Many Butler County residents hear the name Butler County Chamber of Commerce but don't fully understand what the organization is all about. Most people probably know that it has something to do with businesses, but beyond that their knowledge about the actual workings of the organization is not extensive.

Community members can now enjoy the outdoors while checking e-mail, working on school projects or conducting online business. Diamond Park is located directly across from the Butler County Courthouse and is easily accessible to businesses, restaurants and retailers. For more information, visit ButlerDowntown.org.

November brings to mind a few thoughts -- fall and winter approach with the Holidays quickly upon us. My favorite has always been Thanksgiving -- not only because it involves food and friends -- but also because it is truly a season for giving thanks for all of the blessings that we have enjoyed during the past year. The Butler County Chamber of Commerce is thankful for many reasons -- the first and most important is for the thriving and active membership, which we currently enjoy. We remain the best investment any business can make for connecting to a large regional network. Butler County is our home and remains our focus, encouraging relationships and building bridges to the future. Our mission is and remains to support and strengthen the business, professional and industrial communities, encourage the development of new enterprises, and advocate for our membership.
Secondly, we need to be thankful for our longevity and our creativity, 120 years of service to the Butler County business community is nothing to take lightly. We continue to be the leader in business advocacy and promotion. This monthly newsletter is testimony to that fact with a myriad of news, views and events. 2016 saw the continuation of our highly successful recognition of area businesses and organizations. The Celebrate Business Annual Dinner recognized Lisa Guard of Specialized Staffing and Industry Recruiters, Inc. as the William A. Morgan, Jr. Entrepreneur of the Year and Slippery Rock University as Chamber Business Champion. The Maridon Museum was awarded Community Champion for efforts unique and results far reaching in our community. Our affiliates expand our scope of interest and influence into a wide variety of avenues. Our professional development programs, training sessions, legislative action activities, Keystone Energy Forum and People@Work symposium among others, have been second to none in the region. We continue to administer Leadership Butler County, Butler Downtown, Slippery Rock Business Association and the Butler County Young Professionals.
Thirdly, I am very thankful for my Executive Board of Officers and the Board of Directors. Elections will soon be upon us and I encourage any member interested in serving on the Board or on any of our committees to contact me directly and add their name to a rather impressive “bullpen” of interested businesses and professionals. Not only is involvement at an all-time high, but so are sponsorships, new ideas and activities. Constantly interested in adding “value added” benefits to our members, we have partnered with numerous businesses and educational organizations to offer member discounts on products as varied as energy and email marketing, to connecting and counseling women in business. We successfully continue our long standing Friday Morning Coffee Club in Butler at the Fairfield Inn & Suites. We continue our relationship with the Small Business Administration through S.C.O.R.E. and hold on site Small Business Development Center sessions as well.
The Butler County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Lisa Guard, Specialized Staffing and Industry Recruiters, has been selected as the William A. Morgan, Jr. Entrepreneur of the Year 2016. Lisa is determined in all she does to make Butler a thriving city, vibrant and active. Lisa and her husband Tim lived in Butler County for over 20 years, and the business is currently located in the building she purchased and renovated on Main Street in 2002. The Entrepreneur of the Year Award is presented to an outstanding local business owner and is recommended by the Chamber’s Past President’s Advisory Council along with past award recipients Nadine Tripodi, John Giles, Joe Gray, Bob McCafferty, Tom Graham, David Lloyd, Richard Musko, William McCarrier and N. Lee Ligo.
Each year, the Butler County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and Past Presidents/Board Chairs, selects a business in Butler County to receive the Award of “Business Champion” which is presented at our annual dinner. Selection is based on: Unique Initiatives, Investment in Butler County, Innovative Approaches, People Philosophy/Employee Commitment, Recognition/Awards and Future Plans. This year, we have selected Slippery Rock University (SRU) as the 2016 Butler County Chamber of Commerce “Business Champion”. Ongoing unique initiatives have been numerous including the Regional Learning Alliance as well as new academic programs to keep pace with a changing world such as homeland security and natural gas engineering. With the motto “We believe. So we achieve” as their guiding mantra, SRU encourages staff and faculty to become involved in the community.
