Reach your goals faster, expand your network, and get your brand in front of more people with membership in the Chamber of Business & Industry of Centre County (CBICC)! The CBICC is where business is done in Centre County - our chamber of commerce is home to nearly 1,000 members across all sectors of business, educational institutions, non-profit organizations, and governmental entities.
The CBICC offers a variety of event formats that are informative and educational, while also allowing space for networking and publicity for your business. Throughout the year, breakfast, luncheons, and after hours events are held for members to attend at a discounted rate. Special promotional opportunities also occur within each event format.
Businesses that are a member of the CBICC also receive publicity as part of their membership benefits. All CBICC members in good standing appear in the annual edition of the printed CBICC Membership Directory, as well as on the online edition. Expanded directory listing ads are also available within this publication. Members' news can be shared with other members and the community through social media, periodically on CBICC e-blasts, and in the CBICC Centre Connection printed newsletter. Expanded advertising options are available in the Centre Connection and in the annually printed CBICC Guide to Centre County. CBICC members may also purchase mailing labels to direct mail their fellow members.
Beyond the events and publicity, the CBICC staff, board members, and select committees are hard at work on county and regional initiatives. A few of these include:
- Transportation - DRIVEforward
- Agtourism - Happy Valley Agventures
- Workforce - CentreREADY
- Government - ABC Essentials
