Dear Members of the Pitman Business Community –

Happy New Year! 2018 was a fantastic year for the Greater Pitman Chamber of Commerce and we are excited to share our plans with you for 2019. In 2018, the GPCC had many successful firsts including:

  • Eliminating a membership fee for any business or organization within Pitman to allow all Pitman entities to take advantage of GPCC benefits and to create a cohesive and unified business community;
  • Working with Pitman Borough Council to change a local ordinance to allow alcohol on public property resulting in Pitman’s first beer garden on Theatre Avenue;
  • Implementing the Pitman Bucks Program, Pitman’s own currency to be used only at Pitman Businesses and on Pitman services, which resulted in an infusion of $10,500 into the local economy;
  • Installing commercial grade string lights on Theatre Avenue to beautify the Uptown;
  • Sponsoring over thirty (30) events, including the Summer Swelter Craft Beer Fest, which brought customers into Pitman and contributed to the continuation of positive publicity of Pitman;
  • Instituting a sponsorship program which offered additional benefits for businesses and organizations;
  • Sponsoring GPCC networking events to allow businesses and organizations to meet in a less formal setting & share ideas;
  • Expanding the social media, web and app presence of the Pitman Business Community.

In 2019, we will continue these positive trends and have some new ideas to implement as well. New plans for 2019 include:

  • Subsidizing the Pitman Bucks Program twice a year, which will result in an infusion of $21,500 into the local economy;
  • Offering Social Media Grants for GPCC Members to assist them in marketing and developing their online presence;
  • Administering a private Facebook Group to better connect with GPCC Members and will also Livestream GPCC monthly meetings for those members who are unable to attend in-person;
  • Continuing to expand, improve and add to our current list of special events including year-round 4th Friday Events, the Sweetest Night in Pitman, and a Magical Movie Night.

We look forward to working with the Pitman business community in 2019 and hope to see you at our next regularly scheduled meeting. We meet on the third Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. at the Pitman Gallery & Art Center.
Sincerely,

Vanessa E. James, Esquire
President
