A Message from Chairpersons Joseph Jaconetta & Paul Haas

For generations, our Chamber’s programs and events have garnered
the praise and admiration of business owners and families throughout
the State of Connecticut and beyond. Our programs and events are the
platform through which we achieve our core purpose. They allow our
members to develop beneficial relationships that serve and enhance a
thriving regional business community. Participation in our programs
and events is the means through which our members get the most out
of their membership.
In 2020, I ask each of you to pick a Chamber program or event. Become
a sponsor of the event. Join the committee responsible for planning
the event and help guide it to a successful conclusion. Attend the event
with your colleagues and enjoy the experience.
Your business is more than a website, and the relationships that are vital to your business are
much more than contacts on your smart-phone. Participate in our programs and events and you
will give an identity to your business and develop relationships that will benefit your business for
many years to come.
Best wishes for a healthy and successful New Year.
Very truly yours,
Joseph P. Jaconetta, Imm. Past Chair

“Why should I join the chamber?” I get that question a lot, my answer:
Because the Connecticut River Valley Chamber is the finest business
organization in Connecticut at connecting members through dynamic
programs and events.
That is a bold statement. And it’s the reason we exist.
Providing entrepreneurs with opportunities to interact with one another
is a formula that works. Every week I hear stories of connections made
that would not have happened if not for a chamber event where members
connected creating mutual opportunity for growth. It’s like a spider web.
The web starts small with the desire of someone to get involved as a volunteer or meet others at a
networking event. The web expands as connections are built reaching further and further into the
marketplace benefiting our members and their businesses.
Volunteering for a special event, serving on a chamber committee, attending a networking event or
becoming a sponsor is a win/win for the chamber and the member or organization that participates.
There is a correlation between the time and talent invested in chamber activities and the return on
that investment.
In 2020 the chamber will highlight the stories of members who invest more than their dues by
describing the connections they are making to improve their business and our community.
The chamber is here to help you leverage your passion and grow your business at the same time.
What is your connection story? Share yours with us via social media using #crvconnectionstory.

Business Person of the Year
Beth Schluger, CEO & Found of The Hartford Marathon Foundation

Beth Shluger is the founder and director of the Hartford Marathon
Foundation, a nonprofit organization that produces 35+ fitness events
annually including road races, triathlons, and run training programs for
adults and children. HMF’s events take place throughout CT, MA and RI
with participation from over 50,000 runners. HMF’s mission is to inspire
and motivate people to become physically fit. We believe that running
can unite a community and inspire people to live a healthy lifestyle.
The Hartford Marathon Foundation staged the largest inaugural 5K in the
world in 2013 to benefit the Sandy Hook School Support Fund. The result
was a donation of $475,000 dollars. HMF was the largest single donor in
the United States to the Sandy Hook Fund and was awarded for the “best
amateur sporting event in the United States” by Sports Travel magazine.
In her spare time Beth Shluger runs road races throughout the northeast, has completed 15
marathons, conducts educational wine tastings throughout her community and loves traveling the
globe on her bicycle. She is married to Superior Judge Kenneth Shluger and together they have
raised their two amazing children, David and Olivia.

Special Interest Groups

POW (Power of Women) HERstory in the Making is the Chamber’s revamped
initiative for professional women. Gatherings are held to foster business growth
through connecting, learning, socializing and building authentic relationships.
The Chamber espouses to be one whose women members support and promote
other women.
In 2019 POW helped raise donations for Coventry House (a division of
InterCommunity, Inc.), as well as East Hartford, Glastonbury and Marlborough
Food Banks.

In its second year, SPARC has continued to make Connecticut a greater state
to work and live for our young professionals. The group’s focus is on altruism,
education and social activities which promote personal growth, family
enrichment and peer relations.
Since its inception, SPARC is proud to have supported or raised donations for:
Glastonbury’s Trunk or Treat, Team Hot AIR, Mercy Housing & Shelter Corporation,
Franklin H. Mayberry School in East Hartford, The Jordan Porco Foundation, No
Kid Hungry, Autism Families CONNECTicut and Foodshare. Please contact the
Chamber if you’re interested in hosting a SPARC event or getting involved.
