Chairman's Message

Join Us in Growing Together – Your Chamber Needs You!

Dear Members:

As we reflect on the successes of the past year, it’s undeniable that our collective efforts have made a profound impact on the Perkiomen Valley Chamber of Commerce. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to each of you, from our Board Members and Executive Committee to our dedicated Ambassadors and volunteers. Your commitment and contributions have truly made our chamber a vibrant and thriving community for all its members.

I must also take a moment to express my deepest appreciation to our Executive Director, Renee Blomstrom, and our Executive Assistant Heather Watt, who together form the backbone of our Chamber team, ensuring its continued excellence.

Furthermore, I would like to extend a special thank you to our recent past Chairwoman, Susan Graham, and Chairman, Joe Bergquist, for their exemplary leadership. Under their guidance, our chamber has flourished, setting a high standard for us all.

As we look ahead, we remain steadfast in our commitment to fostering growth and opportunity in our region. The Perkiomen Valley Chamber of Commerce has a rich history of strategic planning aimed at promoting the prosperity of our members and the businesses they represent.

Now, more than ever, we recognize the importance of expanding our membership base. In 2024, we are launching a concerted effort to both reengage past members and attract new ones. Our goal is clear: to strengthen our community and enhance business opportunities for all.

I urge each of you to join us in this endeavor. Whether through renewing your membership, reaching out to businesses in our area, sponsoring events or simply spreading the word about the value of Chamber membership, your involvement is crucial to our success.

Imagine the possibilities if each of us were to recruit just one new member. Together, we could double in size, unlocking endless opportunities for networking, collaboration, and growth.

So, I implore you to consider this a personal call to action. Your Chamber needs you. Together, let’s seize the opportunity to make 2024 a year of unprecedented growth and prosperity.

Thank you for your ongoing support, dedication, and enthusiasm. I am truly honored to serve as your chairman, and I look forward to the great things we will accomplish together.

Warm regards,


Steven D. Earhart CFP, MSFS, CLU, ChFC, RICP

2024-2025 Chairman of the Chamber Board of Directors
