Lisa Voorhees has been elected president of the Greater Lambertville Chamber of Commerce. She has served as a board member for two years and most recently as secretary.
Her experience includes more than 30 years of service in human resources and employee relations with the State of New Jersey.
“While our chamber has gone through many changes recently, I am confident to share with you that we are building our board of directors, we’ve elected a new treasurer and secretary to the executive board and are ready to take it to the next level,” Voorhees said.
Improvements already in the works include refreshing business sign posts. “The posts will be painted black and there will be new signs installed. We are currently working with River Signs on this project.“
The chamber is working with the Eric Rounds Agency, which is updating the website with member benefits and other improvements.
Voorhees announced that Arts & Antiques Weekend is set for Oct. 7, 8 and 9. She is asking for volunteers from local galleries and shops to join her in planning for the event.
She is also considering creating the Locals Liaison Program. This would require one or two volunteers from each of the business areas, such as restaurants, retail, art galleries to be the voice for questions, concerns, and suggestions from groups of businesses.
“We understand that each area comes with its specific set of needs,” Voorhees said. “We want you to have a voice, to have a resource person who can help to navigate those needs. If interested in being a volunteer, please email me directly.”
The chamber will soon resume the newsletter and social media posts.
