    The Pike County Chamber of Commerce welcomed new and returning board members at a virtual installment ceremony in January and quickly kicked off planning for events in 2023.

    Board President Jennifer Passenti opened the virtual ceremony held online due to inclement weather and James Baron, Esq. administered the oath of office to incoming members.

    Among the eleven board members for 2023 are leaders in education, government, real estate, workforce development, public utilities, small business and tourism.
