Established in 1985, the Nordonia Hills Chamber of Commerce offers a wealth of benefits to members and residents. The mission then was to bring the area businesses together for support as the community began changing. It’s mission now is very similar – to promote its members, to strive for business improvement and enhancement in the overall quality of life in the Nordonia Hills community.
In 1995, this chamber had only 50 members; today we hover around 300 members. That growth is not only because the business community has grown, but also because we are sensitive to the needs of our businesses and strive to offer them what they want and need to become successful. The health insurance discounts and workers’ compensation discount rating program can save an employer thousands of dollars a year. Event sponsorship opportunities enable all businesses large and small to promote their products and services. Building relationships is a priority at all networking functions. All things being equal, we believe that people do business with people they know and trust.
The responsibility of the Executive Director/CEO, Board of Directors and this Chamber is to support and assist individuals and businesses as they create that synergy which will lead to growth and success – and to do it professionally, resourcefully and economically.
