Evelyn Mars, the Chamber’s executive director, said, “The Jersey Shore Chamber was the only regional chamber of commerce in New Jersey to maintain a complete schedule of safe in-person events throughout 2020 and into 2021.”

Adam Puharic, President of Puharic and Associates, said, “We are proud to sponsor the Summer Kickoff and to help business people and entrepreneurs have a venue to meet in person, to network, and to find prosperity. The Jersey Shore Chamber has been a true champion and voice for the business person who could not work from home, and has been a real leader in recognizing the business community as a victim of government lockdowns and restrictive mandates. Without the Chamber, more local businesses would have closed their doors.”
