A Message from the 2016 Chairman of the Chamber Board of Directors
David Akers, President & CEO of LMS Solutions, Inc.
I am honored to be serving as the 2016-17 Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Perkiomen Valley Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber has a history of outstanding leadership in the community. I will strive to emulate the integrity, vision and leadership of our past Chairs.
Our Chamber serves our members through a large and active business network; by being their advocate in civic matters; and, by launching initiatives that promote business and enhance the quality of life in the Perkiomen Valley area. Our Chamber helps promote economic vitality by assisting individual businesses and civic organizations in growing their enterprises.
Since moving to the area more than a decade ago, I have come to understand how tight the business community is with one another and that Chamber membership is valuable to those who choose to engage. Chamber members have come to together to discuss important local topics that affect their businesses, and allow our Chamber team to advocate on their behalf.
I personally have found great success as a result of our chamber membership, but I believe that is due to the fact that we decided from the beginning to become involved. I know that you can also grow your business through your chamber membership, if you too get engaged; attend mixers, expos and any of the other incredible events held each year.
I look forward to working with our Chamber Board, our engaged Chamber members, and our incredible Chamber staff to continue to provide support to businesses that create jobs which pay wages that enable our neighbor families to attain an outstanding standard of living. I firmly believe that economic vitality and growth leads to individual opportunity which promotes a strong community.
I look forward to working with our Chamber Board of Directors, our civic leaders and all of our engaged Chamber members to continue to make the Perkiomen Valley area the best place to live, work and raise a family.
If you are a visitor to the community, or have recently moved to the area, I encourage you to patronize the businesses which have helped strengthen and serve our community in so many ways as members of the Perkiomen Valley Chamber of Commerce!
David Akers, 2016 Chairman of the Chamber Board of Directors
