4-5-04

Timothy Losch of Yardville National Bank, left, chairman of the Greater Mercer County Chamber of Commerce, and Michele Siekerka, right, chamber executive director, announced on Monday the establishment of a new training partnership with Mercer County Community College (MCCC).

Losch said the chamber has appointed MCCC’s Dean of College Advancement William Mate (center) to lead its “Mercer Business Forum,” a series of seminars designed to cover topics of critical interest to the business community. The seminars will be held at the high-tech Conference Center on the college’s West Windsor campus. “All of us at Mercer are pleased that the chamber has recognized us as the area’s premiere training resource,” Mate said.

Losch said the chamber sees ongoing training as essential for business survival. “The stability of our members is very important and we want to provide them with the training that will help them survive and thrive.”

According to Siekerka, the “Mercer Business Forum” will be the perfect venue to provide training for small business managers in areas such as accounting and finance, staffing, seeking economic assistance, pooling opportunities and bidding on projects. Human resource professionals will be offered training programs in staffing, employee relations and creating a diverse workforce. Risk management issues will be addressed in insurance, compliance and privacy.

“The college is honored to host the chamber’s training programs at our state-of-the-art conference center,” said MCCC President Robert Rose. During its first 13 months of operation the college’s conference center has hosted more than 580 events that served more than 23,000 guests at meetings, conferences, training sessions and social events, Rose said.

Mate said the chamber will offer its first seminar in June, with a full schedule to commence in September. For more information call William Mate at 609-586-4800 ext. 3601.
