The Lorain County Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1988. Since that time, we have remained focused on promoting and supporting the success and growth of the Lorain County business community. We have over 650 members and are the largest Chamber of Commerce on Cleveland’s west side. We are a regional chamber, working with our partners to help expand the area’s “talent development capacity,” and we act as the navigator to help develop leaders who are committed to making Lorain County a great place to live, work and start a business. On behalf of our stakeholders, we are committed to being “the voice behind the business community,” which includes our members, elected officials, educational partners, and philanthropic and non-profit entities.
Our mission is to link Lorain County’s business community together.
