Our Chamber Ambassadors are a group of dedicated Members who are passionate about Hudson County and helping the Chamber to better serve its Members. They volunteer their time with us to engage new Members who join our growing community.
That’s right. When you join the Chamber, you join a community and you will be paired with one of our Ambassadors who will reach out to learn more about your business and your goals in joining the Chamber. They will invite you to events and may invite you to coffee or plan a visit to your office. Their goal, like ours, is to ensure you are fully taking advantage of your Membership Benefits. Ambassadors also:
- Raise awareness of Chamber activities and benefits
- Serve as a mentor to first-year Chamber Members
- Inform and involve new Chamber members to promote a strong Membership
- Encourage meaningful and beneficial participation in the Chamber’s programs
- Serve as a liaison between the Chamber staff and Membership
When you are contacted by your Ambassador, please be receptive and answer their email or return their call! They want to get to know you and we guarantee you’ll enjoy getting to know them.
We invite you to get to know all our Ambassadors and are pleased this month to feature Keri Riccardi:
Keri Riccardi is one of the most dynamic and prolific networkers in Northern New Jersey. She is the co-owner of Video Marketing Group, a video production studio that produces videos for websites, blogs, and social media.
Their core clients include individual professionals, companies of all sizes, and nonprofit organizations.
Among her peers, Keri is known for her ability to strike the ideal balance of work and home life in Bergen County, where she and her husband Greg are raising their four children – three teenagers and one “tweenager”.
Keri is a very active member of several Chambers of Commerce, including Hudson County, Meadowlands Regional, Gold Coast Regional, Greater Parsippany Regional and New Jersey State Chambers. She is also active in the Bergen County Professional Women’s Network. Keri promotes and supports several nonprofits that empower women and children, such as Women Rising (Hudson County), the Women’s Rights and Information Center (Bergen County), and Beautiful Self for which she serves as a board member.
A seasoned pro at networking, Keri can not only be found traversing many area chamber and networking events, but just ask her anything like “who is a talented interior decorator I can call”, or “where is there a great Italian restaurant in this area or that”, or “Where can I find a great Yoga or Pilates instructor”, she just might pull out a card from her purse and hand it to you on the spot!
Keri presents mainly on two topics, relationship building, and the implementation of video in a strategic marketing plan.
