As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Executive Committee of the TriCounty Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to not offer the Leadership Tri-County program for the 2020-2021 program year. Due to these circumstances, and as a direct result of this decision, the Executive Committee is eliminating the Director position for the program resulting in the unfortunate need to layoff Jennifer O’Donnell.

We look forward to relaunching the program and securing a full class to start the program in September of 2021 that will graduate in June of 2022.


Each participant will be equipped with the personal skills and understanding of the problems, opportunities and resources which exist within the communities of the tri-county area so they may be effective in assuming responsible and demanding roles in the solutions of a spectrum of challenges facing Southeastern Berks, Northern Chester and Western Montgomery Counties.
