Important Update - Montville Chamber of Commerce Annual Awards Banquet Postponed

Due to ever-evolving health risks associated with the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Montville Township Chamber of Commerce is postponing its Annual Awards Banquet scheduled for Saturday, March 14, 2020.  We are looking to re-schedule the event in the future and hope that all of the recipients and attendees will be able to join us to honor our awardees at that time.  We will advise when a date has been selected, which may be slightly delayed until public officials and private companies have a better understanding of any health risks from public gatherings. 
If you have already purchased tickets, sponsored or made contributions to the banquet, we will apply them to the re-scheduled event.  However, if you're unable to attend, we will issue you a refund.  Please contact the chamber office at
if you have any questions.
