EONJ Strategic Alliance Partners

Alliance Partners Enrich the EO Experience for Our Members.

EONJ has established relationships with a number of local NJ businesses that provide tremendous value to our members. Each of our alliance partners have designated representatives, many times the business owners themselves, who engage regularly at EO events and beyond. What’s most amazing about the Strategic Alliance Program is that our partners also exhibit the core values of EO and have become valued peers within the chapter. The result is a true synergy, bringing ideas and energy to our members and partners alike. Take a moment to explore the list below to learn more about EONJ’s current alliances.
