Senior Vice President, Member Relations
Alison is the Senior Vice President of Member Relations for The Chamber. In her Member Relations role, she has the privilege of helping entrepreneurs, small/medium/large businesses, non-profits, charities, and community organizations. She prides herself on the many benefits and exposure opportunities a regional organization provides to its members and partners. Planning networking/community events, brainstorming business growth ideas with members (or future members!), making business connections and forging new partnerships, and mapping out strategic member branding/marketing campaigns are some of her responsibilities.
Alison Pickel started working at The Chamber in November of 2008 soon after graduating from Temple University (GO OWLS!) with a degree in Communications. She began her Chamber days assisting with Phillipsburg & Easton Area Initiatives. As a native “Jersey girl” (grew up in Phillipsburg, but born in Easton), she was in familiar territory and knew the communities well. She continued working exclusively in those communities as the regional liaison until raising her hand for a spot on the coveted Member Relations team.
Enjoying life with her husband and best friend Matthew, chilling with family and friends, reading good books, jamming out at concerts, perfecting her fishing skills, traveling to cool places, watching the Philadelphia Eagles, taking long beach walks, and visiting any one of Lehigh Valley’s amazing restaurants are Alison’s favorite activities.
