The growth of all business is important for economic development. The coordination of the small and large business sectors through formal organizations, such as the Chamber, is vital to the process. Economic development focuses on the recruitment of new business operations, assisting in the expansion or retention of current businesses and assisting in the start-up of new businesses. Economic development for the Williamsport/Lycoming County region is the development of the community’s economic wealth for the well-being of our inhabitants.
