What is the Excellence Exchange Symposium?
The Lancaster Chamber’s Excellence Exchange is a professional development and networking opportunity for leaders -- a place for local and regional business professionals to hear noteworthy business practices and participate in small group discussions, facilitating conversation among attendees on how to implement the lessons learned from the speaker(s) within their workplaces. The Excellence Exchange Symposium serves to amplify that purpose with a keynote from an elevated regional or national leader.
