Nadine M. Gomes Williams, Novo Nordisk
“Being a member of the Chamber and participating on its committees has been a rewarding experience. I have had the opportunity to learn, meet amazing people in the business community, expand my professional network and be a part of very important events that both educate and celebrate the Princeton and Mercer County communities. I am also able to share these experiences with the broader Novo Nordisk workforce.”
Denise Daniels, United Way of Greater Mercer County
During the pandemic, the Chamber was the foundational core of the community. It worked to keep everyone connected, supported and informed. The Chamber helped businesses secure loans, and helped nonprofits increase their capacity with corporate partnerships. Even the staff were hands on volunteering in the community!
With the Chamber’s support, many Mercer County businesses survived and even thrived during one of the most difficult periods of our lifetimes. A very special Thank you to all the staff of the PrincetonMercer Regional Chamber!
Erin Klebaur, President, Imbue Creative
This chamber is a major asset to Imbue’s growth! The entire staff is dedicated to helping me make meaningful connections and is a go to resource for any of my business needs. The relationships I’ve built here are not transactional, but long-lasting relationships that will be with me personally and professional for years to come.
Maggie Van Dagens, Owner, J&M Marketing Communications
“I support the Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber because it is a great way to get the word out. Whenever we create a new website, or one of our clients achieves an honor, we promote that on the chamber’s website and Facebook page. Our message has the potential of reaching thousands of receptive people.
Like all businesses, we need other businesses for support. When you call a business – say a law firm – for help and tell them you’re member of the chamber, they welcome you. There is a camaraderie, a togetherness that comes with being in the chamber.”
Kacie Hurley, Withum
“The chamber has always been an integral part of my career. I have been an active member for a number of years by participating on committees as well as attending events. But more recently I have been so impressed by their ability to pivot and help the business community during the pandemic. For me the chamber has become a place and an outlet to continue to network, socialize and conduct business.”

“I have been a member of the chamber for 6 years now and can truly say that is has certainly helped me grow my business at the same time creating friendships. It is a great way to network and meet other like minded professionals to grow your career with. I have been involved in several other chambers and I am happy to say that the PMRC is the most professional, well organized, and my personal favorite of them all. The members are also highly knowledgeable in their crafts and willing to help out in any way. I look forward to continuing helping others grow through the chamber and creating new partnerships.”

I wish I had joined the chamber when I first started my business. If you are remotely considering it, I urge you to join it. In the 6 months since I have joined the chamber, my business growth and personal growth has been impacted positively. The chamber staff is extremely supportive in ensuring that you have the right connections for growing your business. The event calendar is so designed that it is convenient to find the right meeting with your schedule. I also love the special sub groups that is ideal for your business, from women in business, independent business, young professional, real estate, you can find a group that works best for you. You can tailor your experience with the chamber as precise or as broad as you wish it to be.
Sal Levatino – SL Business Solutions
“The Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber has always been an organization focused on the needs of their members and creating a great environment in which members get a big return on their investment in the chamber. Most recently, they have creatively and quickly adapted to the virtual meeting space due to the pandemic. They have replicated and reinvented all of their events into effective virtual meetings. In some respects these events are more effective in connecting members to each other due to the staff working hard to maximize those connection opportunities, each and every meeting.
Membership in the Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber of Commerce is and should be an essential part of every regional business’s engagement and marketing efforts.”

Gail Rose Speaks About PMRC
When we moved our business to Princeton, NJ, the first person to show up at our launch event was Peter Crowley, President and CEO of the Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber (PMRC). That kind of warm and enthusiastic welcome is what the PMRC is all about.
Through my membership and as a volunteer ambassador, I have been able to expand my network of friends as well as business connections in a short period of time—and have fun doing it. The events are tremendous and offer something to fit just about every business person’s schedule and interests. I am impressed and at times inspired by the guest speakers. I always leave PMRC events feeling recharged and ready to put new ideas into practice.
If you can join only one networking organization in the Princeton region, there is no question that PMRC is where you want to be.
Robert Blanda – CaddisArt Cinematic Marketing
(President & Creative Director)
The Chamber staff, board members and members are a very well-oiled machine for networking, communication and camaraderie. Although our company doesn’t have the luxury to attend many events, the online resources and broadcasts keep us up to date on what’s important in the world of business and tourism in our area. I give the staff and their vendors enormous credit for their hard work and due diligence in keeping our business community together.
Testimonial: Jeanette Iglesias, JI Coaching, LLC
When I first joined the Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber (PMRC), I was a naïve, new business owner, unsure of how to get my message out and how to grow my business. Then I met Christine Curnan, Director of Membership Development for the PMRC, and that all changed. She introduced me to the boundless opportunities of the Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber and my business started to accelerate. I immediately connected with the Chamber staff who not only listened to my needs but actively sought to champion my business growth and sustainability. I also met a dynamic community of active business owners seeking to do business with one another. That is why, year over year, I recognize the Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber as one of the greatest investments in my business, and that is also why I volunteer on the Membership Committee to bring similar growth opportunities to others. Regardless of size, the PMRC has something for everyone.
Hillary Spivak Shares Her PMRC Experience
What a fantastic experience it is being a member of the Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber (PMRC)! There are so many opportunities to network and build relationships. The PMRC staff is superb and the events are fabulous. It is such an honor to chair the Ambassador Committee where we help new and existing members become acclimated to get the most from their membership. Personally and professionally, joining the PMRC has been one of the best decisions I have made.
