Pro-Business Council

"I really did not understand what the Business Council did until I went to the meeting. By attending I found that there are many things happening in our area. Hearing what is being developed and what opportunities enables me to think about how to best get involved in various aspects of our business community."
- Jerry Williams, President, Schuylkill Valley Sports 

The Pro-Business Council acts as a business advocate and serves as a liaison between Chamber Members and elected officials on the local, state, and federal levels. The Council looks for ways the Chamber can assist businesses through a proactive process of education and advocacy.
