A discussion will be led by keynote speaker Jason Fink, executive vice president of the Williamsport / Lycoming Chamber of Commerce. The Williamsport region has seen an increase in economic development and growth from the Marcellus Shale industry.
"With the recent increase of the oil and gas industry, the number one question we get is 'what has been going on at the airport?'" said YNGAir Partners president Doug Kibby. "This open house is an opportunity for all to come and see for themselves and get re-acquainted with the airport again"
