Charles A. Bruder, a Member of the Bridgewater-based law firm Norris McLaughlin, P.A. and Co-Chair of its Executive Compensation & Employee Benefits Group, was on a panel discussing the topic “Fundraising: The Strategies That Work,” at a seminar entitled “Business Perspectives in Non-Profit Management: The Next Generation.” The seminar, held on Monday, March 8, 2010, at Raritan Valley Community College, was hosted by the Hunterdon County Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by the Chamber in conjunction with TD Bank, Somerset County Business Partnership, United Way of Hunterdon County, United Way of Somerset County, and both counties.
