The Chamber is proud to announce the opening of the Business Resource Center, located in the Chamber offices in downtown Steubenville on Thursday, May 10th. This important office is designed to assist a prospective business owner or anyone considering relocating a business to Jefferson County by providing a one-stop source of information and services in the most efficient and effective manner possible.
On Thursday, eleven Chamber member professionals gave their time and expertise to help ensure that the “Marketing 101” workshop at the Steubenville YWCA was a useful and information-filled event. From 9 a.m. until noon, attendees were able to engage face-to-face with local marketing and social media experts who covered a myriad of topics. Each opened with a five-minute overview of their topic to the entire audience followed by table-top break out groups hosted by each presenter.

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.”
