Visiting the Lehigh Valley?
Made Possible in Lehigh Valley is a regional branding and marketing initiative aimed at showing off all the amazing things that are possible here in Lehigh Valley, so that we may grow the region’s image as a desirable place to visit, work, learn, and live.
The initiative is championed by Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corporation, Discover Lehigh Valley, the Lehigh Valley Chamber, and the Greater Lehigh Valley Realtors. The region exists today because of where it has been. Together, we will shape what is made possible tomorrow.
The Chamber’s mission is to improve the economy and quality of life in the Lehigh Valley. Our mission unites us with businesspeople and communities across the Lehigh Valley as we purposefully connect businesses, enhance the vitality of our communities, and promote the benefits of diversity in the workplace. Serving more than 5,000 businesses and members with more than 280,000 employees, The Chamber is the largest in Pennsylvania and New Jersey and in the top six nationwide. Our thirty-plus affiliated chambers, councils and committees are On Every Main Street with more than 1,500 community-focused volunteers who actively contribute at the grass roots to develop and achieve their respective and collective goals.
