Who We are
Recognizing the need for a Chamber of Commerce in our area, Garrett Simulcik, a longtime resident and active community leader invited other active community members to start a steering committee to gauge interest for having a Chamber of Commerce in North Babylon. A total of seven individuals native to North Babylon from various disciplines immediately responded and quickly formed the interim Executive. They are as follows:
Garrett P. Simulcik, Sr., President
Paul Della Universita, Jr., 1st Vice President
Ryan O’Neil Williams, 2nd Vice President
Diane DeLuca, Secretary
Terence McSweeney, Treasurer
Elida Gomez, Director
Richard Irizarry, Director
The Benefits of Joining Our Chamber of Commerce
Here are just a few of the active benefits of joining the North Babylon Chamber of Commerce today, as per President Garrett Simulcik:
1. Act as a good resource for your business if it is in need for local help (full time/part time or seasonal).
2.The chamber will keep up with all local and county changes in law or ordinance that may affect local businesses and this information will be passed on immediately.
3.The chamber as a group will be able to provide a stronger voice to local and county officials in getting problems resolved or initiating changes. (Power in numbers).
4.The Chamber will provide a platform for businesses to discuss and resolve problems that any business may have. Though the businesses many differ, many times my problem is the same as your problem. Together we work to resolve it, or another member may have already experienced the problem and came up with a solution.
5.Guest speakers at the Chamber meetings geared to helping businesses. For example: Marketing, Tax Tips, etc.
The new North Babylon Chamber of Commerce is governed by a set of evolving By-Laws, which we will use to inform our Mission, Goals and Projects. You may read more about the By-Laws here.
