Message From Our Co-Chairwomen, Michelle McGivney-Spiridakis and Donna Perkosky
Welcome to the Paramus Regional Chamber of Commerce! If you’re a new business owner, an established business owner in Paramus, or a business from the surrounding area, we want to welcome you! Our focus is to grow your business, whether it is large or small.
As your Co-Chairwomen, our priorities are the businesses and the Paramus community. We’re committed to increasing the membership, enhancing member benefits, giving back to our community, and to create exciting new events throughout the year. We do that in a variety of ways from educational and networking opportunities to working with other Chambers through our relationship with the ICC (Inter-Chamber Consortium). We have also created new networking sub-groups, the Women Professional’s Networking and the Young Professionals Networking Group. These groups are designed to target specific demographics and enhance their experiences within the Chamber. Getting involved = Opportunities!
We want your membership to have value but you get what you put into it. We want all businesses to get involved in our monthly agenda of events. We have events that work well with whatever your schedule will allow. If you can’t attend an after-hours networking event then come to our 3-Minute Breakfast Networking. Are you interested in how state and local politics are affecting your business? Come and meet our community leaders. Your investment in your membership benefits you!
Paramus is a unique town filled with a rich history and is diverse in its type of businesses! We are the nation’s #1 retail zip code and Paramus is made up of large retail stores, small businesses, restaurants, schools for secondary education, Van Saun Park and the Bergen County Zoological Park. Paramus is a great place to live with its exceptional school system and the Paramus Education Foundation that supports grants to enhance the students’ educational experience.
If you are thinking about becoming a member, please contact us and we discuss the host of benefits that come with your membership. We want your business to succeed and grow with the help of the Paramus Regional Chamber of Commerce!

Message From Our Mayor, Richard LaBarbiera
As Mayor, I look forward to fostering and improving our relationship with the Paramus Regional Chamber of Commerce, its officers, and members. We share in common a pride and passion for the success of Paramus and its leadership in the State of New Jersey. Quoting President Ronald Reagan, “Each generation goes further than the generation preceding it because it stands on the shoulders of that generation. You will have opportunities beyond anything we’ve ever known.” I am confident that together we can provide greater opportunities for our business community and enjoy the success the founders of Paramus envisioned when the Borough was incorporated in 1922.
I look forward to the future of Paramus, and the many great things we can accomplish together.
Mayor Richard LaBarbiera
Borough of Paramus
