You will save $25 if you join the Chamber that night or before midnight on Nov. 11. What’s more, if you join at the Open House, you could win a free first-year membership. Network with new business contacts, and find out what the Chamber has to offer. Come and enjoy the fun — and “all that jazz.” Sincerely, Dear Readers: As a 20-year resident of Mahwah and a Chamber member for 10 of those years, I have seen tremendous economic growth in the region. This growth is also reflected in the growth and popularity of the Mahwah Regional Chamber of Commerce, which is ranked one of the Top 25 Chambers in New Jersey by NJBIZ magazine. Why is the Chamber so popular? Because we give Chamber businesses center stage in everything we do. We are more affordable than many other business organizations. We are committed to giving back to the communities we serve and, more importantly, we have fun doing it!
