Greater Northern Lehigh Chamber of Commerce- Letter from the President

Greater Northern Lehigh Chamber President

While many organizations have been taking a summer break, your Chamber continues to be very active.  

Thanks to all who helped in the set up, sponsorships, donations and attended our annual picnic at the Slatington Trail Head.  This certainly was special as Slatington celebrated their 150th anniversary and we were honored to be able to participate/contribute to their celebration.   It was a great time to network as well as enjoy great food, games, music and friendship. It was also the perfect opportunity to showcase the hard work by The Venture Group in making this a family recreation destination.  If you haven’t had a chance to visit the Trailhead, make sure you come visit us and all the trails the greater northern Lehigh area has to offer!

Next were the 150th Anniversary parade and the gala celebration.    It was great to see so many people come out to show their support for the community.   While the celebration may have ended, you can still show your support by purchasing one of the limited ornaments commemorating this milestone. The cost is $15 with the net proceeds going back into the community.  Please check our website for details on this ornament and all other remaining ornaments. 

It was then onto our planning session.  Your Board of Directors came up with some great programs and events for the upcoming year. .  Even though some of our priorities were set, we still welcome any of your ideas!

Speaking of great programs, our September 9 meeting at the Otherside Restaurant at noon won’t disappoint.  Our friends at Equinox will be discussing HR and Healthcare and how you can be compliant.  With all the new and pending regulations this is so important for any size company.  Mark your calendar!

And as always-support your local chamber businesses!
