Hello Everyone and Welcome to the President’s Message Corner! On behalf of the entire Medford Business Association Board, I would like to say Happy New Year and thank you for a successful 2017. I want to personally thank the 2017 Executive Board for their hard work and dedication throughout the year and especially to Bill Stauts in his role as President. During the 2017 year we once again had 2 very successful events; The Art, Wine & Music Festival in conjunction with the classic car show which was held in June and the Oktoberfest which was held in September. These events could not have taken place without the hard work and dedication of the workers and volunteers, the sponsors, the participants, and of course the Medford Community. We will once again host these events in 2018, so be sure to check out the Event page for more information.
I want to take a moment to remind everyone about the importance of shopping local and using your local services. If you like having a community with businesses and services, than it is important to utilize them to keep them here. Sometimes it might be easier to go online, but it also takes away from the face to face interaction with each other. Shopping at your local store is not just a purchase, it’s an experience. Enjoying a stroll on the avenue, walking with your family from store to store, meeting the local business owners, it’s an opportunity to create lasting memories and meet new people. This year, with all the many resolutions you made, try adding just one more; commit to shopping local more often.
The Organization Summit was recently held on February 20th. A delicious breakfast was served at Medford Leas while representatives from Medford area organizations each spoke and outlined their agenda for the year. Each year this event presents an opportunity for organizations to share what their objectives are and gain insight from other organizational leaders. A review of coming events and procedures was presented by Beth Portocalis, Zoning Official & Zoning Board Secretary, followed by an update by Medford Mayor Charles Watson.
Join Us for this popular annual event including a continental breakfast and a very informative presentation designed to help your business' social networking presence.

If each household in Burlington County spent just $10 more each month at Burlco businesses, the resulting annual impact to the local economy would be about $19.9 MILLION DOLLARS!
For every $100 spent locally in independently owned stores, shops and restaurants, $44 to $83 is re-circulated in the local economy. When $100 is spent in national chains, only $14 to $43 stays in the local economy.
How we all benefit by shopping Burlington County:
◆ Keep Burlington County's economy strong and growing.
◆ Embrace local businesses, which create 80% of new jobs and often provide better wages and benefits
◆ Save time and money and protect the environment. Shopping locally saves travel time and gas money
◆ Get great products and services at competitive prices at any of Burlington County's 8,000 one-of-a-kind, independent businesses
◆ Create a sense of community. Community groups get 350% more support from local business owners than non-locally owned businesses.

Our Township is nestled between fertile farms and the Federal Pinelands Natural Reserve in Burlington County, New Jersey. Located 30 minutes from Philadelphia and 45 minutes from the Jersey shore, our Township serves as the hub of business and culture for this region. Unlike many communities, Medford has not lost its’ “soul” to the suburban sprawl which has consumed many of New Jersey’s towns.
Dedicated open space, private camps, bike paths and sidewalks allow for many recreational activities. With Medford’s border of a million acres of protected forest and over 50% of the township as dedicated open space and natural surroundings, we are assured of a quiet and healthy environment for the future.
Come Visit Medford New Jersey, and discover the beauty of this hidden gem on the edge of the vast Pine Barrens. Historic Medford Village’s quaint Main Street is lined with unique gift shops, boutiques, restaurants & cafes, and Medford's Art Center; which attracts visitors from throughout the area..
