Checking in with the Greater Wyoming Valley Chamber Councils – November 2022

We’re teaming up with community partners all over Northeastern Pennsylvania to bring you a closer look at what makes our amazing counties, cities, towns and villages so unique. Keep your eye on this space for regular contributions from local organizations, visitors’ bureaus, tourism boards, chambers and so much more.

Check Out What’s Going On With Our Chamber Councils

Keep an eye out for awesome Chamber events this November.

The Greater Wyoming Valley Chamber of Commerce wants to keep you updated each month with everything that their volunteer councils have planned this year, including featured upcoming events, community programs, and business community features!

Their Councils include the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council, Women’s Council, Young Professionals Council, Nonprofit Council, Government Affairs Council, and Ambassadors Council!


Upcoming Council Event Spotlight – Ugly Sweater Holiday Party!



Be sure to mark your calendars because we will be holding our 2nd Annual Chamber Ugly Sweater Holiday Party hosted by the Young Professional Council on December 15th. This holiday party invites members from every Chamber council and our community to network and support a great cause. There will be food, fun, and, of course, an Ugly Sweater Contest! We will also have basket raffles and surprises throughout the evening. Proceeds from this event will benefit Valley Santa, a local non-profit working to give Christmas to every child in Luzerne County. And, to tie it all together in the spirit of the holiday season, we will have the opportunity to volunteer with Valley Santa one week before the event on Wednesday, December 1st at 5:30 PM, where we will be assisting with gift wrapping! To attend the event, register HERE! To volunteer with us, email!
