July 4Th Newsletter

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY! Here are your Chamber Announcements:

1. LCOC GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING
Our next monthly meeting is Wednesday, July 9, at the Captain’s Inn (304 East Lacey Road, Forked River, NJ 08731). This is a dinner meeting, and the cost is $18 per person. All business persons are welcome! Bring your business cards and/or other related materials. Open networking starts at 6:30 PM; the meeting will start at 7:00 PM. Our guest speaker is Don Norkus, presenting on Profitability, followed by a 5-minute member spotlight with John Cafiero of Axis Builders. See you there!
 
2. FREE DINNER

Bring a potential new member with his or her business card to our monthly LCOC meeting (second Wednesday of each Month at the Captains Inn 6:30pm), and the guest gets a free dinner! (The current member only pays for their own dinner.) The guest must be brought by a current LCOC member and must be in a position to be able to consider joining our chamber with the business they are representing on their business card. (Limit one free dinner per guest.) The LCOC Board thought this might be a nice, low-pressure way of inviting guests to see our Chamber in action. Once they visit, how could they not join?!?

Reservations are on a "first come, first served" basis. If you would like to reserve a space, please contact Janet Levy directly at This email address is being protected from spambots.
