Chamber president, Tricia Maple, recently attended the annual conference sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce Executives of Ohio in Columbus. The event brings together over 100 chamber executives from throughout the state for a three-day event filled with networking, workshops and presentations.
Ohio Secretary of State, Jon Husted, gave the opening remarks, noting his former position as a chamber of commerce executive in Dayton, Ohio and touching on the goals of his office for the coming years in addition to the changes he has made to make it more business friendly and efficient.
“This is great way to see what other Ohio chambers are working on and meet lots of people who will be helpful resources down the road,” President Maple commented. She also attended the national conference of chamber executives which was held in Nashville last summer, meeting chamber execs from nearly every state in the country. “There is no better way to benchmark our chamber and ensure that we’re working on what we should be working on than to hear from others in the industry. Our chamber already has programs and events in place that are the result of learning about them from a fellow chamber at a conference and more are on the horizon.”
