Member Testimonials:

To Peter Crowley and the Princeton Regional Chamber Staff,

I’d like to thank you all for the terrific support you and the Chamber membership represent for me and my company, Business Writing that Works. The organization is truly a Champion for my Business. From the excellent informative and educational content of the luncheons and workshops, to the welcome openness of the Membership, and the variety of rich networking opportunities, such as Business After Business networking events and participation in Chamber committees, I have developed personal and professional relationships that I value and business opportunities that are a significant part of my revenue.

Keep up the great leadership and quality membership, and best wishes for an outstanding 2012. I’m glad to be on board for the journey!

James Salter II, Owner of Business Writing that Works
