From the Desk of Trish McFarland Summer has arrived with longer days and warm nights. Whether you’re traveling to a local shore point, have your plane ticket booked for that dream vacation, or staying right here in Delaware County, the Chamber is here to keep you connected. The economy is getting better every day, consumers are spending again, and that is great news! Not too long ago, we were all feeling the blows of the financial crisis of 2007 and were reevaluating where we spent money and time, leaving vacations basically nonexistent. For this summer, with everyone spending less time at the office, our calendar may look a little lighter, but we are still here with events and opportunities to do business. We want to take this “downtime” to reflect and prepare for the year ahead. We’ve been listening to members, most recently our nonprofits, to hear about where challenges are and figuring out where we can step in for support. We will continue to do so over the summer to fulfill our mission and meet the needs of our members. On the horizon we have a busy fall that will be here in the blink of an eye. Stay in touch and have a great summer vacation!

BE PROACTIVE THIS SUMMER TO HELP PREVENT MOSQUITO-BORNE ILLNESSES A vacation should be a time to relax and provide a muchneeded respite from everyday tasks and responsibilities. Traveling to interesting locations, trying new things and returning with lasting memories is ideal; however, something as simple as a mosquito bite can sour the experience altogether. Mosquito-transmitted diseases, such as Zika, malaria and Chikungunya, can follow you home and spread. While Pennsylvania has no recorded cases of the Zika virus, West Nile virus has remained prevalent in Pennsylvania since 1999. Approximately 30 people per year contract West Nile from mosquitos in Pennsylvania. Since 2000, the Pennsylvania Department of Health has maintained the sizeable West Nile Virus Control Program to trap, test and limit the state’s mosquito population. About 10 percent of mosquitos in Pennsylvania carry West Nile. About one in ten people infected will develop a fever, along with other symptoms such as headache, body aches, joint pains, vomiting, diarrhea or a rash. Most people with this type of West Nile virus disease recover completely, but fatigue and weakness can last for several weeks or months. Less than one percent of those infected develop more serious, sometimes fatal, symptoms.

“West Nile virus can lead to neurologic illnesses like meningitis and encephalitis, causing headache, neck stiffness, seizures or even paralysis,” said William McNamee, MD, infectious disease specialist at Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital. “There is no specific treatment or vaccine for West Nile, so recovery can often take weeks or months. In some cases, the neurologic effects may never fully subside.” Protect yourself from mosquito-transmitted disease by: ■ Placing quality screens on all doors, windows and patios to protect your home. ■ Applying EPA or CDC-approved repellents directly to the skin when outside your home. The EPA recommends DEET-based repellent for people of all ages, including pregnant women and children older than two months. The CDC also approved oil of lemon eucalyptus as effective as DEET. Do not rely on insect-repelling wristbands and fans, as these are not effective. ■ Emptying, draining or covering all objects that can hold water. Most mosquitos lay their eggs directly into standing water. ■ Burning citronella candles to deter the mosquitos from detecting the carbon dioxide you breathe. ■ Spraying your yard with insect-deterring fog regularly. Biologic factors can weigh greatly on the prevalence of mosquito bites. For some, avoiding bites remains easier said than done. Certain naturally secreted chemicals, such as lactic acid, attract mosquitos. Additionally, people with Type O blood are more prone to bites – providing unfortunate new meaning for the term “universal donor.” Mosquito-borne illnesses are most often transmitted to people through a bite from an infected mosquito. If you have recently traveled to an area where mosquito-borne illnesses are a threat, it is critical to use repellent even after you return home to prevent local mosquitos from biting you and becoming infected. For additional information about West Nile virus, please call 1.800.GO MERCY or visit cdc.gov/westnile.

READY TO GO GLOBAL?

SBA AND USEAC ARE READY TO HELP Is your small business ready to go global? If you think you’re “too small,” fear not – advances in technology can make worldwide commerce achievable for many small businesses, depending on the goods or services you offer. Small businesses can find exporting success. Though it may require commitment because information will be crucial and financial aspects are a key factor, strategic alliances are the solution – SBA and the U.S. Export Assistance Center (USEAC) are ready to help. In fact, it may be easier than you think. Are you looking for capital for exporting? SBA’s “Export Loan Suite” with our 90% loan guarantees, may be able to help. SBA offers three different programs to help small businesses take advantage of exporting opportunities: ■ The SBA Export Express Loan Program offers financing up to $500,000. It is the simplest export loan product offered by the SBA and allows participating lenders to use their own forms and procedures. The SBA determines eligibility and provides a loan approval in 36 hours or less. ■ The Export Working Capital Program (EWCP) loan provides advances for up to $5 million to fund export transactions from purchase order to collections. This loan has a low guaranty fee and quick processing time. ■ The International Trade Loan (ITL) program offers loans up to $5 million for fixed assets and working capital for businesses that plan to start or continue exporting. Your firm may qualify for the ITL even if you don’t export. If you can show that import competition has adversely affected your business – this 90% guaranteed program may be for you!

Looking for help? The USEAC is here for you. If you're ready to explore the possibilities and challenges of exporting, the USEAC is ready to provide the help you need. These centers are located in major metropolitan areas throughout the United States. Many USEAC’s are staffed by professionals from the SBA, the U.S. Department of Commerce, the U.S. Export-Import Bank, and other public and private organizations. Together, their mission is to provide the help you need to compete in today's global marketplace. Your local USEAC is your one-stop shop, designed to provide export assistance for your small or medium-sized business.

Does your small business face a foreign trade barrier? Let the USEAC help resolve the problem. The U.S. Export Assistance Center is committed to playing its part with other agencies in helping to field small business trade agreement compliance concerns to help ensure small businesses receive the full benefit of their rights under these agreements. The U.S. Small Business Act, as amended, allows SBA to increase the ability of small businesses to compete in international markets and, in cooperation with our interagency partners, help to “ensure that the interests of small businesses are adequately represented in bilateral and multilateral trade negotiations.” U.S. small business exporters, often without even realizing it, depend and rely on the outcomes of negotiated U.S. bilateral and multilateral trade agreements for access to key global and emerging markets. The rules-based global trade system under the World Trade Agreement (WTO) Agreements, plus the 20 U.S. bilateral free trade agreements and other such arrangements, help provide U.S. companies, large and small, predictable and fair trade in international commerce. As SBA’s representative covering Pennsylvania and Delaware, I’m available to help you with your SBA export financing needs, guide you to resources at the USEAC that will help you export, or resolve trade barrier problems.

Government Affairs:

By Alex Rahn, Warner Associates

More Positioning for June 30th Session Deadline The Legislature continued to position legislative vehicles throughout April in advance of the June 30th deadline, but deliberations may have become more difficult due to less than expected revenue collections already $1.2 billion short for the year. The latest bad news was that April was $537 million short of estimates. The Senate Republicans’ plan on pension reform continues to collect co-sponsors, but the actual bill has yet to be introduced. This may mean pension reform will not be part of this years’ budget. The delay could be that the provisions are like the Conference Committee Report on SB1071, which did not garner enough support to pass the Legislature. Plus, the plan does include a new opt in provision for all employees, including legislators. Separate from this, the Governor and State Treasurer Joe Torsella have proposed plans for reduced investment management fees that they claim would save the state millions. While pension reform may be stalled, the House did recently pass four liquor reform bills that will likely be part of any budget negotiations: HB438 allows hotels and restaurants to sell up to 4 bottles of alcohol and HB991 expands to 2000 the number of retail stores allowed to sell wine and spirits. HB 1075 provides for private permits to operate the wholesale system. This legislation is projected to bring in $246.5 million, but not until next fiscal year. Finally, HB 975 breaks up the wholesale wine market and allows private wholesalers to provide wine sales in the Commonwealth, which, according the House estimates will lead to $119 million in revenue. Expanded gaming also remains an important budget topic, not only for next fiscal year but for the current one. HB271 is a point of discussion between the House and Senate and could both address the state’s local share assessment that has a May 26th deadline established by the State Supreme Court. The legislation is going to see an amendment in the House that may also include enough 12

expanded gaming to fill the $100 million hole in Pennsylvania’s current state budget as agreed upon last year. Several ideas have also been proposed to expand gaming for the upcoming fiscal year, namely legalizing Video Game Terminals (VGT’s), sports wagering and Internet gambling. Supporters of HB1010 estimate that revenues for the legalization of VGT’s are $100 million in the first year and $300 million to $500 million in recurring revenue in the following years. This revenue could see a split between the General Fund, a local share, funding for volunteer firefighter and EMS organizations, funding for drug addiction support, and a hold harmless amount that would be dedicated to funding reductions in the casino industry’s portion of the property tax fund contribution. However, leadership in the Senate has stated publicly and privately their hesitation to expand and tax gaming to fill budget deficits. Next, the proposed plans for streamlining administration operations, and agency consolidations are included in both the Governor and House Republican budgets. However, the House plan only projects approximately $800 million of savings and the plan is still facing stiff opposition in the legislature. In fact, the House Human Services Committee recently passed HB1248 which delays the consolidation plan for one year. House and Senate committees have also continued hearings directly on the issue of consolidation, which current DHS Secretary Ted Dallas has formed to call “unification”. Legislators in both chambers alternately defended and panned the move, raising concerns about accountability, and the apparent small amount of cost savings to be realized by the effort. The Wolf Administration has maintained that any cost savings would be incidental to the real goal of making the programs more efficient, once the new Department is fully functioning.


The consolidation requires legislative action, since the Departments to be absorbed were each created by different statutes, and each has its own distinct constituencies, who have not all considered the idea a positive. Also, important is the impact on state employees, as well as their counterparts at the county level who administer various programs under each. Add to that the fact that these agencies use different computer software, and other administrative mechanisms, and it is easy to see how there is concern. This should make for an interesting spring. Other ideas on revenue streams up for negotiation include the Governor’s plan to charge for the services of State Police, increasing the Minimum Wage, a 6.5 percent severance tax on natural gas extracts, and the leasing of the Farm Show Complex. In addition to the revenue generators listed above, many bills introduced have new taxes and revenue; however none of them stands out at this point as potential vehicles for a broad-based tax increase. It is unclear if legislative leadership will agree to a tax increase, but have the votes in their respective Caucuses to fully pass one. However revenue possibilities include an increase to the Personal Income Tax or an increase and/or expansion to the Sales Tax.

Charlie Doane

Matt Specht

Radnor High School – Junior I was honored to be chosen for the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce Foundation 2017 Youth Leadership Academy. I enjoy serving in management and leadership roles and this added more knowledge about how to grow in my roles. In fact, the day after completing the leadership academy I had to give a speech in order to run for the position of Vice President of my junior class. I do believe some of what I learned at YLA gave me the confidence to give a great speech to my classmates and ultimately win the position. I am truly looking forward to serving in student government and utilizing the skills I learned through YLA. Because my disability – Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy – precludes me from being an athlete, I satisfy my love for sports by being a manager for the Varsity football and Varsity lacrosse teams. I have been doing this since my freshman year at Radnor. Holding these positions allows me to interact and learn from the coaches and develop skills to work with others. I truly enjoy the involvement with the teams. The members respect my position and I am treated like a team mate. Outside of sports, I am striving to be selected for the National Honor Society as I have been on the distinguished honor roll since freshman year. I hope to further utilize my experience from YLA to attain internships in the next two years leading up to college. Outside of school I love to volunteer with my family. A true gift is the time we spend cooking for and serving at a homeless shelter 6 times a year. I love to get to know the men, sit and talk about their lives and struggles, which only serves to inspire me to work as hard as possible, so I can give back more as I get older. At YLA, I so enjoyed meeting new people and working with them for a common goal. As we all worked with the featured professionals, we connected and worked together to use the information for our Ignite presentations. It was challenging and rewarding to present in front of a room full of strangers. On top of the information and learning, I have made friends that I will continue to connect with in the future. YLA was an experience I will look back on because I know that it helped me to achieve goals in academics, athletics, and volunteering.

Archmere Academy – Sophmore Matt is finishing his sophomore year at Archmere Academy. He keeps a very busy schedule between his solid academics, team sports, school, and community activities. Matt is a two-season athlete playing both soccer and golf for Archmere. Off the field, he enjoys being involved in various clubs including Conspiracy Theory Club, Ultimate Frisbee Club, and Campus Ministry Club. As a freshman, Matt filled a leadership role as class officer for the Auk Ambassadors, a group that promotes the school to potential new students and families. He will continue this role through his senior year. Matt is able to balance his school activities and work a couple jobs while maintaining high honors at school. Matt began working as a caddie at age 14 at Rolling Green Golf Club in Springfield. This experience has taught him how to communicate effectively with a variety of successful members. Recently, he was promoted to work in the pro shop as well. Matt also is a sacristan at St. Madeline Parish where his responsibilities are to setup for Mass and make sure everything runs smoothly. Over the summer, he will also be doing maintenance work at St. James Regional School. Matt represented Archmere at the Delaware County Youth Leadership Academy held in April at Neumann University. “This was a great experience for me and I learned so much about the various roles of leadership from the perspective of some of the top leaders in our business, government and media community. I especially enjoyed working in groups with peers from different schools discussing how we might become effective leaders in our community”, he said. Matt plans on keeping in touch with the new friends he has made at YLA. He also intends to bring the leadership skills he learned at YLA back to Archmere and, as an upper classman, to use those skills to make himself a better leader.
