The Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce announced the keynote speaker for the Annual Salute to Working Women Luncheon will be Christina Renna.
Renna currently serves as president and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce Southern New Jersey. The Salute to Working Women will be held at noon on June 17 at the Ocean City Yacht Club.
Prior to being with the Chamber, in 2010, Renna was tapped by Gov. Chris Christie to serve in his administration, serving in several different capacities including director of Intergovernmental Affairs.
In that role, she dealt directly with state and local government officials across New Jersey, and as the primary point person to all business organizations and Chambers of Commerce in New Jersey as the liaison to the business community within the administration.
In 2010, Renna was named as one of SJ Biz Magazine’s first-ever list of rising stars in the South Jersey business community. Additionally, in 2019 and 2020, Renna was listed on NJBIZ’s Power List as one of the most powerful people in New Jersey’s business community.
Mary McGuckin, manager of the Lightkeeper’s Society at Shore Medical Center, will receive the 2021 Salute to Working Women Award and will be honored at the Chamber of Commerce luncheon. The award recognizes women in business for their outstanding professional and personal achievements.
McGuckin is the manager of the major philanthropic donor societies at Shore Medical Center. One of the programs she oversees is the Lightkeeper’s Society, which provides 24/7 concierge-like benefits to the medical center’s major gift donors.
She also oversees the Grateful Patient program that supports and identifies caregivers in the institution through peer recognition and community awareness.
McGuckin also actively works with individuals in the community that wish to leave a planned gift or bequest to the hospital through the DiOrio Society.
She currently serves on the board for the Ocean City Ecumenical Council that supports the city’s food cupboard and clothes closet, the Ocean City Chamber of Commerce, and is on the Board of Governors for the Ocean City Yacht Club.
Previously, McGuckin served on the boards of the Ocean City Garden Civic Association (2000-2008) and the Ocean City Community Center (2009-2012) which was instrumental in raising public awareness and donations for the expansion of the community center.
The luncheon will honor all working women at home or in the workforce at the Ocean City Yacht Club.
The luncheon is open to the public and is $30 per person. For more information, to make a reservation, or to place a congratulatory ad in the program book, please contact the Chamber office at 609-399-1412 or email email@example.com.
