By: Nunzio Del Greco
President and CEO
Bronx Chamber of Commerce

This is an historic event! I am very proud to announce that the first annual BRONX BUSINESS DIRECTORY & RESOURCE GUIDE of the Bronx Chamber of Commerce has been published. The borough of The Bronx has never had such a comprehensive publication printed. The BRONX BUSINESS DIRECTORY & RESOURCE GUIDE includes: Company advertisements, Listing of all elected officials representing The Bronx, map of The Bronx, photos of the Officers, Board of Director members, Chamber Staff, Corporate Sponsor logos, Chairman and President Circle logos, Chamber Year in Photos, Bronx Highlights in Housing, Arts and Culture, Tourism, Recreation, Higher Education, Timeline of the Bronx through the Centuries, New York City Resources and contact information, alphabetical listings of members of the members of the Bronx Chamber of Commerce and listings by categories.

Publishing the 2017 BRONX BUSINESS DIRECTORY & RESOURCE GUIDE I believe, fulfills an important need and service for the membership and the Bronx business community. There is a lot of excitement and enthusiasm from current and new members regarding the Business Directory. Over 120 new companies have joined the Bronx Chamber in the past 12 months. They see and understand the value and importance of the printed directory in addition to the many benefits of membership. As a courtesy to new companies that join during 2017, The BRONX BUSINESS DIRECTORY & RESOURCE GUIDE, an addendum will be updated each month and included with the Directory as they are distributed.

Major businesses and institutions in The Bronx also believed in the value of the Bronx Business Directory and have committed significantly with their advertising dollars. Some of the confirmed 2017 advertisers include: Active Staffing Services; American Maintenance; Apple Bank; Berkeley College; Bronx Lebanon Hospital; Castle Hill Recycling; Certified Alarm Tech Systems Inc.; Children’s Corner Learning Center; Cottam Heating & Air Conditioning; Country Bank; Halstead Property; F & F Insurance Services; Flushing Bank; Fordham University; Hutchinson Metro Center; ISE Office Plus; Law Offices of Joseph A. Romano PC; Manhattan College; Manhattan Parking; Marriott Residence Inn; Metro Optics Eyewear; MetroPlus Health Plan; Milea Auto Group; Monroe College; Mosholu Montefiore Community Center; New York Yankees; Pisacano Eye Surgery & Laser Specialists; Premier Facility Management; Rand Commercial; Ridgewood Savings Bank; Rite Check Cashing; RM Friedland; Rooter Plus Plumbing & Heating; Stop & Stor New York’s Self Storage; Royal Regency Hotel; Tarrytech Computer; The Woodlawn Cemetery; and Tompkins Mahopac Bank.

The Directory will be distributed to more than 2,000 member businesses, new businesses, and select governmental offices. It will also be distributed at Bronx Chamber of Commerce events throughout the year. Membership in 2017 will significantly increase as more and more businesses see and understand the value of membership in the Bronx Chamber of Commerce. Since January 2016, over 65 workshops, seminars, job and interview fairs and networking events for members, non-members and businesses. The 2017 calendar of events will offer even more opportunities to network.

Greater participation from the membership will also emerge from the expanded list of committees of the Bronx Chamber of Commerce. Serving on committees is an excellent way to network and meet potential new customers; contribute directly to the work of the Bronx Chamber of Commerce; interact with fellow members to share ideas and common interests; further the Chamber’s objectives for Bronx businesses and the borough through its promotion, support and advocacy initiatives.

Members have the opportunity to volunteer and serve on any one of 9 committees of their choice such as: Business Development; Bylaws; Events; Finance; Legislative; Membership; MWBE; Technology & Social Media; and Young Professionals Network.

I am very excited to be a leader in the continuing renaissance in our great borough and the Bronx Chamber of Commerce. I look forward to your active membership and meeting you at some of our upcoming networking events.
