Pike County Chamber “Member Only” Seminar on Gas Lines in Pike County


Posted on July 29th, 2013
The Pike County Chamber of Commerce will be continuing their Breakfast Seminar Series on August 6, 2013 with the topic of “Kinder Morgan’s Northeast Upgrade Project”, with Guest Speaker Mr. Allen Fore, the Director of Public Affairs for Kinder Morgan.

Kinder Morgan Energy Partners is proposing to expand its Tennessee Gas Pipeline (Tennessee) in order to increase natural gas deliveries to the growing Northeast markets. Through its Northeast Upgrade Project, Kinder Morgan plans to enhance Tennessee’s existing 300 Line and associated facilities to provide for additional natural gas transportation.

The Tennessee Pipeline, which supplies many areas of the country with plentiful and inexpensive energy, is owned by Kinder Morgan Corporation. They are often asked to adjudicate numerous concerns of many, often conflicting, interest groups. Our seminar will look at understanding the needs, the pressures, options and strategies that make those often difficult decisions workable and the current status of the project and how this affects the local and national economy.

At Kinder Morgan, Allen manages public affairs, government relations, and community relations activities for existing company assets and major expansion projects. Allen has more than 25 years of experience in law, government, public affairs and public relations at the local, state, and national levels. Before joining Kinder Morgan, Mr. Fore was a Senior Vice President at Fleishman-Hillard, an international communications company. Mr. Fore has served in the Bush Administration and was an assistant attorney general of Illinois and general counsel to the lieutenant governor of Illinois. Mr. Fore was a Ronald W. Reagan Scholar and earned his B.A. degree at Eureka College. He received a Juris Doctor degree from Valparaiso University.

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 Tuesday, August 6, 2013. This “Member Only” seminar is $15.00 per person for current Pike Chamber members and you must RSVP to reserve your space by calling 570-296-8700 no later than August 5th.

The Networking Event takes place at the Pike Physical Therapy & Fitness Center on Tuesday, August 13th from 5:30p.m. to 7:30p.m. The Center will be showcasing their newest addition to the Center – their Endless Pool for Fitness & Aquatic Therapy.

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 now FREE for Pike Chamber members or $10.00 for non-members. There will be complimentary appetizers, refreshments, a 50/50 raffle and door prizes. Door prizes are needed; if you would like to donate a door prize, please call ahead to let us know. The prizes make it an exciting evening along with the 50/50 raffle.

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; be creative and people will remember you.
