The Gateway Regional Chamber of Commerce announced on Thursday that the newest
group under their umbrella, the Warren Township Chamber of Commerce, hosted 80
attendees at a kickoff meeting this morning to officially establish the group.
The group next will meet at 8 a.m. on Oct. 24 in the Warren Township courtroom. The meeting will be hosted by the Warren Township branch of the Somerset County library, according to Kate Conroy, vice president of the Gateway Regional Chamber of Commerce.
The Warren Township Chamber of Commerce will meet monthly for breakfast, networking and presentations from experts in various industries. At the organizational meeting, the group heard from Jim Coyle of the Gateway Regional Chamber of Commerce, as well as representatives from the township.
Other attendees and speakers included Mayor Victor Sordillo, Police Lieutenant Bill Keane, Superintendant of Schools Tami Crader and Carolyn DellSala, director of the Warren Township library.
“The Gateway Chamber is thrilled to be a part of such an endeavor,” said Jim Coyle. “There is no additional membership fee to be part of this group. Once you’re part of the Gateway Chamber, you’re automatically a member of all our local groups and are invited to attend as many as you’d like.”
There is no cost to attend the Warren Township Chamber Meetings. However, members and attendees can expect serious interactions with other businesses and township officials. The mayor, chief of police, superintendants of school and library director will be invited to every meeting and encouraged to offer information on what’s going on in town.
Evan Tornquist of Fulton Bank of New Jersey commented, “I am so pleased to chair this new group. Warren hasn’t had a business organization since the Warren Business & Professional Association and it’s time for a fresh start."
Tonquist said the new chamber welcomes businesses large and small to attend the meetings and we look forward to working together to make Warren an even better place to live and work.”
Kate Conroy, vice president of the Gateway Chamber, said, “We feel overwhelmed by the support members of the Warren business community have shown for this new group."
“The Warren Township Chamber of Commerce is off to a great start, and we can’t wait to see where the journey takes us," said Conroy.
