Virtual Event

Broadband - AKA, continuous high-speed Internet -- is a critical component to our infrastructure network and necessary for any 21st century business to operate. But in some rural pockets of Pennsylvania, service can be spotty or nonexistent. The PA Chamber is committed to filling in these gaps and is excited to be hosting a FREE upcoming webinar to share what's being done to expand broadband access!

This information-packed program will also feature a panel discussion on the newly developed Pennsylvania Broadband Authority that is tasked with managing at least $100 million in federal funding to coordinate the statewide rollout of broadband internet. The panelists will include President of the Broadband Communications Association of Pennsylvania Todd Eachus; State Rep. Pam Snyder, who serves on the 11-member Broadband Authority and is a co-founder of the General Assembly's Broadband Caucus; and Darrin Youker of the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau.

Coordinating a statewide, broadband rollout effort can present its challenges, but also opportunities for growth while ensuring Pennsylvania is poised to compete with other states. Join them for this free webinar to learn how the public and private sector are working together to make that shared goal a reality!

America Works Initiative Survey

As a part of the America Works Initiative, the U.S. Chamber is launching a program specially focused on helping their Chamber Federation members tackle the workforce shortage issue in our states and communities. Therefore, to better quantify and understand the workforce challenges facing employers locally and across the nation, they are partnering with us to conduct a quick survey about labor force conditions. You will find a link to the survey here. The survey should take less than three minutes to complete. Please complete this survey by Monday, March 28th.

UC Fraud and UC-1099G Tax Forms


Victim of unemployment fraud?
Criminals using stolen identities filed claims for unemployment compensation in other people's names. Because unemployment compensation is taxable, state unemployment agencies submit Forms 1099-G to individuals in whose names and Social Security numbers the unemployment compensation was paid and to the IRS. Victims of fraud who receive Forms 1099-G with inaccurate amounts of unemployment compensation in Box 1 should notify the state agencies of the inaccuracies and request corrected Forms 1099-G. The Department of Labor details www.dol.gov/agencies/eta/UIIDtheft.

Taxpayers should only report income they actually received on their tax returns. Do not report income you did not receive. The IRS offers tax guidance to victims at https://www.irs.gov/identity-theft-fraud-scams/identity-theft-and-unemployment-benefits.

More Information
The Chamber's Membership & Marketing Committee is looking for some people to join the committee and help develop more ways we can support our members. If you would like to learn more about the committee, please contact me at ymartin@huntingdonchamber.com.
Did you know........

Small businesses represent the largest segment by number of most local chamber membership rolls. Results in the research study by The Shapiro Group, Inc. and Market Street indicate the impact of local chamber membership on small businesses is very powerful. If a consumer knows a small business is a member of its local chamber, the business enjoys a 44 percent increase in its consumer favorability rating, a 51 percent increase in consumer awareness, a 57 percent increase in its local reputation and a 63 percent increase in the likelihood that consumers will patronize the business in the future.

Research indicates that chamber membership stimulates business-to-business commerce in the local community. Other businesses in town are more likely to do business with you and your company if you are a member of the local chamber. Because a major part of a small business typically comes from business-to-business services, it is essential to maintain a positive standing within the local business community.
