    "It's been my privilege to be a part of the Business Referral Groups as well as a member of the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce for the past 3 years.  On several occasions, potential clients have reached out to me either by direct referral from a fellow member or the leadership at the Chamber as well as through our MCC Website where they have searched and found me and picked up the phone.  I'm glad that the MCC is on "MY SIDE" and appreciate having them partnered as I journey to grow my print business in the Tri-State area!"

    “When I joined the Chamber, for a fraction of the cost of the previous association with which I had been involved, I was immediately introduced to a Board member who asked me if I was interested in volunteering. I joined a Business Referral Group, attended networking events (at no cost to me as a member) and, before I knew it, I started to get clients. Today, my largest revenue streams are a direct result of my Chamber membership.  Additionally, my involvement as a volunteer increased. After only about three years as a member, I sit on the Board, co-chair the Entrepreneurship Committee, am an Ambassador, and host the Chamber’s weekly podcast, “The Voice of Manhattan Business.”  I am proof that the Chamber gives its members a chance to grow their business and meaningfully contribute to the business community.”

    “Being in technology sales/business development, I have made business networking connections that I would not have made otherwise if it had not been for my membership in the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce. I always look forward to the upcoming educational, networking and community oriented events, which allow me to be more involved and connected with the Manhattan business community. These events have had a significant, positive impact on my business and personal growth and I highly recommend membership.”

    “Some of the outstanding benefits I’ve enjoyed as a Manhattan Chamber of Commerce member include attending events where I meet interesting professionals and prospects. I also joined an MCC Business Referral Group, where several members hired me to help them with marketing and branding. Since they speak highly of my work, others have hired and referred me. In addition, I was interviewed on MCC’s “Voice of Manhattan” podcast, was asked to be a panelist at an “Ask the Experts” event, and during MCC’s MarketingWeekNYC, I gave a presentation, “Brand Your Business Like a Pro”, which further established my expertise among a larger audience. I am very grateful to MCC for the many opportunities my marketing business has had. I can’t imagine a more supportive or better business organization.”

    “We have been involved with the Chamber for three years. I cannot say enough. Over the past year we established Transportation Transformation as a way to promote New York City bikeshare and as a way to develop a transportation strategy for a proposed E2NYC, a cleantech exposition in 2016. Transportation Transformation has been so successful, we may be launching it as a start-up. It would not have been possible without the support of the Chamber.“

    “Over the past few years, Microsoft has been a strong member/partner of the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce. 2012 has been fantastic and going into 2013, I am excited to see the growth of cutting edge Microsoft technologies such as Office 365 and the impact that they have on the Small Business community. Working with the MCC Tech Committee to highlight these technologies first for MCC members will be very exciting!”

    "It's tough to start and grow a business. It's even hard to do it in New York City. The Manhattan Chamber of Commerce is an oasis and resource for growing businesses, like none other. Sure it has events. Sure it has networking opportunities. Sure it has advocacy. Sure it has committees. But it also a passion and heart to see small businesses grow and thrive - like few other organizations have. If you're doing business in New York City, or anywhere in the USA, being a part of the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce should be one of your priorities. I'm Ramon Ray, a four time entreprenuer and best selling author and the chamber has been a huge part of my persona nd professional success."

    For the past 21 years, Nancy Ploeger has been president of the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce. Since joining the chamber in 1994 as the executive director, Nancy has represented the business community on a wide range of critical issues, most notably those involving health insurance, MWBE certification, government procurement, small businesses globalization, diversity and business resources for services sectors, among other issues. In February, Nancy is leaving her position at the chamber to take over at the wheel at an organization co-founded by the Chamber, International Women’s Entrepreneurial Challenge.

    Mileage covered: 1.3 miles

    Overcast, unseasonably 59 degrees

    Central Casting’s idea of what makes a great Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive – someone possessed with effortless boosterism, a lack of apparent guile and an ample reservoir of energy and bonhomie – Nancy Ploeger, President of the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, and I are meeting to go about her rounds late one recent Friday afternoon.

    We join each other beneath her apartment building awning on East 88th Street, between First and Second.

    “So, where are we headed?” I ask as Nancy and I walk west, pushing her empty shopping cart that, clearly, has a lot of mileage on it.

    “We’re headed to Wankels. It’s about 97 years old, one of the few hardware stores left in the area. We’re going to be buying some dirt because we’re planting bulbs tomorrow in Ruppert Park,” she tells me.

    Like many New Yorkers (myself included) Nancy has caught the adopt-a-NYC-park bug. And she’s starting from the ground up. Literally.

    “All the soil in the park has worn away and all that’s left is concrete. I want to get some potting soil so the bulbs will have a chance to live.”

    Saint Louis born, Nancy has (Central Casting again) all the zest for living in her adopted city that only a true transplant possesses. The recipient of countless community and city accolades, Nancy would be a five star NYC general. If there were such a thing.

    “My first apartment was on East 90th Street. Then I moved to 88th between First and York for a year. Then my current place, since 1973. It’s a great prewar building.”

    At the Second Avenue crosswalk Nancy and I run into Rick, whom Nancy has known for years. Informing me that he was born in her building two-plus generations ago, Nancy is corrected.

    “No, Doctor’s Hospital,” Rick reminds her as he peels off to continue his own Friday rounds.

    “Many of the people have lived in my building a long time,” she continues. “But we have a lot of new people. Families with kids. And we have a BEAUTIFUL (all caps) laundry room, with a TV you can watch while your laundry is being done.”

    I tell Nancy that she lives on a nice looking block. Great, mature trees. And the church…

    “What makes the block is the church (Church of the Holy Trinity). The garden out front is one of my favorite places. You can just go in, sit on a bench and read a book,” she notes. It’s an active church with a homeless program. A few people spend the night there and then are out at 6:00 in the morning.

    “Plus, they have a search and care program for the elderly, and a day care center for kids.”

    But enough of the church’s role in the community. It’s now time to load up on some good mother earth at Wankels for Nancy to do her own important work in Ruppert Park. On our way, we swing by yet another park Nancy has adopted. A small, “pocket” park adjacent to a high-rise. “This park actually belongs to 200 East 87th. The owners were able to add extra height to the building if they added the park. For the first seven years they planted and cared for it but after then the homeless and others kept digging up the plants. And they got tired of spending all the money.

    “So now all they do is pick up the garbage and keep the water fountain working.”

    While she is doing all the heavy motivational lifting, her cause is being aided and abetted by a local church group that wants to do the gardening. They plan to put in bushes and a few trees. Nothing that is easy to dig up and spirit away.

    After viewing a video paying tribute to the Drop Collaborative's first year in review (check out the video at: http://www.dropcollaborative.com/happy-holidays.html), Heather Justice, Executive Director of CTE (Career and Technical Education) office of Tennessee's Department of Education, praised the Drop Collaborative and participating students' efforts. In addition to her approval of the program, Sharon Necessary, the Career and Technical Education Consultant in the First Tennessee CORE office, plans to share the video and highlight the Drop Collaborative in next month's CTE directors meeting in Nashville, Tennessee. Sharon Necessary has also requested the Drop Collaborative be used as a best practice model for other CTE teachers state-wide.

    The Drop Collaborative was created to strengthen local community through food, education, and community outreach. By offering a space for students to apply classroom lessons to a practical environment through a SAE (Supervised Agricultural Experience), students can learn the art of sustainable farming and mentorship while providing families in need with fresh produce. Since 1982, Unaka High School has been home to one of two meat sciences programs in the country; teaching students the process of meat production. Until March 2015, Unaka High School did not have land available to teach food production from start to harvest or to raise cattle. Through the birth of the Drop Collaborative, Unaka's SAE program evolved. The first year's successes included inspiring dedication and commitment from student farmers, the purchase of our first calf, over 500 pounds of fresh produce donated to the community, and a mentorship day at the farm with younger students.

    Pattie Meyer, President, Edge City Design LLC, and Ashley Bevensee, both based in Philadelphia, Pa. developed the idea and mission of the Drop Collaborative. Through Edge City Design's lengthy relationship with Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, particularly with Nancy Ploeger (Founder of Community Benefit Fund) and Laura Bucko (Founder of Green Committee), Edge City Design gained practical knowledge on creating such a program. East Tennessee State University (ETSU) was the first local school that was contacted. Ron Roach, Ph.D​., Chair, Department of Appalachian Studies, and Kevin O'Donnell, Department of Literature and Language, wanted to help make the idea become reality. They connected us with Emily Bidgood of Appalachian RC&D Council who connected us with Unaka High School. Josh Armentrout, Agriculture Instructor; Melissa Loveless, CTE Principal; Betsy Oliver, Principal; and Mickey Taylor, CTE Director/Supervisor of Unaka High School were immediately interested and quickly developed strategies to implement the Drop Collaborative's vision. We would not have been able to begin work on the Drop Collaborative in such short notice if it were not for the dedication of Unaka High School as well as other players and friends -- Frances Meyer, David Robbins, Esq., Lawrence Pierce, Charlotte Markland, Chris Estlow, Joe Meyer, Margaret Meyer, Taylor Malone, and many others. Last but most certainly not least, the Drop Collaborative would not have been so successful without the motivation of Unaka High School's students who participated -- Logan Cannon, Israel Harrah, Savannah Wood, Jacob Graybeal, Savannah Agan, Sierra Wright, and Chris Erickson.

    New York SmartCEO recently announced the winners of their 2015 Corporate Culture Awards, and Progressive Computing was among the 40 honorees. The Corporate Culture Awards celebrate companies in Greater New York that have successfully championed a positive, productive and performance-driven culture, and have worked with their employees to develop successful cultural practices. The winners were profiled in the November/December issue of SmartCEO magazine and celebrated at an awards ceremony at BNY Mellon in New York City.

    "We are extremely honored to be one of the recipients of the 2015 SmartCEO Corporate Culture Award,” said Robert Patterson, Director of Sales and Marketing at Progressive Computing. "We work with all of our team members to create a positive and productive environment that translates into optimum results for the company and our customers."

    Chief Visionary Officer, Ugo Chiulli, and the rest of the Progressive Computing team work to promote a message and attitude of togetherness in the workplace. The company has focused on maintaining a culture rooted in teamwork and family. Employees receive fully-paid health benefits, profit sharing, significant time off, and are given the opportunity to work from home as needed. The normal workday for Progressive Computing staff starts at 9am and runs until 6pm without exception, and employees are expected to be on call only once every 10 weeks, which is extremely rare in the IT industry.

     “The leaders of the companies named to the inaugural Corporate Culture Awards have realized that running a company is more than head count and the bottom line. It’s about creating a place where creativity, energy and ideas are cultivated. Through this they are able to not only enhance performance and sustain their companies’ competitive advantages but also enrich the lives of those they employ and inspire them to make a greater impact on the world,” says Jaime Nespor Zawmon, president of SmartCEO Events. “We’re honored to celebrate with the leaders of New York’s top company cultures and recognize them for building true performance-driven cultures.”

    The Corporate Culture Awards ceremony was held on December 3, and welcomed the leaders of New York’s top companies to enjoy a high-energy networking reception with activities including a red carpet, Guitar Hero, a putting green, and a live performance. These events were followed by a video-packed awards ceremony honoring the leaders of New York’s top company cultures.

We reached 21 million people and had over 175 entries.

    Our 2016 contest, starting January 25, is a great opportunity for business influencers to help small businesses in the US.

    We will recognize the best, most inspirational and original video that showcases a small business story. The grand prize winner will win $20,000, new Surface Pro 4s, and subscriptions to Office 365 for their business (up to 10 devices/seats) in addition to a publicity package.

Among the dozens of entries we received there were many inspirational stories from non-profits, retail, and online businesses.

    MCC Press Release

    Manhattan Chamber of Commerce selects Jessica Walker as its next President

    Media Enquiries: ken@manhattancc.org or 212-541-6050

    New York, NY, February 2, 2016. The Board of Directors of the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce has selected Jessica Walker to serve as its next President effective February 22, 2016.

    Ms. Walker comes to the MCC from the Partnership for New York City where she currently serves as the Vice President of Government Affairs. She will be taking the role from Nancy Ploeger who stepped down after 21 years as President of the MCC.

    “Jessica is the perfect person to pick up on the great work that Nancy has done for the MCC. She brings a wealth of experience in government affairs and business advocacy, which will enable her to hit the ground running,” stated Ken Biberaj, Chairman of the Board of the MCC.  “We had an overwhelming response to our search with a wealth of capable candidates applying, but Jessica stood out to the committee as someone who could immediately step up to the job. She is a well-regarded public policy expert and someone who understands the challenges that face the entire business community in New York City. We look forward to the vision, advocacy and strategic planning she will bring to the MCC.”
    “When I talked with Ken about leaving MCC, I suggested that Jessica would be a great candidate and I couldn’t be more excited that she is going to take over the leadership of our active and dynamic chamber,” notes outgoing president, Ploeger.

    “I am thrilled to join the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce and eager to lead such a dynamic organization. It is an honor to follow in Nancy’s footsteps and build upon her many accomplishments. I look forward to working with Chamber staff, members, the local community and New York’s appointed and elected officials to ensure that Manhattan remains a great place to start and grow a business,” stated Jessica Walker, MCC President-designee.

    The MCC currently has 15,000 members and subscribers and is a key voice in the city for the small and mid-size businesses in Manhattan.  Advocating for positive legislation at all levels of government is a major focus of the Chamber.  “Jessica’s experience and strength in government relations will help MCC continue to stand up for our community,” quotes Ronald Paltrowitz, Vice Chairman, General Counsel, and registered lobbyist for the Chamber.



    Ms. Walker’s Professional Career:

    Partnership for New York City - Vice President, Government Affairs (June 2012 - Present) Director, Legislative Affairs (June 2010 - June 2012)

    New York Citizens’ Committee on Aging - Vice President, Board of Directors (October 2006 - December 2010)

    TRANSITIONING PROJECTS

    Multifamily buildings with greater than 75 units were formerly eligible under the C&I program. SBDI projects with an average peak demand in the 100-300kW range were formerly eligible under the C&I program. As of January 1st 2016, these former C&I projects that were not officially sold to a customer (per a signed  agreement with a customer to proceed with a work scope), will be re-directed to qualify for incentives only in the Multifamily and SBDI Programs respectively, per the new eligibility rules.

    Market Partners who have sold projects (i.e. have a signed work agreement with customers under the C&I Program as of Decemeber 31, 2015) will have a grace period to submit paperwork evident of that sold commitment. Such paperwork should be submitted to the C&I program on or before February 15, 2016 for
    participation in the former C&I EEPS. Projects that do not meet this criteria (jobs signed on or after January 1, 2016), must be transitioned to MFEEP or SBDI to qualify for incentives. Market Partners are encouraged to do the following to begin the transition process:

    For Multifamily projects, reach out to the current implementation contractor for MFEEP (The          Association for Energy Affordability), to initiate “Participating Contractor” status in this program,        and to work under the 2016 MFEEP guidelines.
