CAMDEN, NJ (August 7, 2018) – The Camden Business Association (CBA), formerly known as the Camden Business & Contractors Association (CBCA), has undergone a major overhaul of the organization and made its debut to the city on Thursday, August 9th at 6:00 pm with a VIP reception at 121 Market Street, Camden, NJ sponsored by AT&T, South Jersey Federal Credit Union, and a few local Camden businesses.
Local, city and state officials including Camden City Mayor Frank Moran, Congressman Donald Norcross, Freeholder Jonathan Young, and Member of Camden City Council were in attendance to meet and address the Camden small business community on their important role in Camden’s economic progress.
With a new name and new brand comes a new Board of Directors, with a new focus. The Camden Business Association’s newly elected President, Ray Jones, optimistically stepping into his new role states: “I begin this journey with enthusiasm and excitement. It is more important than ever for Camden’s small business community to unite, maintain confidence and foster positive relationships. The CBA has plans to partner with local, city, state officials and business organizations to create training, education and engagement programs for the small businesses here in the city to foster growth, innovation, and collaboration. As you know, Camden is rising, and exciting times are in front of us to ensure that Camden small businesses rise for the entire community.”
As the event’s premier sponsor, guests enjoyed the comforts of the AT&T Business Lounge, where small businesses learned more about AT&T’s business services and community efforts. “It’s an exciting time to be in Camden; the notable large-scale development is creating an incredible opportunity for small businesses and the entrepreneurial community to make their mark on the city’s resurgence,” said AT&T Assistant Vice President Joseph Divis. “AT&T is proud to support the new Camden Business Association in its efforts to grow neighborhood businesses and commercial corridors, attract new employers and create jobs.”
The numbers don’t lie. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy 2018 Small Business Profile, New Jersey has 861,373 Small Businesses that account for 99.6% of the state’s businesses, employing 1.8 million people which is almost half of all New Jersey Employees. A crucial component of the economic revitalization will be the success and growth of the city’s small businesses. Understanding these needs, the new Camden Business Association is poised to be a catalyst and advocate to help elevate the small business community by promoting a sustainable and flourishing environment for public and private sector relationships, procurement and partnerships, that ultimately create jobs for Camden residents.
