“FirstBank has been a member of the Erie Chamber of Commerce since its inception. The Chamber has provided an organic opportunity for our team to engage with the business community in Erie and surrounding via the various networking events throughout the year. The Chamber has also provided several opportunities for us to connect with the residents of Erie and surrounding communities via the major events which it puts on through the year such as Town Fair, Brewfest and others. The relationships we have created through these events have had a material impact on our business over the years, so much so that we were involved in the Board of Directors for the last several years and also chose to become a Major Investor. The visibility and branding value we get from our investment in the Chamber is significant, and we believe has a large impact in a community of this size.”
"After a few years participating in Chamber Events, I recently joined this amazing group. Instantly, they made me feel welcome with a Ribbon Cutting event, helping me gain greater exposure into the Erie and surrounding area.
They truly make me feel like part of the team, not just a member, introducing me to other vendors building a greater sense of community.
I believe my business is stronger for being a member and would highly recommend getting involved."
“The reason Zach and I decided to open our business and choose Erie was solely because of the warmness and enthusiasm of the Erie chamber of commerce. We were taken out to lunch when we first visited, we were introduced to many other small town businesses, and put in contact with everyone we needed to open our doors. We’re two years in and the chamber is no doubt paramount in our town. They put on fantastic events that the town truly loves and they never forget about Old town- where the heart of Erie is. Genuinely, we would not be here was it not for the Chamber.”

"The Erie chamber has been a great resource for my business Poopanators pet care services to establish within our community. Being involved with planning events on the ambassadors team and working at the events alongside other local business owners has helped us connect and develop great relationships within. We've grown our business in the past year by 30 percent from all of the connections we've made within the chamber attending after hour events, coffee connections and local community events not only with fellow local business owners but also many of the local residents attending the events for the community hosted by the chamber. I highly recommend if you would like to meet new people and learn about all the exciting new things going on and the growth within our community the Erie chamber is where it's at."

"The Erie Chamber of Commerce is a great support for all Erie businesses, organizations and the community! Members are great resources and support for one another. I appreciate how members want to give back to the community and support so many of the non-profit organizations."
