Some 18 years ago when I opened my business, a fellow businesswoman suggested I check out the Cuyahoga Falls Chamber of Commerce. She took me to one of the Luncheons, and I was instantly impressed with the number of local businesses that attended as well as the networking that was available. I joined immediately and, over the years, have gained so much from this organization. I have learned many helpful ideas for running my business, received discounts on worker’s compensation and health insurance, made lifelong friendships and received business from the members. My business is located in the city of Cuyahoga Falls so it was important to me to belong to the Chamber, but equally important were the benefits the Chamber could provide. I will continue to support and volunteer for the Cuyahoga Falls Chamber of Commerce, and I encourage other business owners to do the same.
