At the end of the first quarter of another year, we are excited to share how much has already been accomplished by you and your chamber.
Continuing to follow our strategic plan and the commitment to connect business to business, the Chamber’s Annual Dinner brought together over 200 business representatives to celebrate success in the region.
To add to the excitement, the new website at www.venangochamber.org was launched that very day. The new website put our member businesses front and center, sharing the stories of what they do and providing a dynamic directory that will continue to add promotional value to each listing.
This quarter, members met on several occasions, including the Lee James Business Mixer, the Oil City High School Career Fair, and the Cranberry Mall Expo. April, we’ll host our first Membership 101, where you can learn how to best utilize your membership listing.
Leadership Venango met each month, in January at UPMC, in February at Clarion University – Venango, and in March at Komatsu Mining Corp. After two more sessions, this first class of 13 will graduate on May 22. Save the date to join them for their celebration that evening from 5 to 7 p.m.
Planning is well underway for the Oil Heritage Festival, with a few tweaks planned to this year’s event.
A new offering for members are Tech Talks, held on the third Friday of each month, at the Chamber from 8 to 9 a.m. This round table discussion is perfect for those who are already established on social media, looking for peers to network with, and share tips or explore challenges. Contact us if you are interested in participating in the next meeting.
Now that Spring has arrived and we all begin to move about more, we invite you to stop by the Chamber, let us know a great time to visit you, or check out our calendar for the next chance to meet up at an event!
