Florham Park N.J. – April 13, 2022 – The perfect match has come to fruition with the merger of the Morris County Economic Development Alliance (MCEDA), the nonprofit 501(c)(3) of the Morris County Economic Development Corporation, and the Morris County Tourism Bureau (MCTB).
“Bringing together Tourism and Economic Development into one-unified structure offers an ideal mechanism to leverage and optimize our existing assets while setting the table for additional strategic growth initiatives,” stated Craig Schlosser, vice president of the Morris County Economic Development Corporation (MCEDC) and president MCEDA.
“The overlap and opportunity for a stronger-unified structure is apparent from a high-level,” he continued. “Both organizations focus on economic development. The Morris County Economic Development Corporation, which is a division of the Morris County Chamber of Commerce, focuses primarily on the business-to-business portion of economic development through supporting business growth, attraction and retention while the Tourism Bureau focuses on the business-to-consumer market.”

“Our 2022 Budget provides the high level of services Morris County residents have come to expect, especially since the pandemic hit, yet it also delivers the type of fiscal prudence demanded by tax-paying families dealing with historic inflation in America. This is the third consecutive year we have prevented an increase in the county tax rate. Still, we were able to increase spending on public health and public safety,” said Commissioner Deborah Smith, a member of the Board of Commissioners’ Budget Committee.
