Greater Northern Lehigh

Kevin Schmidt, The Neffs National Bank Greater Northern Lehigh Chamber President 610-767-3875 •

With all the pending political changes for 2015, it was interesting to learn how these changes in both leadership and policy are going to affect us. Special thanks to Lehigh County Executive, Thomas Muller who provided insight at our February luncheon on how the changes at the state level will affect county government as well as the major priorities and concerns for the county in 2015.

With spring on its way, it is time to make a trip to our northern neighbors as we will be joining with the Carbon County Chamber of Commerce for an update on the Lehigh Carbon Community College. As you know, community college education has undergone many changes with the partnering with other colleges. This will be of great interest for parents and business owners alike.

We have narrowed down the candidates for our annual Greater Northern Lehigh Chamber Spirit Award event scheduled for April 18 and the honoree will be announced shortly. This year’s event will benefit Forgotten Felines and Fido’s and will feature a great meal, dancing, Chinese auction and more. Announcements may be made on Facebook, so be sure to like our page to keep in touch! Contact any board member if you are interested in attending and/or sponsoring our annual event!

Are you interested in becoming a member of GNLCC and the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce (GLVCC)? Not only do you get to help your community, but you get the opportunity to network and promote your business through various channels within the GLVCC. Reach out to myself or any board member for details on joining The Chamber and how membership can benefit you and your business!

We look forward to seeing you at our events, and as always support your local chamber members.
