All Chamber events delayed through May 31st

Dear Chamber Members,

We have made the decision to postpone all events through May 31st.  We encourage everyone to follow the social distancing and care habits the State has put forth and look forward to meeting when we get through this, and we will get through this together.

The Chamber has launched several initiatives in the last few weeks to help support the business community and our nonprofit organizations, including:

  • Creating a COVID-19 Resource Page for Businesses
  • Launching the Virtual Business Community Facebook Group
  • Implementing Facebook LIVE discussions to address public concerns
  • Partnering with our members to highlight a series of educational Webinars
  • Posting notifications of Restaurants and businesses open for service
  • Revamping our website to focus on providing resource information on the latest updates, grants, loans and promoting our members
  • Donating in partnership with the Chamber Foundation to the Princeton Area Community Covid-19 Fund to the amount of $5,000 to aid in relief to local businesses and nonprofit organizations

We continue to employ our staff, diligently working remotely to support your business and answer any inquiries.

Led by our Board, our total focus is to support our local businesses, now more than ever.  By continuing to follow good health habits and buy local—virtually, we will emerge from this as a stronger Region. 

Thank you,

Peter Crowley, President & CEO

President’s Note to Members Regarding our Event Postponement

All Chamber events delayed through April 30th

Dear Chamber Members,

I wanted to personally reach out to you and provide an update on the actions the Chamber is taking to address the spread of the Coronavirus [COVID-19].  After meeting with our Board of Directors, receiving input from our Members and consulting with Mercer County, the Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber will postpone all Chamber events effective today, Thursday, March 12th through April 30th.  Our events often number  over 100 attendees, and we feel limiting this exposure is in the best interest of the health of our Members, colleagues, staff and families.

In addition to postponing these events, we are implementing a policy of moving all committee meetings to conference calls, and when appropriate implementing work from home policies to staff who show any signs of illness.

We are keenly aware that our business community will be faced with unexpected challenges now and in the weeks to come. During that time, the Chamber will modify marketing messages, website content and social media outreach to provide information designed to help and inform members on the resources available to them relating to local and national business operations. In addition, we will be reinforcing the importance of buying from our local businesses, eating at our local restaurants, shopping in our local communities and working with our local service providers to foster the normalcy that our communities and businesses need. 

It is important to remember now, more than ever, to support our local businesses.  By continuing to follow good health habits, minimizing exposure for higher risk Members, minimizing contact with large group events and continuing to buy local—we can emerge from this as a stronger Region. 

If you have any questions please call the Chamber office at 609-924-1776. The Chamber has a COVID-19 Resource page for businesses here

Sincerest regards,

Peter Crowley, President & CEO
