Our collective voice is the largest in Lebanon County and through our alliance with PBA, we are the largest voice in the state of Pennsylvania. The LCBA works to keep your business running smoothly by working with local officials to provide a pro-business, pro-building environment.

NETWORKING

The LCBA provides countless ways to network and build relationships.  The association has a wide array of programs and events that will provide you with enjoyment and personal satisfaction as you interact with contacts to grow your business. We host a handful of membership networking and social events throughout the year, along with our Annual Golf Outings and Tabletop Night! If you show up, and get active, you will start making more contacts in this area who know the industry!

EDUCATION

As a business owner, it’s important to stay current with industry trends, regulations, and general business practices.  The LCBA is your source for your professional education needs.  Through our many education programs, we’ll provide information for you to integrate the latest industry news into your business. If we are not hosting, we can help find a local association hosting educational seminars or conferences.
