    Chamber Announces Allegheny Conference CEO Annual Lunch Keynote Speaker

    The Allegheny Conference on Community Development is one of the United States' foremost civic leadership organizations. For almost 75 years, the Conference has been bringing together public and private sector leaders across southwestern Pennsylvania to improve the economic future and quality of life of the 10-county region. Pashman brings a wealth of experience to the position, including in the area of workforce development, a challenging issue the Chamber has been working to address in Indiana County.

    "We felt with her role in marketing the region for business investment and talent as well as championing public policies to improve our region's competitiveness, Stefani Pashman would be the perfect speaker for this year's annual lunch," said Joe Reschini, Chairman of the Chamber's Board of Directors.  

    A networking reception will begin at 11 a.m. followed by lunch served beginning at noon. Official invitations will be mailed in early October, though the event is open to everyone. Reservations are being accepted now. Tickets are as follows:

    $75 per person
    $725 per table

    $100 per person
    $975 per table

    Advanced registrations can be made now at or by calling the Chamber at 724-465-2511. 

    Sponsorship recognition opportunities are also available. High level sponsors for this year's event will be invited to attend a special VIP event with Pashman before lunch. 

    In addition to Pashman's speech, the Chamber will announce the 2019 Class of the Indiana County Business Hall of Fame at the annual luncheon. Nomination forms are available on the Chamber website.
    Ms. Pashman is active in numerous national and local organizations. Her board service has included the Federal Reserve Board of Cleveland, Pittsburgh Board; the U.S. Conference of Mayors Workforce Development Council; Vibrant Pittsburgh; and the Jewish Community Center of Greater Pittsburgh, where she is an officer. She is a graduate of Leadership Pittsburgh and was elected to the International Women's Forum.

    Previously, Pashman led a transformation of the organization, Partner4Work, from a fragmented mix of government-run programs to a comprehensive workforce system that connects funding, expertise and opportunities for employers and job seekers. Under her direction, Partner4Work evolved from a policy-making group to an action-oriented organization. Its annual budget grew from $1 million to $20 million and its staff, from seven to 35 people. Its community engagement strategies led to the creation of Pittsburgh Works, a three-year-old nationally recognized model of 80 public and private organizations that work together to match available talent with employers.

    Ms. Pashman holds an M.B.A. and a Masters in Health Administration from the University of Michigan and a B.A. from Washington University in St. Louis.
