Western Lehigh Chamber of Commerce

May 2015

Letter from the President
Michael J. Shafer, Esq., Zator Law
Western Lehigh Chamber President
610-432-1900 •

The Western Lehigh Chamber of Commerce’s luncheon meetings with the East Penn Chamber of Commerce have gotten off to a late start the past few months. The March event was held at the new PPL Arena where our members attended a Phantoms game, and in April we held an evening mixer at the Good Shepherd rehabilitation facility.  Both events were well attended, and provided a nice change of pace from our typical afternoon programs.

It is quickly becoming apparent that the PPL Arena will be an asset to the entire Lehigh Valley.  Our members enjoyed early access to the arena for a pre-game networking session prior to the Phantoms game.  The tour and mixer of the Good Shepherd rehabilitation facility was equally as exciting.  It was fascinating to see the state of the art rehabilitation techniques being employed at Good Shepherd.

This past year the WLCC and the EPCC have had great success in holding events in our region that have attracted interest from outside of our area.  Having events in Allentown at the PPL Arena and Good Shepherd was a great opportunity for our members to explore the exciting things happening outside of the Western Lehigh and East Penn regions.  That is one of the best parts of The Chamber in that membership with one organization allows our members to engage locally and regionally.
