Sonia Smith - Program Administrator, County of Bucks
I have been a Chamber member for almost 10 years. During that time, I have developed many business relationships that have led to referrals for the County of Bucks Business Services. Whenever I am asked for a professional recommendation, I suggest accessing the Chamber membership list for the specific service or product provider you are seeking.
You can get to know your Chamber members by joining a committee or roundtable. I am involved in the Women’s Resources Roundtable and the Economic/Government Relations Committee. Since 2009, the County of Bucks has partnered with the LBCCC and Fulton Bank to create a free workshop series for businesses. We are able to deliver quality programming to the Chamber membership that is promoted through the Chamber’s marketing tools.
And I would be remiss without adding that some of the business relationships I’ve cultivated have turned into friendships. When I was diagnosed with Stage II breast cancer in 2011, the support and encouragement I received from Chamber members, as I was undergoing treatment, was amazing!
I’ve always believed you get what you give, so give yourself a Chamber membership and get yourself involved in the benefits the Chamber offers to you and your business.
