About Us

The Canal Winchester Chamber was re-established in 1985. The Chamber grew from a handful of civic-minded citizens to over 275 members strong. The Chamber, working diligently over the years, promoting a strong and solid business environment achieved a 5th place listing in Columbus Business First's publication of growing chambers.

We pride ourselves in developing close community ties with residents, city officials, and our school district. The organization is comprised of businesses, individuals and organizations dedicated to the promotion of business and the community.

Through partnership with local businesses, government and leaders, we advocate for, and promote, a prosperous business community.

Board Members are annually required to attend seven board meetings, one event every month, and participate in one committee.
