Mixer event is an opportunity for memberships of all three groups to learn about business potential in each other’s regions.
Newly appointed Greater Lehigh Valley Realtors (GLVR) CEO, and Carbon County native, Justin Porembo will be introduced to the memberships of the Carbon Chamber & Economic Development Corporation, Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce, and Greater Lehigh Valley REALTORS® at a mixer event hosted by all three organizations on Thursday, October 29 from 5-7 p.m. at the Slopeside Pub & Grill in Palmerton, PA.
At the very end of 2014, the Carbon County and Lehigh Valley Associations of Realtors® joined forces to become the Greater Lehigh Valley REALTORS® and create the third largest Multiple Listing Service in Pennsylvania. Since the mutually beneficial merger, GLVR has been seeking ways, such as this month’s mixer, to further strengthen ties between the communities of the two counties and encourage additional business relationships to flourish.
“Carbon County and Lehigh Valley Associations of Realtors® joining together to form the Greater Lehigh Valley REALTORS® has yielded so many benefits for real estate professionals, buyers and sellers in both our communities,” explains GLVR President Chris Raad. “We said to ourselves, ‘Why not introduce other businesses to this amazing synergy and see what other wonderful partnerships might develop?’”
Marlyn Kissner, Executive Vice President, Northern Region, of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce – Carbon Chamber & Economic Development Corporation shares in Raad’s enthusiasm for the fledgling partnership and the networking opportunities it can offer.
“We believe in the power of partnerships on every level and look forward to supporting the Greater Lehigh Valley Realtors,” states Kissner. “We are very excited to be a part of this great event. It will be a fun night at Blue Mountain Resort and a wonderful opportunity to network with like-minded business professionals”
The event is open only to members of the Carbon Chamber & Economic Development Corporation, Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce, and Greater Lehigh Valley REALTORS®. The Carbon Chamber & Economic Development asks that its members pre-register for the event in advance by calling 610-379-5000.
