HAIL TO THE CHIEF – For the second time in eight years, Matt Dorans has taken the helm at the Bayonne Chamber of Commerce.

When Bayonne Chamber of Commerce President Vince Virga passed the torch of leadership to Matt Dorans recently it was a familiar scene, since it was Dorans who passed it to Virga four years ago.

But while only four years have passed, many impactful events have changed the landscape for business in Bayonne: a major storm that throttled and crippled the city, a change in municipal administration, and two new infrastructure programs that while they are good for the city, have presented their own challenges and opportunities.

So Dorans is hitting the ground running, building on what Virga achieved.

Saying that Virga reinvigorated the chamber, put it on the right track, and took it to a higher level, Dorans said he will keep involved members interested and energize others to participate.

“I think Vinnie’s biggest mantra was the involvement of the members,” Dorans said. “Get them involved, get their voices heard, and bring up the support of membership.”

Taking an already active board and opening it up to more and more members is job one for the new president. One of his first moves will be to take the monthly board meeting and open it to the general membership on an every-other-month basis.
