Public Policy Committee welcomes two new members

John Hayes, New Tripoli Bank
Public Policy Committee Chair

Welcome to two new members of the Chamber’s Public Policy Committee: John Pruzinsky and Donald Flad.

John Pruzinsky of New Enterprise Stone & Lime will be our representative for Whitehall Chamber of Commerce. He is a current board member of the Western Lehigh Chamber. As Area Sales Manager for New Enterprise, he has extensive experience in construction materials and services. He is a graduate of Lehigh University and has previously served as Planning Commissioner with Whitehall Township.

Donald Flad, Jr. will be our representative for the LGBT Council where he is a Council member. He is Community Outreach and Membership Team Leader with Sam’s Club in Bethlehem. Donald has extensive community experience, currently serving as Phillipsburg Rotary Club President as well as other civic organizations. He is a graduate of Penn State University.

As we all enjoy summertime (and get those snow blowers ready), we are in our planning phase now for where we would like to see the committee active in 2017-2018. In addition, we are actively partnering with other organizations, such as the Pennsylvania Bankers Association and Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh, in areas of mutual interest. This is all designed to ensure that your Chamber has the strongest voice possible and increase our ability to serve you, our membership.

In addition, we encourage our local chambers and councils to be active in their communities. You have a voice in local issues, use it!

Thanks to all of you for your support and confidence in us.
