COLTS NECK, NJ - The Colts Neck Business Association is thrilled to report that our annual luncheon, to be held on March 5th at Trump National Golf Club, is on target to be sold out. With 300 attendees this luncheon promises to be one of the biggest Monmouth Business Community events of the year. At the luncheon local professionals from throughout the County will join with public officials, educators and others to network and develop relationships.  The CNBA will be presenting a check for $1,000 to Jen Maier, Union Beach Township Manager, for the Union Beach Operation Provide Comfort program.   The speaker for the event will be Internationally known economist Peter Grandich and former NY Ranger “Fan-Favorite” Nick Fotiu will be joining in to sign autographs and greet fans.

On February 13 the CNBA held their monthly meeting and recognized Thomas Corley for his dedication to the organization as our past Treasurer.  Glen Dalakian presented Tom with a  certificate of appreciation.  Dave Sokoler, CNBA’s new Treasurer, presented a new proposed budget that is now available for review on our website.

Congratulations to Mike Tormey, the winner of our $1000 quarterly “Added Value” package (available to members who attend General Meetings). The goal of this unique program is to provide our members an opportunity to work together and take advantage of each other’s talents, while bolstering their business with cash and services for solid marketing.

Big thank you to Bryan Kuderna, Financial Advisor with International Planning Alliance and committed member of the CNBA.  Bryan spoke at our February meeting and explained how his focus is not on financial products, but rather on people.  He educates them on how to enjoy life with a future perspective for financial peace of mind.

Finally, CNBA would like to welcome two new businesses to Colts Neck: Ashford & Grace Jewelers, who will be hosting our next Card Exchange on Monday April 22 from 7-9pm, and Siam Restaurant.  We have seen continued growth in our business district in the past year and our welcoming committee is excited to speak to anyone interested in opening in Colts Neck.  Our unique New Business Brochure is filled with contacts and info to ease the transition for any business coming to town
