Be a part of some of the region’s largest events involving the local economy, investment opportunities, government affairs, business networking, and professional connections. Our events create a unique platform for businesses to be at the forefront of transformational change and forward movement in the Erie community.
At the intersection of business and government, you'll find the opportunity for transformation.
If you are:
• an engaged citizen and community-minded professional;
• interested in becoming a stronger advocate for the business community;
• curious about upcoming legislation and regional projects;
• invested in the progress moving Erie forward;
• eager to learn more about policy initiatives;
...then we hope to see you on September 18th for the State and Congressional Forum to exchange ideas, envision a vibrant future, and identify collaborative solutions together.
During this brand new event, attendees will have an opportunity to engage federal and state representatives about current events and transformational projects under consideration for our region. There will be a spirited discussion on the ins and outs of reinvesting in our community, the important role of business and the local economy, and how local organizations can collaborate and participate in Erie's economic evolution. For event questions, please contact Amy Murdock.
Dust off your favorite flannel and vest for a low-key networking event with the Erie Regional Chamber – Fall Fest 2020 on September 30th!
The Erie Regional Chambers Annual Fall Fest is a time for Erie's business community to enjoy each other's company in a casual setting during one of our region's most beautiful times of the year. Catch up with colleagues while enjoying a smorgasbord of eats and treats from Calamari's Catering.
Grazing stations will be spread throughout the event and include bruschetta and tapenades bar, carving stations, skewer and kabob bar, potato station, seafood bar, seasonal grilled vegetables, and more! Each station will feature a seasonal brew or wine from Erie Beer Company and 5&20/Mazza Vineyards. Cap it off with a cup of flavored coffee and a plate full of goodies from the delectable dessert spread (think cheesecake, beignets, lemon bars, cannolis) guaranteed to satisfy any sweet tooth. We'll also have live music from The RiffRiders, a local blues band that lives on the edge of rock'n'roll. Event questions, please contact Colleen Gross.
Join us for Erie Homecoming 2020 on October 29 and 30 and learn how one community's commitment to its legacy of grit, hard work, and perseverance is leading its economic evolution through public, private, and philanthropic partnerships on behalf of its people. We are a community ready to rise to the occasion during a time of global uncertainty and civil unrest. Collectively, our community has taken time to reflect on how we redefine our economic development ecosystem and increase the intentionality behind projects, people, and businesses in our region so that our future investments in time, talent, and treasure build equity, transcend generational decline, and inspire others to be part of the Erie renaissance.
Erie Homecoming 2020: Erie's Economic Evolution will give attendees the opportunity to reveal the hero within themselves and ignite the beginning of a legacy with lasting impact for future generations to come. Being a hero isn't just about an accomplishment; it's about influence and positively affecting those around you, making a difference in the lives of many. If you act when others are passive and build bridges when others are divisive, then you, too, can be a hero for a community that in some way shaped the foundation of who you are today. Event questions, please contact Brett Wiler.
