With a broad and far reaching membership, we help the Erie Community get things done!
Years of Serving Erie
We’re a jack-of-all-trades team — marketers, politicos, event managers, urban planners, pastors — who do jack-of-all-trades things — facilitator, connector, leader, collaborator, supporter, champion. And we’re respectively cross-trained in all of our core functions, giving the business community a seamless experience. We’re also deeply committed to our own professional development and growth, leading to a team with stellar judgment that’s empowered to execute the work. We’re willing to fail and learn from our failures if it means better results for Erie in the long run.
Our team values the incredible opportunity we have every day to bring amazing, transformational change to our hometown region. We work hard every day to see prosperity flourish for all who call Erie home. And we immerse ourselves in the community as volunteers, parent-coaches, mentors, board members, activists, and more. And we cherish the moments we have to enjoy the quality of life we champion to attract others to Erie!

The PA Chamber of Business and Industry is lucky to have a partner like the Erie Regional Chamber and Growth Partnership. Their team works with our team to ensure that their members are informed and able to articulate important issues to their state officials. This partnership ensures that Erie’s voice in Harrisburg is strong and effective.
Senior Member Executive
The Erie Regional Chamber and Growth Partnership has been very helpful to my business as we contract with the Pennsylvania Department of Education, PennDOT, and the federal government. As small businesses, we many times do not have access to politicians and are not heard individually; the chamber has embraced their role interacting in representing all businesses in Erie County to elected officials and I am happy to know they are continuing their work with all levels of governmental bodies for the well-being of all businesses in Erie County.”
