What will be YOUR impact?


Half way there.

Since the last time you heard from the Steering Committee, we have:

Set ourselves a June 30 deadline to reach 100 members. We are very much on track to get there, with 56 members as of today.

Scheduled six events in the next 4 weeks, where prospective members can meet current members, and learn about Impact100.

Our current geographical reach encompasses East Orange, Essex Fells, Little Falls, Maplewood, Millburn, Montclair, Nutley, Short Hills, South Orange, Verona, West Caldwell, and West Orange.

Our website is constantly being updated. You can check it out here.
