Jason Black ’08

Summer 2007 Davies Leader

“Developing a Communications Tool for the Chamber of Commerce”
Meadville Area Chamber of Commerce

The Chamber of Commerce works on projects that address the economic, social, educational, and political well-being of the Meadville community. Jason contributed to this mission by spending the summer working on the development of a communications tool to increase the expediency and efficiency of the Chamber to: email members; provide legislative updates; and create a forum for the community to voice project ideas for the Chamber. Jason was also able to provide support to the planning phases of Taste of Meadville and annual fundraising events as well as “tackle” the daunting task of receptionist work.

Overall, Jason feels that the Chamber was a great place to work and provided a unique insight into the Meadville Community. Aside from honing his computer skills, Jason also notes that his experience with the Chamber allowed him to gain experience in marketing, sales, accounting, and advertising. The most beneficial aspect of his experience: networking!

Jason is an Economics major at Allegheny College and will spend the fall semester kicking footballs for the Gators!
