I had the opportunity to interview the executive director and CEO of the Lower Bucks County Chamber of Commerce on Speak Your Piece, Friday. It seemed to be perfect timing, considering the pandemic and how it has affected everyone, including our business community.
We, in Lower Bucks County, have enjoyed a rather healthy economy and it will again, according to Minesh Pathak, who has headed the Lower Bucks Chamber for at least three years, and a member before that.
Pathak noted the majority of its local membership, 1,000 businesses in all, are open for business, although many have been hurt by the COVID pandemic. As always, the LBCCC remains a support system and an inspiration to its membership, hosting speakers, seminars and important networking from its center on Hood Boulevard in Fairless Hills. However, many of its programs, or events, are open to the public.
The leadership and support the organization provides is non-stop, Pathak says. While the Chamber is a resource for its members, the community benefits, the economy benefits, and our quality of life benefits. But community support for local business is essential – as important as the business-to-business support generated by the LBCCC.
So, kudos to Minesh Pathak and the Lower Bucks County Chamber of Commerce for effective leadership, effort and community spirit.
