A Message from the 2016 – 2017 Chairman of the EMACC Board of Directors
Bob Baerenbach, Advisors Mortgage Group
I am honored to have been selected and serve as the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Eastern Monmouth Area Chamber of Commerce for the last 2 years. The Chamber has a long history of outstanding Board Chairs and I count it a privilege to be now among them and have strived to emulate the integrity, vision and leadership of my past Chairs.
Our Chamber serves our more than 300 members through our large and active business network by launching initiatives that promote business and enhance the quality of life in Eastern Monmouth County which then affects change in all of Monmouth County. Our Chamber helps promote economic vitality by helping to create and sustain a vibrant community climate to support business growth and by assisting individual businesses and civic organizations to grow their enterprise.
Since moving to Monmouth County more than a decade ago, I have come to understand how tight the business community is with one another and that Chamber membership is valuable to those who choose to engage. Chamber members have come to together to discuss important local topics that affect their businesses, thus allowing our board and staff to advocate on their behalf. Not only has our Chamber been a strong advocate for engaged local businesses, but for fostering relationships that aid the growth of our members businesses.
My 2 years has proven a great challenge as the organization saw its Executive Director of nearly 30 years retire, changes in fiscal policy and partnerships with leaders in our business community, all during a challenging business market. When I started my term; one of my goals was for our Chamber to continue promoting the growth of local businesses while providing access for all citizens to the education and training they need to qualify for these jobs through grants and scholarships offered through our Educational Foundation.
I’ve enjoyed working with our Chamber Board of Directors, our civic leaders and all of our engaged Chamber members to continue to make Eastern Monmouth the best place to live, work and raise a family.
It's Always A Great Time To Join & Save!
