Mount Aloysius College and the Eastern Cambria County Chamber of Commerce held their first Business and Community Connection Coffee Session on March 6, 2020 on the College’s campus. Several local businesses were in attendance for the topic, “How can area data help your business?”

The discussion included themes such as forecasting and managing with data, streamlining operations, employee recruitment, and data solutions for small businesses. The conversation also included ways that Mount Aloysius College students could work alongside local businesses to benefit both parties.

Christina Koren, Director of Institutional Advancement at MAC, said the meeting presented a large number of opportunities for growth moving forward.

“There are so many ways that Mount Aloysius College can help the local community,” said Koren. “We want to help share that news and also help the community understand that their involvement plays a big role in the education of our students.”

The next meeting is scheduled for April 3. For more information or to register, email
