The mission of Commerce and Industry Association is to be the leader in free enterprise advocacy for the purpose of fostering, through education, legislative vigilance and membership interaction, an economic climate that enhances business potential and makes New Jersey a better state in which to live, work and conduct business.
Over time, we have learned how the real value of a business association is found in the relationships built and the resources shared. CIANJ’s forums and business councils are arenas that bring together the brightest minds across professional disciplines in the key areas that affect every business in the state. From finance and healthcare to human resources and the environment, there is always something to learn – or something to share — in our association.
The council and forums of Commerce and Industry deliver insight, best practices and important connections to assist you in your business. Forum discussions are an excellent way to shine a light on your expertise and gain exposure and new clients from focused, meaningful participation.
We encourage all CIANJ members to be active members. CIANJ councils and forums help our members (or their teams) find topic-specific areas of interest to become involved.
Of course, member companies also have an opportunity to volunteer to actively participate in various steering committees that shape the agenda of the association. In addition, executive may be invited to join the board of directors, a select group of business leaders who guide the association and provide its vision.
