What is the Lancaster Chamber's Roundtable Program?
Roundtable programs foster meaningful peer-to-peer connection and discussion in an invigorating and confidential environment. The Energy, Environment, Healthy, & Safety Roundtable supports conversations on energy, environmental, health, and safety policies and protocols for businesses across Lancaster County to enhance business outcomes and workforce safety.
Roundtables are designed to encourage participants to exchange insight, offer feedback, and express challenges they’re facing in their position or organization while cultivating a valuable network. Sessions may include expert presenters/panels, small group discussion, best practice sharing, educational components, and/or Q&A sessions regarding relevant issues. Roundtable content and discussions are guided by a select group of Co-Chairs in partnership with a Lancaster Chamber staff member.
