NJJBA Addresses Changing Times

(Courtesy of NJJBA) On March 4, the New Jersey Jewish Business Alliance hosted an informative webinar, “Changing Times: What It Means For Your Business.” The event was an outstanding success as members of NJJBA joined together to discuss what business should expect from the new administration and Congress.

Hearing from D.C. influencers and policy experts, attendees had the opportunity to gain insights and knowledge about developments in key policy areas. The keynote speaker, former U.S. Sen. Robert Torricelli (D-NJ), discussed the economy, the environment, taxes and trade. He addressed the economic consequences of the pandemic, advising businesses that the full extent of the impact has not been fully realized in Washington or in our communities. Supporting current sanctions against Iran, Torricelli stressed the need for caution when determining to what extent the U.S. reopens nuclear accords.

The panel was made up of D.C. insiders and prominent federal lobbyists Chelsey Penrod Hickman and Rob Zucker, both partners with Winning Strategies. Noting the Democratic control in Washington, Zucker emphasized that “people can be most effective and policy is best made when we are able to include both Republicans and Democrats.”

The panelists addressed issues from the national minimum wage efforts and infrastructure spending to international trade. The event was moderated by Ted Zangari, an attorney with Sills, Cummis & Gross. He noted that even the seemingly big-ticket issues, such as international trade, are still of huge importance to New Jersey-based firms of small to modest size.

The event was chaired by Maksim Sheynam, SVP of government banking at Investors Bank.

NJJBA would like to extend a thanks to all those in attendance and the speakers for an incredible afternoon of discussion and reflection.
