What is the Excellence Exchange?  

The Lancaster Chamber’s Excellence Exchange is a professional development and networking opportunity for leaders -- a place for local and regional business professionals to share noteworthy business practices and participate in small group discussions, facilitating conversation among high-level attendees on how to implement lessons learned within their workplaces. 

Here’s what to expect! 

Over the course of the past year and a half, the Lancaster County business community has navigated the evolving demands of a public health crisis, developing innovative solutions to address the complex challenges faced across our community.  

Lancaster County’s rich history is infused with powerful stories of adaptation and resilience in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges. From the impact of sociohistorical events to the evolution of our local economy and today’s current crisis, the Lancaster County business community has demonstrated an exceptional capacity to overcome adversity. 

We are excited to provide the opportunity to hear from three local organizations about their history in Lancaster County, including the transformation of their structures and locations, their relationship with the community, workforce needs and development, and moments of resiliency. 

Following the panel discussion, we will transition to virtual breakout rooms to share and discuss successful strategies implemented this past year to increase organizational resiliency. We will return to the main session to wrap up the program with a moderated Q&A with our panelists.  

The Demuth Foundation’s exhibition, Smokestacks and Skyscrapers: Modern Moments from the 20th Century, is on display at the Demuth Museum, focusing on the urban landscape of the first half of the 20th century. The modern lens through which these buildings are captured portrays the dynamic interplay between industry and community.
