Manheim’s chamber jump starts year with local speaker

Quintin Frey, president of Turkey Hill Dairy, will share how his company was able to manage the challenges of business growth while maintaining a local brand at the Manheim Chamber of Commerce’s January Jump Start program Jan. 19.

Frey’s discussion will focus on how Turkey Hill Dairy has grown in size but continues to keep its small-business identity.

Pam Haines, chamber vice president, said that since the Manheim chapter has a large number of small business members, Frey’s message will really resonate with the crowd.

Jump Start programs, short seminars that include networking opportunities, are held every other month.

“The Jump Start series is part of the chamber’s strategic plan,” Haines explained. “Our goal for these programs is that you hear (information) in the morning and use it in the afternoon.”

The January program has traditionally featured more of a high profile speaker, but still keeping with the local focus.

“January is the beginning of a new year, so we like to have someone who can also be a motivational or inspirational speaker to kick off the new year,” she said.

Frey will speak at 8:30 a.m. Jan. 19 at Enck’s Banquet and Conference Center, 1461 Lancaster Road, Manheim. Jump Start programs are breakfast meetings.

The January program is sponsored by Susquehanna Bank. Networking and registration begin at 7:30 a.m., followed by a breakfast buffet. The program will begin at 8:30, and a question and answer session will follow.

The cost of the program is $25 for chamber members and $35 for non-members. The registration deadline is Jan. 16. For more information, contact the chamber at 665-6330. To register, visit www.manheimchamber.com.
