Our members are the driving force behind the Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce community. With a dynamic variety of programming, services, and activities, we strive to support our members in furthering their business goals.
The Industrial Development arm of The Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce, consisting of The Scranton Lackawanna Industrial Building Company (SLIBCO), The Scranton Plan and the Lackawanna Industrial Fund Enterprise (LIFE), has spearheaded the development of 15 business parks, development of 22 million square feet, creating more than 42,000 jobs and a community investment of more than $2 billion to Northeastern Pennsylvania.
Through its wide range of regional partnerships, our workforce development team works to develop strategies that address economic and workforce opportunities. Across our workforce development initiatives, the Chamber ensures that our area’s workforce meets the current and future needs of the region’s existing and targeted industries.
The Chamber is dedicated to community leadership and professional development through its Leadership Lackawanna affiliate. Its four programs - teen, core, executive leadership and Welcome Scranton! -- enhance the skills, connections and knowledge of emerging and established leaders, enabling them to better serve in our communities, workplaces and organizations.
The Chamber’s business incubator program serves as a gateway to resources for entrepreneurs looking to start or expand their business in Lackawanna County. The Chamber’s business incubator program fosters job creation and stimulates business growth in line with clients’ business plans.
The Chamber’s Government Affairs committee works closely with local, regional, state, and federal officials to offer support and advocate on behalf of its members. The Chamber puts the needs of the business community at the forefront of its advocacy efforts by helping to ensure a positive governmental climate for business growth and development.
