HISTORY

The Cuyahoga Falls Chamber of Commerce began in the fall of 1926 by a group of businessmen and property owners.  At the Annual Meeting of the Falls Civic   Association, a committee of 15 was  appointed for the purpose of organizing a Chamber of Commerce.  The first Meeting was held at the City Hall on November 24, 1926, followed by a membership campaign in January 1927.

In 2005 the Chamber of Commerce recognized a need for a non-profit foundation that would serve the purpose of raising money to put back in the  community by way of scholarships.
