Member Spotlight: DolMed Physician Services


Processing Medical Claims Accurately & Efficiently

When you receive a bill from a doctor’s office, you may not always realize it’s coming from a separate business. At Melissa Dolecki’s company, DolMed Physician Services LLC, she provides medical billing, as well as investigational projects, such as denied claims.

DolMed is based out of the same building as City Hall in Oil City, and Melissa began working for the company in 2016 as office manager. She had the opportunity to purchase the business in April 2019 and has become a Certified Professional Biller (CPB).

Since purchasing the company earlier this year, Melissa has added two new clients. Their current clients are located in Pennsylvania, New York, and Nevada, and future clients could be anywhere in the United States.

DolMed has four employees—three in the Oil City office and one based in Florida.

When asked what her favorite part of owning a business is, Melissa told us: “All of it.” She enjoys organizing, doing payroll, and the feeling of a job well done.

Although she has staff, Melissa likes to learn new clients’ software and processes before handing over the client to an employee.

Melissa enjoys that her business is in a “quaint” county in the middle of Northwest Pennsylvania, but also appreciates being able to reach anywhere in the country when necessary.

DolMed rarely speaks to an actual physician, and receives electronic files on secure networks to process claims accurately and efficiently.

Although they don’t always speak to a physician, DolMed appreciates their relationships with clients, in which Melissa told us: “When a client refers someone else to us, it’s the greatest compliment.”

Let Customers Know You’re a Chamber Member


MemberDecal19Over the years and throughout the world, membership in chambers of commerce has offered business owners credibility to consumers looking to purchase products and services. The Venango Area Chamber of Commerce has provided its members with the seal of approval from the early days when hand typed, mimeographed membership directories were distributed within the community to the modern day form of promotion through the chamber website and online membership directory.  One way to let customers know you’re a member of the Venango Area Chamber is by displaying a window cling.

You’ve seen them all over the region—The Venango Chamber proud member window cling, adorning the entry doors on over 400 businesses and organizations in our community.

By displaying this cling, you tell customers that you played an integral role in the success of the Venango area through your membership in the Chamber. 2019 “Proud Member” decals will be distributed within the next few weeks.

Member Spotlight: Crawford Area Transportation Authority


Partners in Transit, Because Every Trip Matters

CATA4

Public transportation is a necessity in any town, and the Crawford Area Transportation Authority (CATA) provides services to residents in our region. CATA offers fixed route service in Franklin, Oil City, Seneca, Titusville, Meadville, Saegertown, and Conneaut Lake, as well as door-to-door service in both Crawford and Venango Counties.

Started in 1979 in Crawford County, CATA provided service through contracted providers. In 2006, their General Manager decided to start delivering trips with CATA employees.

Crawford and Venango County joined together under a contract in 2016 and Venango officially joined the Authority a year and a half later. Since then, CATA has opened their state-of-the-art storage and maintenance facility in Meadville and is looking forward to the construction of the Oil City Multi-Modal Project.

“The communities and our partners have so much to offer,” said Laura King, HR Manager at CATA. “They have been wonderful to work with since CATA and Venango County Transit have merged.”

CATA has had exciting updates and accomplishments recently, including the announcement of newly designed VenanGO-buses and the acceptance of the FTA Administrators Award for Outstanding Public Service for the second time.

CATA employees go through a training program to prepare them for their role in serving passengers.

“We approach our riders, employees, and stakeholders with integrity and respect—our core principles,” said King. “Our service allows individuals to maintain their independence by assisting them to get where they need to go.”

CATA can serve anyone on their fixed route service; you simply pay your fare or purchase bus passes and ride. Their door-to-door service is open to the general public and also subsidized through the PA Lottery and other programs to allow for discounted service for individuals 65 and older or persons with disabilities.

Looking towards the future, CATA plans to continue to enhance their routes and will work hard to support the needs of their riders and community partners.

Meet Our Board – Trenton Moulin


Picture4Trenton Moulin is currently serving his second year as a member of our board. He previously served as president of the Chamber’s young professionals group, FLEX. He was a major presence in founding FLEX and establishing the group as an effective network of young professionals dedicated to empowering future leaders in the Venango region.  Trenton was awarded Young Professional of the Year in 2015.

Trenton graduated from the University of Pittsburgh and began working in nonprofit accounting before moving to HR recruiting. He later became the Director of Development at the American Red Cross. For the past seven years, Trenton has worked as the Executive Director of Bridge Builders Community Foundations, an organization focused on creating and growing endowments that benefit the needs in our region.

Outside of work, Trenton is hugely involved in the community and has served as a volunteer in a wide variety of organizations, including the Oil City Main Street Program and the Oil Region Library Association. In his free time, Trenton loves experiencing the outdoor recreation available in our area, including the rivers and trails. He also enjoys attending Pitt football games and, most importantly, spending quality time with his wife and two children.

Trenton loves the comradery he finds working in a close-knit community.  He enjoys the teamwork and sense of unity the working community shares.

“It’s great when a group of people get together to make something happen,” said Trenton.

His goal as a member of our board is to position the Chamber as the leading resource for the business community and the number-one generator of leaders in our region. He also continues his support of FLEX and would like to see the organization continue to promote the empowerment of our region’s young leaders who are equipped to help the area thrive.

Trenton envisions a future Venango Region that has rebranded itself as something not-quite-rural, not-quite-urban, but something in between that has found its niche, attracting new businesses and becoming a hub of new and exciting ideas.
