Spring has Sprung at the Chamber

by Troy Garman, Board Chair, Greater Chambersburg Chamber of Commerce

181As the Chamber continues working to grow and strengthen each year, it is our goal to provide our members with the most valuable opportunities possible to get involved, network and grow their business. In order to do this, we adhere to short-term and long-term goals drafted and approved by our board of directors. These goals require us to elevate current efforts to better serve our members and the greater community.

To serve the evolving needs of our business community, Chamber events are evaluated regularly based on value to the membership, connection to the Chamber’s mission and financial impact on our organization. As a result of this evaluation, the Sip & Savor dinner event was created to replace the annual Dinner Dance. Since it began in 2014, Sip & Savor has been a huge hit with our members – it’s one of my favorite Chamber events. The evening provides an elegant networking opportunity along with highlighting member chefs and wineries for their delectable creations during a four-course meal.

This year, Sip & Savor will feature a masquerade theme and has moved to spring to better accommodate the schedules of our members. The event on Saturday, April 22 is sure to entertain with live and silent auctions, live music, raffles, networking and more. Reserve your seat by April 5 to support area businesses at this formal affair!

IMG_7066Each spring, the Chamber also recognizes outstanding individuals, businesses and organizations in our community that go above and beyond to serve their clients and make Chambersburg a great place to work and live. These awards, presented at the Annual Awards Breakfast on Thursday, April 6, are earned by members that deliver exceptional quality of service to their customers, are industry leaders or offer a unique approach to delivery of its goods or services and have a significant impact on the Chambersburg community. I look forward to this breakfast every year because I learn a great deal about what people are accomplishing in our community that I may not have otherwise known about. It’s uplifting to hear about all the innovation and initiative taking place right here in Chambersburg.

I’m excited for these upcoming spring events and hope to see you there!
