Mission and Vision
Our vision is to be the driving force behind the success of all Summit County businesses.
The Summit Chamber’s mission is to ensure business success for our members and to foster community-wide economic vitality by providing resources, educational opportunities, and business connections. We lead with a clear vision of the future. We unite key stakeholders. And we support collaborative efforts throughout the community.
Businesses are the lifeblood of a community and perhaps the ultimate public private partnership. Local businesses provide jobs, sales tax revenue to support important public infrastructure and capital projects, they provide support to our local nonprofits, schools and sports teams, and create a sense of place that people, from all corners of the world, want to visit. Without the business community and the commerce that they provide, government would not be able to provide public safety, health care or housing services, or have the ability to protect and maintain our outstanding recreational opportunities.
The business community is born out of identifying gaps and needs in a market and finding creative, innovative ways to fill those needs. Innovation breeds success.
