By Katie Johnsen, Events Coordinator, GRCA
The Greater Reading Chamber Alliance (GRCA) is in the business of connecting companies all over Berks County. One small way that has been making a big impact is Lunch & Learn—a program specifically designed to get our member businesses in front of other Chamber members. More than just networking, these lunches offer tangible lessons with actionable tasks that can be used that day.
In the past few months, we’ve had member businesses present on topics such as:
- DISC Assessment, and how to overcome your shortcomings to clear a path for personal and professional growth
- What to do with your data and how to get actionable tasks from your reporting
- How to register as a Woman Certified Business, and if it’s worth it for your company
- Mergers & Acquisitions, and making sure your business is ready for ownership transitions
Save the date for these upcoming Lunch & Learns:

Moore is a partner in Barley Snyder’s Employment and Litigation practice groups and chairs the Labor Law Practice Group. Attendees will receive a copy of an employee handbook they can use to create their own.
