As a transplant to the North Huntingdon area, I never had any interaction with the Norwin Chamber of Commerce until I became the manager at the Jacktown Ride & Hunt Club. While there, I had the pleasure of dealing very closely with many of the officers and members of the Norwin Chamber. Within the past 6 months, I have assumed the position of General Manager at the recently opened Firepit Wood Fired Grill. The Norwin Chamber of Commerce has been outstanding in their support and assistance with our opening. From the official Ribbon-cutting ceremony, to the referral program, to the constant visits and patronage from the fellow members, The Norwin Chamber of Commerce has been a huge asset to me and my business growth and development.

I joined the Norwin Chamber last year and have met a lot of great people. I also have received many referrals from other Norwin Chamber members. I feel its the chamber to be a member of because of its awesome leadership team. I also refer as much business as possible to our members and their businesses. I do all of my shopping and entertainment here as well as to support our community. Thank you Norwin Chamber for everything you do.
Chuck Christner - Levin Furniture Greensburg
From our ribbon cutting ceremony to our block party mixer, we have received so much exposure to the Norwin business community and have been able to develop new business relationships. I believe the reason we have had such a positive experience is that we did not just become members, but engaged and involved members. I try to make sure someone from my staff attends every networking event and that our firm's name is always "out there". The Chamber staff has been an excellent referral source of business services that allows us to utilize other businesses in our community. We look forward to our continued membership with the Chamber and all the benefits it has to offer.

I would like to extend my gratitude and thanks for the support that you have provided for our new venture in Irwin. Our family has been in the food service business for over 70 years with many different locations. Since opening the event center two years ago and becoming Norwin Chamber members the benefits by far have exceeded the investment. We could have never made the connections and set up the networking capabilities so quickly without all of your help. I would highly recommend to any new or existing business to join the Norwin Chamber and we look forward to future growth and working with the chamber for many years to come.
Greg Antonelli - Antonelli Event Center and Woody's Res
You will not find a more organized and dedicated establishment to help your business grow. Since day one of our opening the chamber has helped us along the way. In promoting upcoming events, helping us find qualified personnel, and always visiting our establishment asking what else they can do. They are a great bunch of people who honestly care about helping your company succeed. It's an honor to call ourselves members.
Steve & Jen Salvi - Cenacolo Restaurant
The Norwin Chamber has been an essential tool in helping me launch my small business. The staff genuinely care about helping your business succeed. There is no better way to learn about networking r what the chamber has to offer than to attend the Networking Orientation. Newcomers and even veteran networkers will come away with valuable information that they can implement immediately to grow their business. The members are very friendly and welcoming to new faces. With so many great events, terrific support and promotional opportunities, joining the Norwin Chamber of Commerce should be close to the top of any business' priority list. My membership has paid for itself in too many ways to count.
Nevin Harris - Neighborhood Values
Being a part of the Norwin Chamber is a no-brainer! We have had a tremendous outpouring of support at not one, but two, of our ribbon cuttings. At each event we arrive feeling extremely welcome and have a great time. Our entire staff loves to attend the events. The chamber directory is such a wonderful tool and we always know we're dealing with honest people. The Chamber has also been useful for growing our own customer base. We will continue to maintain our membership in the Norwin Chamber for years to come.

A community is only able to thrive as long as there are partnerships. The Norwin Chamber of Commerce creates an environment where businesses and community support and interact with each other on a continual basis. Because of jobs that I have held in the past, I have worked with several Chambers in other areas around Pittsburgh. Norwin's Chamber is by far the most engaging and effective Chamber I have had the pleasure of working with. Transitions Healthcare North Huntingdon (formerly Baldock Health Care Center) is actively involved in the Irwin/North Huntingdon community and I attribute much of our success to our Chamber relationships. I am proud to be an active member of the Chamber. I have made friends and business contacts that I greatly value. I would recommend Chamber membership to anyone looking for endless opportunities to impact their business and community.

I recently had head shots taken by Jeff at Infinite Pose-abilities. The whole process was very simple, from scheduling online to the picture taking, to receiving the proofs through Dropbox. I hate getting my picture taken, but Jeff made it easy, even cracking some jokes to get me to smile. On my website and social media profiles, I had been using a picture I found out of an old photo album. Now I have a nice professional picture that looks great! Being a new business owner, every penny I can save counts and I never would have been able to afford a professional head shot if not for the special discounted price they had that was only available for members of the Norwin Chamber.
Tom Graney - Graney & Company, CPA
I have been involved in the Norwin Chamber for over eight years representing Elliott Company. Through the many chamber activities, I have been able to meet and network with local businessmen and businesswomen. Chamber mixers showcase a local business and give members a chance to meet the owners and visit their establishment. I have broadened my network of business acquaintances through participation in the Norwin Chamber and have met many wonderful people in the community.
John Russo of Elliott Company
Energy Swing Windows membership with the Norwin Chamber as been nothing but a positive experience! It gives our company the chance to interact with other business professionals to exchange ideas about growing a business. It is refreshing to see how all members take a genuine interest in each other and are eager to help each other succeed. The chamber creates a business circle that thrives on members caring for and supporting each other. We have made many friendships and professional contacts because of our membership that would not have happened without the chamber. Business people small and large gathering together to help each other succeed always leads to something beneficial for everyone involved. Energy Swing Windows is a stronger business because of our membership with the Norwin Chamber.
Ed Filipowski from Energy Swing Windows
The Norwin Chamber has been a welcoming and supportive organization since the time we first joined. The networking events are great ways to educate others about what we do and why. In addition, it has been helpful to learn about other businesses in the community. It is sometimes like a "domino" effect - one business helps another business who in turn pays it forward. Just making personal connections and developing professional working relationships with others can benefit our whole community. The orientation session provided helpful marketing tips and ways to observe good business protocol when working with others. The seminars and workshops provide great continuing education and best of all, the events are fun to be part of! Please consider joining us!

As a primary care health provider in the community, we are aware of the importance of giving back to our community. Through the Norwin Chamber of Commerce, we have the opportunity to work with other professionals who provide services within our area. Keeping this network of professionals is rewarding and good for our local area. I have met wonderful people in the chamber and look forward to working with them in the future.
Pat Miller - Allegheny Family Medicine East
I would recommend joining the Norwin Chamber to anyone looking to expand and spread their name around the Neighborhood. By attending a variety of events, you meet & get to know many other business people that you would not have met otherwise. Our magazine has increased business and personally I have enjoyed the many meetings, seminars & events hosted by this organization and hope to in the coming years
Cheryl Martin - Neighborhood Values
The first group that I joined as a new business owner in the East was the Norwin Chamber of Commerce. Truly, I was so naive that I didn't even know what a Chamber of Commerce did! It has been an amazing journey for me. From the very first meeting I felt so welcome. All members present that day personally came up to introduce themselves, knowing that I was a new guest. The Norwin Chamber has helped my business to grow by spreading the word about our excellent care of the elderly in their homes. The lunches and meetings are a great way to advertise my business. I feel blessed to be a member of this great group of business owners.
Mame Donohue - Comfort Keepers
We love the Norwin Chamber
That is truly true.
We share library events with them
And they share them with all of you!
So the community gets the benefit
Of knowing what we do.
And that we are more than just free books for all...
Like the Chamber, we are a community resource, too!
Barb Flynn, Norwin Public Library

When I think of my 5 years as a member of the Norwin Chamber, I can't believe how quickly the time goes. The Chamber has given me the opportunity to become involved with all levels of businesses and enhanced my ability to adapt to many situations. From attending luncheons to Mixers, the Chamber is affordable and valuable at all levels.
Brenda Kacvinsky - Norwin Rotary Club
I joined the Norwin Chamber about 3 years ago because I wanted to grow my business in the North Huntingdon community. I have established many valuable relationships that have led to the growth of my business over the last few years. I have also learned a lot from other more experienced business owners on how to properly run a business. The Norwin Chamber of Commerce is really like one big family. Everyone takes care of each other and helps to promote each others businesses. I highly recommend joining the Norwin Chamber of Commerce to help establish your business in the Westmoreland County area. I joined about 3 years ago and now consider myself to be the face of Aflac in my community.
Mike Fleming - Aflac
The Norwin Chamber is a wonderful and caring group of members who truly support each other professionals as well as personally. Through my membership I have had the opportunity to develop many contacts that have proven to be great sources of referrals, information, education and centers of influence for my business.

I absolutely love being a member of the Norwin Chamber of Commerce. The people in Irwin, North Irwin and North Huntingdon are honest and hard working, and it is a pleasure to have gotten to know them better through the networking activities of the Chamber.

Since I have been a member of the Norwin Chamber of Commerce, I have met so many interesting and helpful business people. Not only have they patronized my business, but many have been able to provide me with quality service to meet my needs. Some days my clientel is 75% Norwin Chamber members, therefore I myself am appreciative for their business and honored to be a Norwin Chamber member.
