ABOUT THE CHAMBER

The Parma Area Chamber of Commerce is a partnership of people working together to build a better community with collaboration at the heart of all activities. Successful Partnerships with all levels of government and with community organizations make it possible for us to accomplish our goals. The more a business is involved with the community, the more it benefits from the community. Our team is focused on the communities we serve and helping businesses thrive. The Chamber communicates with companies each year about locating to our area, thereby providing more jobs and an increased tax base for community funding and continuously seeks ways to attract more customers into our area.

We’re able to deliver significant benefits and discount opportunities directly to our members through our partnerships with the Northern Ohio Area Chambers of Commerce (NOACC).
