Business After Hours

Host a Business After Hours

The ERCGP Business After Hours is the Erie business community's premier monthly networking event! An average of 200-300 member business professionals attend making connections, exchanging ideas, and talking business in a relaxed social atmosphere.

The events are hosted by a different member business each month, giving them the opportunity to showcase their workplace.

Why not gain exposure for your business by becoming a Business After Hours host? The 2017 calendar is sold out and 2018 is going quickly!

Certificates of Origin

A Certificate of Origin (CO) is a document which states the origin of goods being exported. Virtually every country in the world considers the origin of imported goods when determining what duty will be assessed on the goods or, in some cases, whether the goods may be legally imported at all.

A Certificate of Origin is an export document certifying that the referenced goods were produced in the United States. The ERCGP provides Certificates of Origin to chamber members as a benefit of membership free of charge.

If you need a Certificate of Origin issued by the ERCGP, please:

  • Complete, sign and have the appropriate Certificate of Origin
  • Attach all original shipment invoices for all items referenced on the certificate
  • All requests and documents must be made in person at the ERCGP office, located at 208 East Bayfront Parkway, Erie, PA
Renaissance Center Erie, PA 

 Notary Service

We have a Notary Public on staff who can assist your business with signature notary services. Another free benefit of membership in the ERCGP!

Simply bring the documents needed to our office, our Notary will witness the signature, apply our seal to the document, and you will be on your way!
