The Juniata River Valley Chamber of Commerce has been at work in the Juniata River Valley for over 100 years, supporting the local businesses, industries and organizations who call this area home. There are many spokes in the wheel that keeps the Chamber moving forward, but the most important spokes, by far, are the members. The membership has consistently grown to the present number of over 500 members. Though many things have changed over the decades one constant has been the importance and anticipation of the Chamber of Commerce Annual Meeting. This much prioritized event serves as an educational, informational and entertaining climax to each year’s programs and activities. It is generally held in April.
The Chamber seeks out guest speakers who bring cutting-edge economic information and business related stories to the membership, often announcing exciting projects or changes in their industry. Election of officers and new board members follow the nominating committee report, and the Executive Director reviews the year’s activities and shines a spotlight on future endeavors.
