Chambers of Commerce United for Business Growth
Chambers of Commerce United for Business Growth (Chambers United) is a statewide coalition of regional and local chambers of commerce. This coalition is committed to working together and speaking with one common voice in order to pursue broad-based public policies and legislative outcomes in support of businesses in New Jersey.

Chambers United was formed in 2010, and has actively supported government reform initiatives, such as the 2% property tax cap and the Governor’s toolkit. Recently, the coalition came together to advance the Single Sales Factor Allocation Formula and Corporate Business Tax benefit for small businesses. Both of these tax reform initiatives were successfully included in the Governor’s FY2012 Budget proposal. Future efforts are being concentrated in the areas of small business growth, tourism development, and infrastructure investment.
Chambers United is jointly chaired by Michael V. Kerwin, president and CEO of the Somerset County Business Partnership, and Michael Egenton, senior vice president of the New Jersey State Chamber of Commerce.
