More than 80 business owners and leaders turned out for North Jersey Federal Credit Union’s summit on Tuesday to learn about resources and solutions to help their firms thrive.
The Passaic County Business Summit offered several opportunities for vendors to meet and network and present resources that could help other businesses grow, according to the $197 million credit union in Totowa, N.J.
“Small business owners often struggle with keeping up with trends in business planning and resources that help them grow. This was our opportunity to present information in a quick and easy format while also working toward our mission of people helping people,” said Lourdes Cortez, CEO of North Jersey FCU.
Among the vendors present were New England Financial, 24/7 Networking Sales, Inc, and EZ Payroll. All discussed aspects about growing a business including insurance and succession planning, developing new sales leads and human resources support, according to the credit union.
Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. (D-N.J.) also attended the summit to discuss how trends in the economy and recession have affected small businesses.
