You cant build a reputation on what you are going to do. Henry Ford

ow more than ever since I started my Chamber career in 1987, is your investment in our organization as valuable. In tough economic times as well as in booming economic times, each business and organization in our area has to assure himself or herself that they maintain a connection to the local, regional and national communities. Our chamber, founded in 1896, has proven that we do not build our success on what we promise to accomplish, but upon our solid history of service to the Butler County Business Community - Our Membership. The high number of business activities, flyers and member news is proof that our Leading Edge remains Cutting Edge in the world of Chamber publications and in many respects in the world of regional business publications. Something for everyoneDiversification of eventsBusiness EducationNetworking Friday Morning Coffee ClubCooperative PartnershipsAffiliations with Butler Human Resources Association, Leadership Butler County, Slippery Rock Business Association, Butler Downtown and Butler County Young Professionalspast successes as well as current services and planning for the future. Our reputation is solid and proven. I am so proud of what we have achieved already this year, and excited at the prospect of our future plans. The trio of Marcellus Shale Seminars was a sell out, giving each unique audience timely and targeted information. Sandler Business Training offers blue ribbon sales training to our membership in an affordable and professional environment. We want to be the information conduit for our membership to get to know our County Commissioner Candidates. While our Officers, Directors and Members continue to conduct, assist, sponsor and attend events, they are sometimes too busy to realize just how much of a success our Chamber is. More importantly we need to be proud of the impact we are making on our community and our region and how valuable Chamber membership is. Very few organizations (non or for profit) are able to conduct such a wide array of social, educational, informational, legislative and cooperative business and community events and do them so well. Not only are we event and seminar packed, but also our image through our website and publications is consistently traditional as well as modern and up to date, a reflection of our past and current success. A large number of our services are offered at no charge to our members due to the numerous sponsors who have stepped forward, providing a wide variety of opportunities for promotion and networking. Once again, you are the facilitators of these efforts, both through your financial support and your involvement. We have strengthened our affiliation with the Community Development Corporation of Butler County and the Butler County Tourism and Convention Bureau as our collective scope of interest and influence grows. Meet-N-Move luncheons with the Allegheny Valley, Zelienople Harmony Area, THE CHAMBER, Inc. and Armstrong County Chambers have broadened our members marketing territories. Joint events with the Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce and Young Professionals, Mercer County, Clarion, Franklin and Venango Area Chambers of Commerce provide additional avenues whereby our members can become exposed to a new audience of customers and hopefully suppliers. We tweak and repeat proven events and services and never cease to experiment. By supporting us, you reassure the citizens of Butler County that the business community is not only thriving, but also concerned with our areas future and how we can continue to shape it. If you live, work or play in Butler County, we are convinced that our reputation is reflective of our past and current success which in turn gives credibility to our future successes. You cant build a reputation on what you are going to do. The Butler County Chamber of Commerce is definitely one organization that will not ask you to take a chance on what we might do, but encourage you to become involved in what has been a long and important history of what we have done. I invite you to get busy with us -- if you arent already. Your ideas are the foundation of our traditions, and we welcome and encourage all of our members to participate in our success. Your investment in our Chamber is most definitely an investment in the future of our business community. Our reputation is solid, built upon a stellar reputation of what we have done, what we currently do and what we will collectively continue to do.

Butler Health System and The Ellwood City Hospital Sign Management Agreement - Crystal Ball overwhelming success.
he Boards of Trustees of the Ellwood City Hospital (ECH) and Butler Health System (BHS) announced that they have entered into a 5-year Management and Collaborative Initiatives Agreement. Under the agreement, Ray Beck, ECH President & CEO, will become a member of the BHS executive team. Mr. Beck will continue to have primary responsibility for The Ellwood City Hospital. ECH will maintain its Board of Trustees and governance structure. Ken DeFurio, BHS President & CEO, said, The Board of Trustees at ECH decided that it wanted a strategic partner. ECH faces the same uncertain and difficult future that challenges Butler Memorial Hospital and all U.S. hospitals. After a period of due diligence, our organizations decided that there is an excellent cultural fit, and both organizations are committed to working together to improve upon existing foundations of high quality and solid financial performance. This is proof that in these turbulent times it is possible for independent community providers to come together, work collaboratively, and do it with mutual respect all for the betterment of the communities they serve. The Butler County Chamber of Commerce congratulates both organizations for their insight and spirit of cooperation. In other Hospital News, Butler Health System Foundations annual Crystal Ball was held Saturday March 17 at the

Pittsburgh Marriott North in Cranberry Twp. The capacity crowd of guests enjoyed a St. Patricks Day celebration and raised nearly $120,000. This years proceeds are being directed to fund vehicles and staffing to create access to healthcare services for those in our community who have little or no transportation. BHS Foundation staff, along with a group of committee volunteers plans the event. Vicki Hinterberger of the Butler Media Group was this years Committee Chair. The Women of Legacy Award was presented to Sue Bennitt of Butler Township. Sue has contributed to many segments of the civic community and has served on the boards of directors for several organizations. She is currently serving as chair of the BC3 Foundation. She was a founder of the Butler County Day Care Center, now known as Butler County Childrens Center, and served as president of its board of directors. She was honored with the Butler County Chamber of Commerce Junior Distinguished Service Award in 1978. The Women of Legacy Award honors those who have notably contributed to the health and well-being of the Butler county community through excellence in patient care, overcoming personal illness or crisis, or improving some aspect of our communitys health.

Marcellus Shale Summit II & Expo Coming to Butler County

oin the Butler Media Group for a free informational and educational discussion of Marcellus Shale Drilling and its impact on Butler County on Thursday, April 19, 2012, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Butler Days Inn Conference Center. The second installment of the Marcellus Shale Summit will provide Butler County citizens with a free, daylong event of education aimed to inform and connect them to Marcellus Shale. The Summit will specifically feature several authorities on the Marcellus Gas Shale play, including Professor of Geosciences at Penn State University Dr. Terry Engelder, Host of the American Entrepreneur Radio Show Marcellus: The Economic Miracle Ron Morris, The Lt. Governors Office, The Department of Environmental Protection, and other leading authorities and organizations. Numerous vendors will also be available to view throughout the day, as well as various panel discussions. As we progressively enter into the Marcellus play, the Butler Media Group realizes its our responsibility to keep our community informed, said Kathy Gregory-Steiner, General Sales Manager. It is our pleasure to again partner with XTO Energy and bring you the very latest information and updates concerning the Marcellus Region. In early 2008, Terry Engelder and Gary Lash, a geology professor at the State University of New York at Fredonia, surprised everyone with estimates that the Marcellus might contain more than 500 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. That volume of natural gas would be enough to supply the entire United States for about two years, and carry a value of about one trillion dollars. The presence of this enormous volume of potentially recoverable gas in the eastern United States has a great economic significance, for everyone. However, the mining practices used have not come without controversy, as environmentalists lament the toll taken on the earth as well as the industrialization of previously zoned agriculture and forestlands. Whether you are a Butler citizen, landowner, business or part of our local government, education is key to understanding the unique opportunities and challenges arising from Marcellus Shale. The potential for economic impact upon every business in our region is incalculable and will open doors for new ventures and opportunities. More details of the Summit and Expo, including information on how to participate as a vendor, are available at
