Dear Chamber Members,
The start of 2016 has been an extremely productive period for our Chamber. Our new Executive Director, Hope Rothenberg, has begun her duties with a flying start and our momentum from last year has continued. Hope has been instrumental in encouraging new members to join well above our budgeted forecast.
We continue to have two or three events each month that have been very beneficial to our members who utilize networking to aide their businesses. Our 4 Chamber events often attract over 100 members to these events and allow our members to meet other Chamber members from Englewood, Edgewater and the NJ Korean-American Chambers.
There is a real buzz in the air all over our region as economic development is booming. In Fort Lee, The Modern will soon be fully occupied and the second 47 story tower has just started construction. Hudson Lights, with its impressive retail complex and its 475 rental apartments will be completed by the summer. Edgewater and Cliffside Park also have a large block of development projects that our Chamber will aide with their businesses.
We continue to fulfill our mission for community support by sponsoring the Fort Lee High School Academy of Finance with our annual basketball tournament and this year we again presented a $1,000 check plus a summer internship to their students. We will also support scholarships in Ridgefield and Fort Lee.
Please look forward to a Fall Symposium that will bring together local, state and national political leaders with businesses to discuss how to improve our economy by promoting our businesses.
