The Lebanon Valley Chamber of Commerce is on the move.
The Chamber is relocating its offices to 989 Quentin Road, Lebanon. The move is scheduled for mid-October.
Offices for the Chamber have been at 604 Cumberland St. for the past 10 years. However, according to a statement from Chamber president and CEO Karen Groh, they need more space.
The Chamber – when not limited by pandemic restrictions – holds over 400 meetings/workshops on-site, she said in the statement. Programming is increasing, and the current capacity of the Chamber’s meeting room space is not adequate.
“Our programming has evolved over the past 5 years to include more educational workshops, development programs, and roundtable discussions,” Groh said in the statement. “Our current meeting rooms are often at maximum capacity which means we have to turn away attendees.”
The decision to move was vetted through a multi-year process including a search committee of Chamber members, extensive discussions at the executive and board level, and ultimately a board vote to relocate, according to the release.
“Our 2022-25 Strategic Plan has a heavy emphasis on educational programming,” Groh explained. “We are confident this move will increase our ability to provide more services and benefits to our large membership based in Lebanon County and surrounding communities.”
The new location provides an additional 1,500 square feet of space and almost double the occupancy in the two meeting rooms on-site.
The Chamber is planning an open house in November.
