Jack Donohue - President Fair Lawn Chamber of Commerce

Welcome to the Fair Lawn Chamber of Commerce Website. 

If you’re currently a Chamber member - we thank you for your support and involvement.  If you are not yet a member of the Chamber, I encourage you to peruse this site, make use of the information you will learn here, and ultimately, I hope you will see the value in becoming a member of this local business networking community.

Being a member of the Chamber is so much more than sending in your dues check and hoping for the best. Talk to any long time member, former president or board member and they will tell you that indeed you reap what you sow. Involvement breeds success.

Are you a retail store owner? We are looking to build a committee to work towards goals to help you succeed, and need YOUR input to make it the best it can be.

Are you a local Restaurateur? The Chamber offers many opportunities during the course of the year to showcase your specialties in the form of our Annual Taste of Our Town, monthly business meetings where the Chamber sponsors lunch purchased from our own member eateries, networking events held at your location, our December Holiday Open House Party... and this year we have introduced a Restaurant Week to the agenda. Contact Adele for further information about how you can be a part.

Do you own a local service business? A small contracting company perhaps. There is nothing like the exposure you can get by attending monthly meetings, business card exchanges and networking events, making contacts that can translate directly to business opportunities.

Local banks, real estate offices, healthcare professionals, investment and financial services. The list goes on and on, and the ONE?thing we all have in common is growth built on personal relationships fostered by social and business interaction.

As an active Chamber member, you will learn about things happening in and around the Borough of Fair Lawn- physical improvements to the infrastructure, economic developments in the major business corridors around town.  All changes that have a direct effect on you and your business. 

Our affiliation with the ICC/Inter-Chamber Consortium, broadens your networking sphere to a much wider, opportunity-filled world of potential business connections.

Like a fine lobster dinner, it may require a little more work, but the rewards are worth it.

As your President, I stand ready to assist and support you in your efforts. If you have questions, suggestions, a desire to get more out of the Chamber, I welcome your call to me personally... or to the Chamber Office. If I can’t answer your question, I’m certain Adele can. And if somehow we can’t, rest assured that we will work to find the answers you seek.

You will learn in upcoming months about other learning and growing opportunities offered by the Chamber. Find one that intrigues you and jump onboard. I promise you won’t be disappointed!

Welcome to YOUR Chamber of Commerce.
