Executive Management Series


The Executive Management Series is scheduled biannually in the spring and fall to address a variety of pressing issues of importance to the community’s business leaders. Some of the topics addressed since the series’ premier in 1999 have included recruitment and retention challenges, e-commerce issues, marketing trends and leadership in difficult times. The events also introduce participants to Penn State resources. This enables them to further address problems their organizations may be experiencing related to the topics of discussion in the series.

If there is a topic you are interested in learning about that would serve your business needs, please email us at wbce@outreach.psu.edu. Your input is very valuable to us and your ideas are welcome.

The fall 2014 Executive Management forum, Healthy Workforce... Healthy Community!, was held on Friday, October 31, 2014. At this event, two traditionally separate events were combined — a Penn State Executive Management Forum and the Chambers’ Healthy Workplace Awards Luncheon. The keynote speaker, Chamber President Wico van Genderen, discussed plans for the Chamber and our community.

Check back in the early spring for the next Executive Management Series announcement.
