We take the success of your business very seriously and that is why we partner with the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry, and chamber partners throughout the country to work with our elected officials on issues important to your business.
We educate you on issues that may affect your business in our weekly e-newsletter. We also connect you with our elected officials via our Elected Officials Reception so that you can have a one on one conversation with them in a relaxed atmosphere.
Your business will be listed categorically in our printed Community Profile and Membership Directory, which is given to all Chamber members, handed out to residents and tourists who visit our office and distributed at select Chamber events. This directory is also produced electronically and shared on our website.
Your business is also listed categorically in our rack card size directory distributed for us by the Huntingdon County Visitors Bureau.
