Board of Trustees

Message from the Chair: Mike Powell, Sign Solutions of Ohio

As we reflect upon 2022 our community has seen many positive changes. These changes have been great examples of what can be achieved when we collaborate and work in unity. The Lima Allen County Chamber along with other local agencies, businesses and government officials have demonstrated their compassion and commitment to making Lima/Allen County a great place to work, live, and play.

Entering our 135th year as serving the community the Lima Allen County Chamber is focused on helping all businesses succeed in the challenges that face us today and in the future. As a member driven- organization we are dedicated to serve, represent, and enhance business growth for all businesses, whether large, or small, (brick and mortar) or (non-brick and mortar).

Through the leadership, collaboration, and advocacy of the Lima Allen County Chamber of Commerce our mission will be accomplished by focusing on Small Business Development, Membership Development, Workforce Development, Program and Event Development, Legislative/Small Business Advocacy Development, and Community Development with economic impact.

As a small business owner, I have been blessed to have experienced the Lima/ Allen County Chambers dedication helping small businesses succeed through programs, events, and services. We are extremely grateful to have support and commitment from our larger corporations. They are completely vested in our community and small business growth, through their various contributions. I encourage all to seek the value that the Lima Allen County Chamber of Commerce can add. (With a membership base of nearly 900 we are strong in numbers, but even stronger when we invest our time and our talents to help our fellow businesses.) We look forward to our journey in 2023 with your partnership.
