Volunteers abound in The Hershey Partnership, and they all accomplish great things! Getting involved in a committee is a great way to enhance your membership value. Please contact the Chair for the Committee that interests you.
Professional Development Committee: This committee presents educational and professional development opportunities for our members through guest speakers and other presentations.
Destination Committee, Chair Dave Stillwagon: The goal of this committee is to continue to keep visitors informed on all the Greater Hershey Area has to offer. We publish 350,000 copies of the Hershey PA Chocolate and More Map which is sent out to PA Welcome Centers as well as to hotels, motels, campgrounds, other businesses in the Central PA area, and our own Hershey Information Center. Only Hershey Partnership members can participate in this great opportunity.
Local Link Committee, Chair Bob McRedmond: The goal of this committee is to promote increased community awareness and utilization of local businesses. Local Links strives to link member businesses with the local community and each other through key annual events such as the Spring Golf Outing and the Fall Hershey Soup Cook-Off. This committee also participates in the Hershey’s New Years Eve Celebration.
Networking Committee, Chair Carol Shue: This committee schedules monthly breakfast meetings and other networking events hosted by various members.
Membership Committee, Chair Mike McCormick: This committee works to identify businesses in the Hershey area and assigns committee members to reach out to them to join our organization. They also meet regularly to brainstorm for ideas on how to grow our membership. The Membership Committee is also instrumental in handling renewals and member retention and continues to act as a resource for all members who have questions or concerns.
Marketing Committee: This committee develops and sustains an intentional, coordinated and consistent plan to promote The Hershey Partnership brand, community involvement, and business value associated with our organization.
