Chairman's Message

A Message from the 2019 Chairman of the Chamber Board of Directors, Kip Bilo

I am truly honored to be serving as the 2019 Chairman of the Board of Directors’. I am hopeful to make great contributions this year, keeping with the history of the outstanding leadership throughout the Chamber’s existence. I will strive to emulate the integrity, vision and leadership that has been demonstrated by our recent past Chairs, Cheryl Kreider and Dave Akers, and many others before them.


This is a banner year for the Chamber with the relocation of our Headquarters to this space on Main Street – in Trappe. To be a part of this move, and also serve on the Board of Directors is a great personal highlight in my life. This move elevates the Chamber to a new level of prominence within the community in which it serves. We are very happy to make the move and stay on Main Street in the heart of our business community.


Having lived in this area for the past 30 years, and as a member of the Chamber since 2011, I have seen tremendous growth, both in the residential and business sectors. Chamber membership is a valuable resource for those who choose to engage.


I will encourage ALL of our members to be ACTIVE members, highlighting your business and reaping the benefits afforded to you through your membership. Your success is our success! Together, we will make the difference our community deserves!

I look forward to working with our Chamber Board of Directors, our Membership, and our Civic Leaders to continue to make the Perkiomen Valley area the best place to live, work and raise a family.


Thank you.

Kip Bilo, 2019 Chairman of the Chamber Board of Directors
