-- Displaced from its long time home office in Ship Bottom, located at the gateway of LBI; the Southern Ocean Chamber has opened a temporary location in Stafford Heritage Park Train Station across from Manahawkin Lake between RT 72 and 9. This will serve as a Regional Business Recovery Center to connect business information with those who need it as well as provide private space for businesses to conduct meetings with clients or discuss rebuilding efforts.
With the Southern Ocean County Chamber turning 99 next year, this local non profit prides themselves as being longtime stewards of this beloved shore area. With phone lines still down, plans are to have number forwarded 609 494 7211 as soon as possible, but as of now the Chamber can be reached through email info@visitLBIRegion.com, facebook on LBI Region, follow blog or homepage updates on visitLBIregion.com or in person at the Train Station.
The Southern Ocean County Chamber has plans to partner with state and local chambers to provide the most useful resources for businesses and community at this time, as well forwarding crucial emergency management contacts as they are received.
