Chamber Alliance Announces Sarah Thomas as Annual Dinner Keynote Speaker

The Greater Reading Chamber Alliance (GRCA) is pleased to announce that Sarah Thomas will serve as keynote speaker at GRCA’s 108th Annual Dinner. Thomas is best known as the NFL’s first female referee, joining the league as a down judge in 2015. She not only worked Super Bowl LV last season, but also was named one of Sports Illustrated’s 100 Most Influential NFL Figures of All Time. The Annual Dinner is the area’s largest gathering of business and community leaders, with an expected crowd of around 1,000 people.

With the same unflappability that it takes to make a split-second call on the field, Thomas will share key insights on overcoming adversity – and the odds – finding your passion while maintaining work-life balance, decisionmaking, and not only succeeding as a female in a male-dominated industry but achieving breakthrough success for males and females alike.

The Dinner will also celebrate the Greater Reading business community with the Greater Reading Top Business Awards, the Entrepreneurial Excellence Awards, and the Albert Boscov Economic Development Award. The dinner will be held Thursday, Sept. 9, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Truck N Brew at Willow Glen Park, 94 Park Ave., Sinking Spring. The public is invited to join GRCA for its signature event, which provides nearly 1,000 business leaders the opportunity to network, entertain guests and clients, and celebrate the achievements of the Greater Reading business community.

The event’s title sponsor is Wells Fargo. Sponsorships are available by contacting Rachael Romig, Senior Director of Events and Special Programs, at [email protected] or 610-898-7775. For more information about the Dinner and to purchase tickets, visit or contact the GRCA office at 610-376-6766.
