The Chamber's Annual Meeting

We hope you enjoyed the Annual Meeting as much as we did!!  It was a great event, attended by over 1,000 people.  If you didn't make it and would like a recap, here are some notes on the event.

First, make sure to check out the news coverage in the Morning Call and Express-Times.  Both focused on the remarks of John McGlade, CEO of Air Products, who was the featured speaker at the event.

For a "live" read of how the event went, you can check out the Twitter feed #ChamberAM.  This will show you our live tweets of the event, as well as others who were tweeting about it and using the hashtag.  Having a centralized hashtag for live-tweeting makes life a lot easier to track an event, even if you aren't there.

Also, if you get a chance, check out Coca-Cola of the Lehigh Valley's Facebook page.  We had worked with them to help set up their Facebook page, and then at Annual had it's world premier.  Coca-Cola gave away two tickets two the San Diego Zoo (to see the Polar Bears, of course) for whoever answered the following question correctly: Of the 286 Iron Pigs Games, how many were sell-outs?  To answer the question, you had to write on Coca-Cola's wall.  Ten got the answer right (229), so we held a drawing and Jane Stone was the winner.

On a personal level, I will say that the event was a blast and an overwhelming success.  It is such a joy to be able to work for an organization that can bring together over 1,000 of the best and brightest of the Lehigh Valley, and trite as this may sound, it's a real privilege to be able to serve the Valley in this way.

We hope you enjoyed the event as much as we did!
