Northeast Chamber of Commerce to host business card exchange

The Great­er North­east Phil­adelphia Cham­ber of Com­merce will hold a busi­ness card ex­change on Thursday, Ju­ly 31, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Men’s and Boys’ Store, loc­ated at 10 Fet­ters Mill Square (near Red Li­on Road and Hunt­ing­don Pike).

The event is be­ing co-sponsored by Hunt­ing­don Val­ley Bank and Vil­lage Res­taur­ant and Ca­ter­ing.

Mean­while, the busi­ness sup­port group signed 19 new mem­bers in May and June, ac­cord­ing to pres­id­ent Al Tauben­ber­ger.

“I have been here 22 years, and I can’t re­call a more pro­duct­ive two-month peri­od in terms of new mem­bers,” he said. “A lot of this mo­mentum can be dir­ectly at­trib­uted to our an­nu­al Busi­ness Expo in May, where folks got the op­por­tun­ity to see what we’re all about.”

Un­der board chair­man Kent C. Lufkin, pres­id­ent and CEO of 3rd Fed Bank, grow­ing and re­tain­ing mem­ber­ship has been a pri­or­ity. He ad­ded long­time North­east Re­altor Charles E. Bo­land and Theresa Guld­in, of Tomp­kins VIST Bank in Fox Chase, to the mem­ber­ship com­mit­tee.

The com­mit­tee pro­duced new ma­ter­i­als and in­sti­tuted in­cent­ives, in­clud­ing a 90-day risk-free tri­al mem­ber­ship. Busi­nesses with up to 10 em­ploy­ees can join the GN­PCC for $275 per year.
