Women’s Network Luncheon with Mayor Paige Cognetti

We recently held a Women’s Network Luncheon at Glenmaura National Golf Club, the first in-person event the Chamber held since March due to COVID-19. The event was sponsored by Fidelity Bank.

Paige Cognetti, Mayor of Scranton, was the keynote speaker. She discussed what the city is doing
to improve the quality of life for businesses and residents – considering the recent COVID-19
challenges – as well as her career/life balance as a new mom in the work-from-home era.

“The Chamber was thrilled to kick-off hosting in-person events again,” said Mari Potis, Chamber
director of membership and events. “All attendees thoroughly enjoyed themselves in a safe and respectful manner, and we look forward to bringing more live networking events to our members.”

The Chamber introduced its “COVID comfort band” system at theluncheon. Guests were asked to wear a wristband associated with their level of social comfort. To ensure the staff and guests safety, all live Chamber events will use the comfort bands for the foreseeable future.
