International Trade Solutions 

Stevens & Lee/Griffin International LLC


International Trade Assistance Partnership – iTAPP
Helping Chamber Members Increase Their Exports


The Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry has partnered with Stevens & Lee/Griffin International (SLGI) to underscore the importance of maintaining a strong and growing export sector within the Pennsylvania economy.


The International Trade Assistance Partnership Program ("iTAPP") has been tasked with the mandate of assisting Chamber members to increase their international sales to selected markets around the world, beginning with BRAZIL, CHILE, COLOMBIA, PERU, and JAPAN. Other future target markets include EUROPE and AFRICA.


Why Your Company should participate in iTAPP

  • iTAPP offers the most cost-effective way for a Pennsylvania company to receive ongoing trade support in important, growing export markets. To join our program either in Chile/Colombia/Peru, in Brazil, or in Japan, the fixed monthly fee for Chamber members is $1,500 – a 20% discount over the non-Chamber member fee of $1,875.
  • The program is led by the Commonwealth's longest-serving Deputy Secretary for International Business Development, Wilfred Muskens, and the former Secretary of DCED, Sam McCullough, who was responsible for making international trade a strategic economic development priority for Pennsylvania.
  • The state no longer offers free or low-cost trade support services in any of those markets.
  • Participation will also help you stay abreast of changes in federal policy, law, rule and regulation which impact international trade.

For more information on how Stevens & Lee/Griffin International can assist you, visit our website or contact Wilfred H. Muskens, 717.399.1728 | whm@slginternational.

Organizational Performance and Team Alignment 

Organizational Performance and Team Alignment


The Brand and Culture Alignment Toolkit (BCAT)


Based on widely accepted behavioral science, the BCAT is a revolutionary approach to team building that has been shown to double employee engagement as measured by Gallup's Q12 Survey, thus driving significant improvements in several Key Performance Indicators:


  • 37% lower absenteeism
  • Lower turnover
    • 25% in high-turnover organizations
    • 65% in low-turnover (65%) organizations
  • 28% Less shrinkage
  • Fewer safety incidents
    • 48% overall
    • 41% in health care patient safety
  • 41% fewer quality incidents (defects)
  • 10% higher customer metrics (satisfaction, commitment, etc.)
  • 21% higher employee productivity
  • 22% higher profitability

More than a typical one-and-done, all-too-temporary team-building experience, the Brand and Culture Alignment Toolkit (BCAT) consists of instruments that measure and map the shared perception of a team's mission-specific Brand and Culture, and methods that apply this information to align team behavior and accelerate organizational performance.


Simple, budget-friendly, completed online in less than 20 minutes, the BCAT Survey is the First Step in igniting the potential energy of collaboration that will propel your people beyond self-interest, inspire them to exceed their individual strengths, and set them on a path to excellence. Your 40-page BCAT Results Report will help you live your Brand, to more clearly hear, shape, express, spread and sustain your organization's results-focused Culture, and provide a rallying point around which to align, engage, and commit your people to your purpose.


We're proud to partner with the PA Chamber in offering this innovative program to our fellow members at a discount of 15% for the BCAT Survey and Full Report and all related Alignment Exercises.
