Posted on February 2nd, 2016
The Pike County Chamber of Commerce is happy to announce its 3rd Thursday Breakfast which will be held at the Best Western Inn @ Hunts Landing in Matamoras PA on Thursday February 18th, 2016 from 7:00am to 8:30am. Our guest speaker will be Mike Sullivan from the Pike County Economic Development Authority who will be discussing with “All about Pike.”

“Ever since the “Great Recession” of 2008 the US economy has changed. This is especially true for Pike County, PA. What we used to know about extraordinary growth, migration, employment, wages, Real Estate and opportunities, all have changed. Have we fully recovered in 2016? What changes have taken place? What opportunities remain in our new economy? Are we in a good position for doing business here in Pike County? What about our labor force and wages? What is the future of Economic Development”? Said Mr. Sullivan from Pike County Economic Development Authority.

Each of these key questions will be discussed using the freshest data and the best sources. Discussions about doing your own research and finding your own trends and opportunities will be discussed. This seminar will discuss the larger marketplace than just the borders of Pike County. To make reservations for the breakfast, please contact the Pike County Chamber of Commerce by February 16th, 2016 at 570-296-8700.
