Outdoor Networking Event & Family Fun!


Posted on June 3, 2014
The Pike County Chamber of Commerce along with event sponsor Costa's Family Fun Park would like to invite you to an Outdoor Networking Event on Wednesday, June 18th (rain date June 19th) at the Costa's Family Fun Park on 2111 Route 6 in Hawley from 5:00p.m. to 7:00p.m.

Everyone (members/non-members) is welcome to bring your friends and business associates along with plenty of business cards and take advantage of this event to network your business, organization or upcoming event! You will have many chances to make new contacts and get more business no matter what industry you are in. Making those important face to face contacts at this relaxing evening event is such a powerful and affordable marketing tool that can help your business grow.

Admission at the door is FREE for Pike Chamber members or $10.00 for non-members. There will be a complimentary hot dog & hamburger cookout, refreshments, a 50/50 raffle and door prizes. Also Costa's will be offering a special Activity Wristband for $15.00 per family member. If you would like to donate a door prize, please call ahead to let us know.

Door prizes are an easy marketing trick that allows the winner to take home something from your business with your contact information for future business to you. Some good examples of a door prize would be a gift basket/bag filled with things from your company ie: brochures, magnets etc. explaining what you do, maybe a nicely wrapped box of samples if you are a baker or candy maker, a gift certificate for breakfast/lunch/dinner attached to a bottle of wine or Perrier. Even if you can't put together something from the office, pick up a bouquet of flowers and attach your business card to it; people will remember you.

For further information contact the Chamber by e-mailing info@pikechamber.com or calling the Chamber office at 570-296-8700.
If you need directions call Costa's at 570-226-8585.

Unemployment Compensation Separation Issues Breakfast Seminar


Posted on May 2, 2014
The Pike County Chamber of Commerce will be continuing their Third Thursday Breakfast Seminar Series on May 8, 2014 with the topic of "Unemployment Compensation Separation Issues."

The Pike County Chamber, the Pike County Workforce Development Agency and the PA Department of Labor & Industry are working together on a seminar series of business topics throughout the year and unemployment compensation was one of the most asked about issues.

This important business seminar will explain the process the UC Service Center follows when investigating and issuing determinations relating to quits and discharges including: explaining the fact-finding process, how the UC Service Center rules without fact-finding information from a party, what factors determine if a separation is a "quit" or a "discharge", what determines "burden of proof", how certain exceptions under the Federal Trade Readjustment Act are factored into determinations and what additional steps are available if there is a disagreement with the determination.

We all know how there are times the UC program seems confusing, so be sure to bring any questions or concerns you have. We hope this seminar, along with a chance to hear issues other employers are experiencing, can help your business better understand the UC program.

Held at the Best Western Inn at Hunt's Landing in Matamoras, PA, the program begins promptly at 7:30a.m. with breakfast ready at 7:15a.m. on Thursday, May 8, 2014.

It is $15.00 per person for Pike Chamber members and $20.00 per person for Non-members and you must RSVP to reserve your space by calling 570-296-8700 or e-mail info@pikechamber.com no later than May 6th.
