BRIDGEWATER, NJ – The Somerset County Business Partnership has announced that the 2018 Annual Meeting & Celebration of Success, annually the most important gathering of the Somerset County business community, is scheduled for Monday, December 10, 2018 at the Palace at Somerset Park, 333 Davidson Avenue in Somerset, New Jersey. The day’s celebration will begin with a networking reception at 11:30 A.M. followed by the luncheon at 12:15 P.M.

The SCBP Annual Meeting attracts more than 500 people from the private and public sectors who gather to mingle while enjoying the food and ambiance that make The Palace one of the area’s top venues for celebrations.   This year the Business Partnership will tell the story of the Somerset County rise in economic prominence by recognizing our 2018 Economic Vitality Award recipients.

“The Business Partnership Annual Meeting is Somerset County’s largest and most important gathering of the business community. It allows leaders from the public, private, and non-profit sectors to come together to support the Business Partnership’s work to make New Jersey’s best place to live, work, play and visit,” commented Business Partnership CEO Mike Kerwin.

The 2018 Economic Vitality recipients are LabCorp for its significant investment to expand its facility in the Borough of Raritan which will result in the addition of new jobs to reach a total of more than 1,100 local employees; and the Somerset County Planning Board for outstanding leadership in making vibrant connections with community partners to help make Somerset County a great place to live, work, learn, play and visit.

 The 2018 Special Recognition Award will be presented to Linda Dousis for championing the cause of our local small businesses through her leadership at the Small Business Development Center at Raritan Valley Community College and the Somerset County Business Partnership.
