    It is with deep sympathy that PEDA informs you of the untimely passing of longtime member and friend, Lue Ann Pawlick.

    Lue Ann was successful in many endeavors throughout her professional career, though many of us knew her through the many years she spent in the economic development industry, representing communities in the Mon Valley during her time with the Middle Monongahela Industrial Development Association.

    Lue Ann was a passionate economic development professional, whose dedication to her family, friends and community and whose positive energy will be deeply missed. We ask that you keep her family in your thoughts during this very difficult time.

With this in mind, they are conducting a survey on the Impact of Childcare on Business and the Workforce that they hope will demonstrate what strategies are being implemented to support childcare needs, and importantly, what resources are needed to help businesses navigate workforce childcare options.

    Your responses are instrumental to guiding regional and statewide solutions and both the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry and the Pennsylvania Early Learning Investment Commission appreciate your participation in this survey by April 22, 2021.
