Assume the Power at BWF

By Kim Walsh Phillips, BWF Marketing Committee Vice-Chair

As a female CEO, I have encountered many instances of gender bias in my career, and

I am not alone. The New York Times recently shared the results of the annual Study of

California Women Business Leaders by the University of California, Davis, and Watermark,

showing that even the progressive Silicon Valley has a long way to go when it comes to

female executive leadership. The article shares, “At California’s biggest public companies,

only about 10 percent of the board members and top executives are women, a level that

has not changed much in the seven years that UC Davis has done the study. That is even

though gender-diverse boards show a 53 percent higher return on equity, the study found.”

How do we change the future of female leadership We start with ourselves. On

Thursday, April 26, the Business Women’s Forum conference and tradeshow will be held.

The 2012 event marks Business Women’s Forum’s 18th year of this collaborative effort

between the Greater Carlisle Area, the Harrisburg Regional, and the West Shore Chambers

of Commerce. The Forum’s mission is to provide opportunities for business women of all

professional levels to network, create business contacts, and develop additional leadership

skills in a motivational and supportive environment.

This year’s keynote speaker, Areva Martin, will present Freedom to Breathe, taking the

audience on a brief tour of women’s historical role as caregivers to the present day, where

although we live in a society that legally gives us the same rights as men, many women still

remain in the background, un-empowered and struggling. Participants will leave with a

game plan to put themselves on the playing board and win.

I encourage you to attend. Together, we can continue to build our arsenal of assets as

our greatest tools to break through barriers, reach new positions of power, and influence

a better future for ourselves and all women in business. For more information, visit www.

Five Ways to Make the Chamber

Golf Outing Work for You

(Number Six Bonus: register early for a discount!)

Over the past few months, the West Shore Chamber of Commerce Golf Committee has

been diligently planning this year’s Annual Golf Outing, taking place on Thursday, May

10 at Blue Ridge Country Club. The Chamber’s outing provides you the opportunity

to have a fun day outside of the office in a setting with other business professionals.

So how can you make the Chamber’s Golf Outing work for you

Employee Development - A day out of the office is a great way to build office

morale. Since the Chamber’s outing is a four-person scramble, it can provide teambuilding

as employees compete as a team for first place. Another idea is to reward

top employees with registrations to the outing.

Networking - Businesses of all sizes can use the outing as a valuable networking

tool. A great way to do this is to have employees split up and ask to be placed in a

foursome.

Customer Appreciation - Show your customers and clients that you appreciate

them with a fun day on the course. They will appreciate the thought and can benefit

from the added networking.

Vendor Development - Most businesses need something from a supplier.

Building relationships with your vendors is a great way to make sure you get the best

quality products and services.

Marketing - The Chamber’s outing provides a superior method of getting your

message to potential customers. The many golf sponsorships give your business

great visibility and start at as little as $50. If you are interested in a sponsorship, call

Leigh-Ann Reitze at 761-0702 for more information.

Visit the events calendar at www.wschamber.org to register to attend the

Chamber’s Annual Golf Outing today! It is $150 per golfer and includes cart, greens

fee, lunch and dinner. There is a 10% discount if you register prior to April 10. We’re

sure you’ll have a great afternoon with the West Shore Chamber, so sign up today.

Exhibit at Swap Your Card

to Double Your Business Plus

The Chamber will be hosting a Swap Your Card to Double Your Business Plus event

to celebrate Small Business Week with the Central Penn Business Journal on May 22

from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. at the Radisson Hotel Harrisburg in Camp Hill. The “plus” in

this event is the addition of small business focused exhibitors who will participate in

the activity in addition to displaying materials and information on business products

and services to help small businesses achieve their goals.

If your business is interested in generating new leads, building brand awareness,

and promoting your products or services, this event is a perfect place to exhibit. Small

businesses have needs in a multitude of areas. Some examples of small business needs

include: office supplies; accounting services; business coaching; print services; legal

services; document destruction; banking; lending; and payroll services.

Exhibit spaces are available for $50 and include a tabletop display, listing in the

event program and registration for one to the event. This event is limited to the first

20 exhibitors and registrations will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. If

your business is interested in exhibiting, call Leigh-Ann Reitze at 761-0702 for more

information. Thank you to event sponsor Radisson Hotel Harrisburg.

Chamber Referral Exchange Group

Holds First Meeting

ChamberConnects, the Chamber’s referral exchange group, held their first meeting on

February 28. The group’s mission is to develop member to member connections by

focusing on building relationships and developing leads based on these relationships.

By understanding what each other does, participants will be able to better identify

strong leads for each other. The group is looking forward to establishing rapport

and credibility with each other which will lead to quality referrals. Leads are not

mandatory for participation in these meetings, as forcing leads to be exchanged may

depreciate the quality of the leads.

At the meetings, each member has the opportunity to describe their business

and share who they want to be introduced to and why; traits of companies that

need their offering; and the decision maker and/or industries they target. In

addition, group members provide testimonials for those members they have

already worked with. ChamberConnects is an industry-exclusive referral

exchange group. Participation is on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants

must be in good standing with the Chamber and committed to attend 75% of the

meetings. For more information, email or call Chris Gehr at chris@wschamber.

Mark Butler Addresses Members at

Business Achievement Luncheon

On February 23, Mark Butler, President & CEO of Ollie’s Bargain Outlet, was presented with the West Shore Chamber of Commerce

Business Achievement Award. This award, established in 1990 and presented in conjunction with sponsor Metro Bank, is given to

an individual or individuals who, through creativity, perseverance, and education: has developed a successful enterprise; whose

efforts have created jobs, products, and opportunities; whose high moral and ethical values have set a standard of excellence in the

marketplace; and whose dynamic leadership has thrust central Pennsylvania into economic prominence.

The first Ollie’s Bargain Outlet store was opened in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania on July 29, 1982, by its four founding fathers:

Mark Butler, Mort Bernstein, Oliver “Ollie” Rosenberg, and Harry Coverman. Mr. Butler spoke fondly of his mentor and Ollie’s

founding father Morton Bernstein. He jokingly stated, “I didn’t go to college and I’m candidly proud of it...I went to the University

of MGB (Morton G. Bernstein).” Mr. Butler credits Bernstein, who served as President & CEO until 2003, as the “driving force behind

the growth of Ollie’s.”

Mr. Butler, since being named President of Ollie’s in 2003, has grown the company from 27 to 114 stores, operating in twelve

states with over 3,500 associates. Ollie’s is now the Mid-Atlantic’s largest retailer of closeout, surplus, and salvage merchandise.

The chain currently operates its 114 stores in 12 states. For more information about Mr. Butler or Ollie’s Bargain Outlet, visit www.
