President’s Message UPCOMING EVENTS Th e C ha m be r C an H el p! Will Rogers once quipped, “It ain’t bragging if it’s true!” Some of the most satisfying experiences that occur in the Chamber world involve the different ways we can help our members – such as networking to expand your business connections, leadership training and educational sessions on business matters, government advocacy on individual and broad public policy issues; small business lending, identifying building and site locations, and many more. The challenge is fi nding appropriate ways to tell others about those successes, not from the standpoint of self- aggrandizing, but rather to spread the word to others on how they can also benefi t from their Chamber membership. In this month’s edition we are introducing #TheChamberCanHelp. This awareness initiative will provide a platform for our members to tell their stories of how their Chamber relationship benefi tted their businesses in very specifi c ways. Using this tagline, members will get a chance to tell their stories – in simple vignettes -- that will alert others to the services our staff and volunteers can bring to their operations. At the same time, the campaign will promote the participating businesses to the more than 1,400 Chamber members (and thousands of contacts) in our network. It’s a win-win for everyone! I want to encourage all of our members to participate in #TheChamberCanHelp as we tell our collective stories, promote our local businesses, and celebrate success in a very public way, because it ain’t bragging… if it’s true! 2 • The Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce Dickson City PA WEDNESDAY, OCT. 10, 2018 • 11:30 - 1:00PM L AUNCH E V E NT THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2018 AV Restaurant & Lounge US CONGRESS 8 TH DISTRICT CANDIDATE FORUMS THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2018 PNC Field - Montage Mountain Road OPERATIONS OF THE PENNSYLVANIA JUDICIARY & HOW THEY IMPACT BUSINESS PRESENTED BY THE SUPERIOR COURT OF PENNSYLVANIA CO-SPONSORED BY THE GREATER SCRANTON & WILKES-BARRE CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2018 4PM @ Lackawanna College
