Month: December 2021

The latest from the Chamber, our members, and Jefferson County


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Chamber!

The year 2021 brought with it a sense of hope – hope that business would return to normal, hope that we would no longer carry the burden of others health and safety, and hope that the term “pandemic” would be a thing of the past. While the hope for a normal year faded in the early months, we still found ways to make the most of 2021. We took the challenges and lessons learned in 2020 and turned them into strengths for the year ahead.

The Chamber saw businesses, new and seasoned, anxious to learn, grow, and connect. Our members reached across the table and asked their neighbor for help and offered support to those in need. There was a sharing of knowledge and resources unlike anything we’ve seen before. The last two years have shown us that we are a resilient community. Though there is still more work to be done, I am confident that, together, we will continue to build a stronger economy and community for all of us in Jefferson County.

The Chamber’s Ohio Valley Shop Where I Live website is growing! You can now purchase gift cards and products from over 20 local businesses online.

The Ohio Valley Shop Where I Live website promotes local spending like no other platform in the Valley and finally allows our local small businesses to compete for online shopping dollars. It’s free, easy to set up, and creates a modern, streamlined promotional and revenue opportunity for your business or organization. For many of our members, this is providing a “mini website” and shopping cart for them for the first time ever.

Struggling to Find Employees?

The Chamber’s Project Workforce program is designed to help improve the connection between businesses and quality employees.

Many local businesses are struggling, post-Covid, to fill important jobs that are crucial to staying open. We want to assist them by getting the word out to job seekers, local and out of the area, who may want to come here to work/live.

When a member submits their job opening information to the Chamber they will receive:

  • Their listing information sent to our 800+ database of member businesses and organizations and their employees.
  • Their listing information posted to the Chamber job bank at
  • A post to the chamber Facebook page with their listing details. (1700 followers)
  • Personal assistance from Dan Wilson at Ohio Means Jobs in creating and posting it to the OMJ site.
  • Their listing information sent to all Jefferson County high school administrators to be sent on to students/parents.
  • Their listing information sent to EGCC and Franciscan University for their student/faculty job boards.
  • Their listing information gets three mentions on 106.3 The River (They are doing this for $1 each which the Chamber will cover for the member)
