Among the many relationship building opportunities available through your Clermont Chamber of Commerce and Clermont Chamber of Commerce Foundation, one of the best and quickest ways to get involved is to become a volunteer. Volunteering time and leadership to a Chamber committee is a great way to benefit from your Chamber and get connected to other members.

The Clermont Chamber has been a great resource for me personally and professionally. Before I started working in this part of town, I can say that I had rarely ever set foot in Clermont County and I grew up my whole life in the Cincinnati area. I decided to get involved with the Chamber so I could learn more about this community. Since I attend many of the events and volunteer on numerous committees, I have met so many great people. I am only one of many insurance agents that is a member of the Chamber,and I have received a lot of leads from different people in different industries. But the pleasant surprise is I have also received many leads from some of the other insurance agents with whom I have formed a great relationship. When it comes to Chamber membership, you will always get back what you put into it.
First and foremost, I want to thank everyone at the Chamber for your help, support and just flat out the level of excellence you all brought to us at ribbon cutting ceremony. We are so beyond grateful for all that you did at the event and leading up to the opening.
Secondly, I just want to express how unbelievably impressed everyone was and is with all that the Clermont Chamber is and does. I received sooo many compliments in regards to the Chamber during the event from those that have been unfamiliar. There is absolutely no doubt that none of this would have been possible without your involvement. It’s exciting the be leading the state in a new model of health plan delivery and I get the feeling this is just the beginning.
