Here is what our Chamber of Commerce Board Members have to say!

“The Chamber has been one of the key components in helping me build my network. I have been able to elevate my personal and professional brand by building and sustaining chamber relationships.

The business contacts I have made in the chamber have been extremely helpful. The chamber is all about connecting business and it serves that purpose well.

I am personally grateful for the friends I have made in the chamber. Whether it is personal or professional, I can always rely on my chamber family.” – Kathy S. Romito, Community Relations Manager, Western Reserve Hospital

“I love our Chamber because it joins professionals in ways that promotes and facilitates lifelong friendships and relationships that strengthen the community.”  – Marie Cutlip, CPA Better Financial Solutions

“The Cuyahoga Falls chamber has really helped me overcome my fear of talking in front of large groups about my business and to get me to become more outgoing with other local businesses.” – Nate Winston, Co-Owner, E.C. P. Auto Repair

 

“The Cuyahoga Falls Chamber of Commerce has helped me make connections, develop professional relationships, and grow my business!”  – Brent VanFossen, Owner, Metropolis Popcorn 

Our city is made up of small, entrepreneurial businesses in which the Chamber, the City and our Schools play an important role. The unifying factor is that these people could live and work anywhere they choose, and they are coming to the Cuyahoga Falls because this is an attractive lifestyle for them. - Laura Petrella, Chamber CEO
