BRIDGETON, N.J. — As COVID-19 restrictions are lifted in New Jersey, the Bridgeton Area Chamber of Commerce will host an in-person meeting at noon on June 15 at the Alms Center. The meeting, which is the first held in-person by the Bridgeton Chamber of Commerce this year, will focus on the Hispanic Business Power of Culture, sponsored by Century Savings Bank and Revive SJ.

In joining the conversation, Chamber members will learn from a diverse group of business and community leaders to discuss the Hispanic business community and how fast-growing segments of business owners can positively impact Cumberland County’s economy.

The Chamber is still offering members the opportunity to join next month’s meeting via Zoom if you feel more comfortable doing so. It believes that residents’ chances of being exposed to the virus are low enough to allow for an in-person meeting.

“This good news, coupled with the growing availability of the COVID-19 vaccines, and with more people getting vaccinated every day, should further slow the spread of the virus and make a return to more normalcy in social interaction and in business, health and education possible sooner rather than later,” the Chamber said.

The Bridgeton Area Chamber of Commerce promotes education, communication, cooperation and commerce among its members in order to strengthen their organizations. All activities provide opportunities for members to increase their bottom-line profitability.

For more information and to register for next month’s meeting, you can visit the Chamber of Commerce’s website or call (856) 445-1312.
