Leadership Huntingdon County Graduation

On Thursday, June 16 we held the Leadership Huntingdon County Class of 2022 Graduation at Sunset Golf Club! We had a great evening celebrating this amazing class and all of their accomplishments. This class was a lot of fun and we enjoyed having each of them with us for the program.

They not only had a good time, but they also made a difference in our communities with their group projects! One group worked on the Out of School Youth program. They recruited businesses and youth to participate in the program. They did a lot of work to make this program great and because of them, Huntingdon County had the most out of school youth participating in the program out of the Southern Alleghenies regions. The other group created a week-long summer camp for kids in the Mount Union area. They had a very successful week and had several kids participate. They taught them a lot throughout the week about several different topics and the kids even went on a field trip!

We're extremely proud of this class and we're looking forward to seeing what they do next!

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.
