New Website for the Chamber

Hi Everyone:

Since I came on board in July 2010, our goal has been to continue to update ourWebsite.  Thanks to our friends at Protocol 80, we launched a new look yesterday that I hope you all find pleasing.  We have more bells and whistles planned for the website this year, and  we are always looking for better ways to improve our website, which in turn helps our membership. So if you have any suggestions please send me your suggestions. Check out our website at


Our Search engine optimization has increased our traffic, and we hope with all these improvements that that traffic will continue to grow.  We also continue to see growth on our Facebook with 2217 friends. 

We also have moved our advertising banner to the top of the page, and have lowered our price to attract more business. 

Congratulations to our Board Member, Colette Roessler for being named the Main Street Manager.  Colette will do an outstanding job for Main Street!

Also, Congratulations to Zippo and W.R. Case CEO Greg Booth on his appointment to the Committee on Manufacturing by Pennsylvania.  We know that Greg will do an outstanding job!

Finally, don’t forget our first Business After Hours is Wednesday, January 25th at 5 pm at the New Main Street Mercantile.

See you on Main Street.  Ron

New year with new events!

Hi Everyone:

We are very excited at the Chamber with a new year starting and new events planned for 2012.  Starting in February we are having Kim Benjamin, Executive Director of the Bradford Water Authority speak on the Bradford Water System.  This will be held at the Chamber office and a lite brown bag lunch will be provided. 

Also in February we will be having a VIP breakfast and lunch for prospective members, with testimonials from some of our current members, and also to use as an opportunity to network with other businesses.

Business After Hours will start this year at the new Mercantile on Main Street on January 25th.  If you haven’t seen the Mercantile, this is your chance to network and see all the new products that they now have at one of Bradford’s landmark buildings.

We are also planning a Chamber Expo an a Non-Profit Summit/Fair in March.  Keep checking our website and facebook for more upcoming events!
