We Achieve Together

The Chamber is creating momentum for the future by creating a culture of excellence, facilitating partnerships and leading on issues that elevate economic development and ensure long-term smart growth and sustainability.

As the voice of business and leading economic-development organization in Centre County, the Chamber collaborates with many organizations throughout Centre County and works closely with other chambers and economic-development organizations throughout the region to positively impact our economy and enhance the quality of life of everyone in central Pennsylvania.

And through collaborative initiatives such as CentreREADY™, SuccessWithHonor, HappyValleyAgventures and DRIVEForward, the Chamber is addressing issues critical to business growth and competitiveness, including workforce preparedness, agritourism, NIL initiatives with Penn State student athletes, and transportation infrastructure.
