UNITED JEWISH CAMPAIGN
|NEPA Jewish Federation Business & Trade Alliance and Website (Greater Wilkes-Barre Chapter)|
The motivation behind establishing a Greater Wilkes-Barre Alliance Chapter is to recognize that we are one “family” – that we have a responsibility to assist in promoting our collective business interests, directing interested parties to our business web sites, directing our products and services to the world market, facilitating our hiring processes, and sharing ideas with one another that will promote our business interests at the local, regional, national and international levels.
Expand Jewish Connections for Your Business! Social Media, Outreach, Networking, Business Referrals. Good for you! Good for our community!! Good for the future!!!
I am pleased to announce that Jewish businesses in Northeast Pennsylvania now have a forum to exchange information and increase their client base - all-the-while strengthening the unity of the Jewish communities of Luzerne,
An Alliance Chapter has already been established in Greater Scranton and
This enterprise has been undertaken as a service to you and your business, to insure the continuity of our Jewish communities here in
Once our Chapter is established, we expect the annual membership fee (after the first year) to be a mere $125 - a fee to be used exclusively to underwrite
Program sponsorships from our local businesses will be encouraged.
As business men and women, your accumulated knowledge and experience will be invaluable in deciding which programs would best promote Alliance objectives (that is, your business objectives), not just in Northeastern Pennsylvania, but throughout the country, Israel, and the world.
If our new Alliance Chapter can promote joint local, regional, national or international business ventures between our NEPA members and facilitate joint financing for such enterprises - all the better.
