York County Economic Alliance

Did you hear? This year the York County Chamber of Commerce and the York County Economic Development Corporation joined forces and formed the new York County Economic Alliance. This means that the support and services that York area businesses and community received from the Chamber of Commerce has gotten even better. The marriage of these two entities means a stronger voice for business and community efforts of all shapes and sizes.

The new Economic Alliance has great resources for new and existing businesses. They provide young professional networking events, business advocacy, York County relocation services, healthcare services and other community focused events and business expos.
