WOODBURY – The recently-formed Woodbury Chamber of Commerce will hold its first Chamber After Dark networking event on March 29 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Community Room of New Morning Market.
Coffee and dessert will be served. A donation of $5 to help defray advertising costs is requested. Members and non-members are welcome to attend.
John Pittari Jr., founder and owner of New Morning Market, will present a short talk about his experiences as a successful business owner in Woodbury. Karen Reddington-Hughes, president of the Woodbury Chamber, will provide details and answer any questions about the newly formed organization. Following the talk, attendees will have the opportunity to network and connect with each other.
The Woodbury Chamber’s membership reflects several different industries, including financial, retail, non-profit, dining, real estate, medical, and more. Individuals and businesses from any field are welcome to join, including those who are now retired. Annual fees for the first 50 “founding” members are $135, after which the cost will be $150.
The Woodbury Chamber of Commerce was formed in 2018 with the goal of connecting local businesses in Woodbury. Reddington-Hughes said that benefits to membership include increased visibility in the community, growth through advertising and sponsorship of Chamber events, networking, professional development, business promotion, and member-exclusive advertising.
Reddington-Hughes is the former chair of Woodbury’s now-defunct Business and Economic Development Committee. She is also president of the Woodbury Antiques Dealers Association.
