New SRVVB Member Benefit

Affiliate Partnership Opportunity

The Susquehanna River Valley Visitors Bureau and the Central PA Chamber of Commerce have recently agreed to promote an Affiliate Partnership Opportunity for SRVVB members.  This is how it works:  If you are a current member of the SRVVB and not a member of the Central PA Chamber of Commerce, you can join the Central PA Chamber of Commerce for one year at a discounted rate of $119.  This represents a $75 discount from the next membership category based upon 0-5 employees [CPCC member investment fees go up as the number of employees increase].  SRVVB members who join the CPCC will see a substantial savings for one year!  When ready to join the CPCC – or if you have any questions - contact Tea Jay Aikey at 570-742-7341. She’ll confirm your membership with the SRVVB and process your application at the discounted rate.

 

This is a great way for your business to gain additional exposure in the Susquehanna River Valley through a variety of programs and events the Central PA Chamber of Commerce offer.  For more information on the Central PA Chamber of Commerce, visit their web site at CentralPAChamber.com.   

 

For additional questions about your SRVVB member benefits, please contact Barbara Pick at 570-524-7234 or Barbara@VisitCentralPA.org.
