It’s time once again to consider those members deserving of being named “business person of the year”. Newly renamed the Joseph G.

Must be a person with current involvement in Roselle business growth.

Phone scam, don’t be slammed!
You may have heard the term “slammed” in the past, however to review “slamming” involves changes to your phone service without your knowledge, in this case by switching your communications provider(s). Scammers will call, misrepresent themselves, and ask questions about your account or request permis- sion to make changes to your account.
A Chamber member in-good-standing recently re- ceived a call from their “provider” stating that their business account was inadvertently switched to a residential account. The caller requested a verbal “okay” to switch it back. Fortunately for this member they were suspicious of the call and later determined that their current provider made no such call.
As a reminder, please be cautious when talking with callers who claim to represent your current communi- cations provider.
Promote Your Business Through Residential Greeter Service
New residents in the community can be a source of new business for you. They tend to purchase more and have a need to develop new business relation- ships—whether it’s finding the best restaurants in town, sprucing up their yards or homes, or fulfilling medical, financial or legal needs.
By participating in the Chamber’s Residential Greeter Service, you have the opportunity to promote your business to new residents and develop lasting busi- ness relationships.
The Residential Greeter Service allows you to place advertising items in our New Resident Packages, which are delivered to an average of 50 residents per month. The items could be brochures, flyers, menus, coupons, magnets, key chains, etc. The cost is $175 for a 6-month period ($335 for non-Chamber mem- bers). That’s only $29/month!
