Dear Members and Friends in the Community,
While we are still under quarantine, we are moving towards "recovery." The governor announced that beaches and lakes will be open for Memorial Day. "Nonessential" Businesses are allowed to open for curbside pickup of pre-ordered merchandise (see below), and more businesses are scheduled to reopen in June. It is a start!
As we all start to think about reopening, there is a lot to be considered. I encourage you to take advantage of the U.S. Chamber Guide for Reopening which is also accessible from our Covid 19 Resource Tab above. We have also scheduled some Events to help you prepare for reopening - see the June Zoom Schedule below.
Please be sure to wear a mask and practice social distancing when you have to head outside your home.
THE ZOOM SCHEDULE FOR JUNE
It is still so important to feel connected, minimize stress levels and stay positive. So our June Events Schedule (via Zoom) includes:
4 Networking Events, (June 3, 11, 17 & 25)
"Lunch & Learn" on June 9 to help you organize your Home Office space,
Speaker Breakfast on June 23rd that will discuss what employers need to consider from a legal perspective, before reopening.
Click here to view the whole calendar, then click on the days/events you want and register. Your confirmation will contain the information you need to enter the Zoom event.
If there is some other activity you would like us to do, or some other way we can help you, please send me an email or give me a call. If you need to talk, you can still reach me at the office number which will go through to my cell phone.
Most importantly, be safe and healthy.
Hope J. Rothenberg

"We Flattened the Covid Curve,Now We Need to Raise the State's Economic Curve"These were the words of Tom Bracken, President and CEO of the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce, in a guest column in ROI-NJ. His intent was to remind everyone that the economic success of New Jersey's reopening, is dependent upon the success of small businesses.Tom proposes a Buy NJ campaign, to ensure the success of small businesses. I encourage you to read Tom's full articleAs members of a New Jersey Chamber of Commerce, and since more than 75% of our Chamber are small businesses, we all have a responsibility to support Buy NJ and encourage everyone we know to do the same.To encourage support for this campaign, feel free to use the graphic below -- hang it in your store or office and give it to others to do the same. (Feel free to email me and I'll send it to you as an attachment, so the quality will be good!). On social media please use the hashtags #BuyNJ and #BuyLocalNJ.More information from the NJ Chamber regarding the Buy NJ campaign is forthcoming. Meanwhile, please let me know if you have any questions or any suggestions for what else our Chamber can do.Thank You!
