Cuyahoga Falls Chamber Joins Chamber Action Alliance
The Chamber Action Alliance welcomes the newest partner, the Cuyahoga Falls Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber Action Alliance is a grassroots coalition of local chambers located throughout the state of Ohio. These chambers are committed to pushing for reform and advancing the business community’s interest in Ohio. Members of the Alliance participate in letter campaigns; engage local elected officials; and educate chamber members on important issues.“Hundreds of bills are introduced each year in both the House and Senate, many of which have a significant impact on the business community,” said Sydney King, Grassroots Manager at the Ohio Chamber of Commerce.
“By joining the CAA, the Cuyahoga Falls Chamber of Commerce and its members receive valuable information on all business related issues being considered by the Ohio General Assembly.” As a business leader in Cuyahoga Falls and Northeast Ohio, the Cuyahoga Falls Chamber of Commerce is truly committed to creating a favorable economic environment for businesses and job growth.
The Cuyahoga Falls Chamber of Commerce is the 94th local chamber of commerce to join the Chamber Action Alliance.
The Chamber Action Alliance looks forward to working with a talented group of professionals who are committed to advancing business interests at the statehouse and throughout Ohio.
