Monroe County Gigabit Project Yields Great Results
In 2017, the Project Team of Lewis Strategic, Dellicker Strategies and Business Information Group (BIG) issued a request for proposals in April seeking private-sector investments in local broadband.

Thanks to the dedication, passion and experience of Dellicker Strategies, the Monroe County Gigabit Project resulted in more aggressive pricing and multiple service upgrades.

President and CEO Kevin Dellicker explained, “The best way to make sure you can sustain a viable communications model is to pull your buying power and present yourself as a profitable target, and you can make it work,” he explained. He also commented “I think that we’re just beginning to see continued investments in Monroe County and similar projects like this all across the state. Read More

PNGAS Continues Legislative Success
Over the past three (3) years, PNGAS has successively led efforts to restore the local tax exemption for active-duty pay, increase the Educational Assistance Program (“EAP”) from $12 million to $13 million and increase the DMVA state budget. The local tax exemption has saved members of the Guard more than $7.7 million, through June 30, 2018.
Youth Challenge Legislation Signed Into Law
In August 2017, PNGAS hosted an important legislative tour of the Maryland National Guard Youth ChalleNGe program to demonstrate this efficiently operating program to PA legislative leaders and staff.

PNGAS-led efforts resulted successful passage of the law to establish the Pennsylvania Youth ChalleNGe Program, making Pennsylvania the 29th state to adopt this successful program, which is executived and managed by our PA National Guard. The Youth ChalleNGe Program was established by the National Guard in 1993 to turn around the lives of young men and women between the ages of 16 and 18 who are experiencing difficulty in completing traditional high school. The program is free and is managed by each participating state/territory.

Meet Ceaera

Ceaera became a Lewis Strategic intern in 2014. After getting married in 2016, she hit the pause button on career plans, got married and began traveling the country.

Signature Diabetes Institute (SDI) Plans August 22 Launch in Bucks County, PA
The Signature Diabetes Institute (SDI) was established to bring together the Greater Philadelphia region's dynamic clinical endocrinologists, Alan Schorr, DO and Arvind Cavale, MD, along with dieticians Lesley Kelner and Natalia Berila to use the best practices of the Signature Diabetes Institute to reduce the human and financial costs of diabetes.
Increasing rapidly, diabetes already costs the metro Philadelphia region more than $4.1 Billion, annually. An organization with 1,000 lives has an annual diabetes cost of more than $1.1 million dollars, covering nearly 100 diabetics with 260 prediabetics. Unless diabetes is managed this plan is seeing 5 more diabetics every year and escalating human and financial costs. Diabetes is very disruptive to families and employers for appointments, absenteeism and increased hospital visits.

Organizations address the rising costs and impacts of diabetes by contracting SDI to maintain its total cost of diabetes. Through a thorough implementation plan and intake strategy, SDI immediately impacts organizational costs. SDI helps plan sponsors, trustees, directors and board members manage one of its fastest growing expenses.
