A Word from the President

We’d like to say a special thank you to all of our members who have made the choice to renew their membership in our Chamber for 2021. And we’d like to encourage everyone else to consider a renewal for their business. I started my own company in Middleburg Heights in 2006 and immediately joined the Chamber because I simply didn’t know anyone in the local business community.
