The Mentor Area Chamber of Commerce was established in 1960 to promote local businesses in a divided township and village, before they joined together to become a city in 1963. Since then, the chamber has been working hard to support its mission in providing opportunities for local businesses and the residents to work together for the enrichment of the community. Today the chamber offers many benefits, programs and services to both large and small businesses from virtually every profession that represents its nearly 700 members.
The Mentor Area Chamber of Commerce promotes and advocates on behalf of member organizations to encourage business development and support a high quality of life for our local communities.
