Greater Northern Lehigh Chamber of Commerce: Letter from the President, Kevin Schmidt

Special thanks to our Greater Northern Lehigh Chamber of Commerce
committee and volunteers for putting on a fantastic Spirit Award celebration and to all the attendees that made it a success. It was great to see Ed Bechtel receive recognition for his dedication to the community. Ed is not only a successful business owner in our community but he truly knows the power of partnerships and giving back to our community. Thank you to Ed and his family for making the Greater Northern Lehigh area a wonderful place to live and play!

Many of our past award winners were also in attendance to congratulate Ed. In addition, we raised much needed money for Forgotten Felines & Fidos of Germansville. If you are in the market for a new furry member of your family, be sure to stop by and consider adopting one of the felines that have available! Overall, the 2015 Spirit Award dinner was a fantastic night of dancing, networking and having fun with friends and family.

How would you like to hear from our surrounding township representatives in an open forum? On May 12 we are bringing them to you. This is the perfect opportunity to gain insight into the issues our local governments are facing and the potential for growth and other changes in our communities. Officials from our surrounding townships and boroughs will be on hand to address your concerns and answer any questions. This special luncheon and networking event will be held at the Otherside Restaurant in Neffs. You can register online at or by calling Alice at 484-274-2080.

On June 9, our monthly luncheon will also feature the election of officers and our Board of Directors. The slate of nominees has been sent to all members and is listed on our website.

As you are aware, we try to provide a mix of educational and mixer events.  We value your input as to how we are doing.  Please contact us with any ideas for future events.
