Greater Cleveland Chamber of Commerce
The mission of the Greater Cleveland Chamber of Commerce (GCCC) is to market the products and services of its membership; to promote economic development through local and outside shopping and investment in the Cleveland Area Community; and to provide leadership, ideas and action to enhance the quality of life in the Cleveland Area Community.
This is a question often asked by prospective members. Many Chamber members have attended our Chamber 101 Class. Held monthly from 12-1pm Chamber 101 creates awareness of how the Chamber works and, more important, the best ways to maximize our members investment in the Chamber. Possibilities are endless. Every business has a stake in our community. This stake can be safeguarded by working with others through the Chamber to protect and advance the economy. The Chamber helps ensure the community progresses, which in turn ensures the success of business, along with the entire community. Support of your Chamber reaps rewards for the entire community.
Member support is "plowed back" to yield a multitude of benefits including new industries, increased payrolls, expand health and safety, improve transportation, facilitate legislation, protect businesses, and advance our community. Chamber membership and fund raisers provide financial support allowing the Chamber to offer a broad variety of programs benefiting not only our membership, but the entire Greater Cleveland area.
We believe and promote the power of our community.
The Greater Cleveland Chamber of Commerce unifies public spirit and directs it into useful and constructive channels. It helps create and express sound opinions on questions affecting the welfare of Cleveland and the region. We believe in the power of community.
