About the Chamber
Welcome to the Wheeling Area Chamber of Commerce. Our website will provide you with valuable information regarding our Chamber members as well as benefits to becoming a member and important information about the City of Wheeling. Our on-going partnership with the City of Wheeling and REDP (Regional Economic Development Partnership) has become stronger than ever before and we are working to make the Wheeling area an ideal place to do business.
I have served as president for the Wheeling Area Chamber of Commerce for the past 18 years, and I must admit that now is a very excited time to be working with area businesses. Our mission? to provide leadership to the greater Wheeling area for economic development while promoting an enhanced quality of life through support of cultural, educational and social growth. In short we help businesses do business.
Our events calendar is packed full of networking opportunities to help businesses grow and all of our events provide sponsorship opportunities to help businesses compete. Our Chamber programs help entrepreneurs get started in business. They help existing businesses remain competitive. They aid workingmen and women by battling for reasonable taxes and economic development. They spur tourism through programs such as the City of Lights and the annual Perkins Restaurant and Bakery Fantasy In Lights Parade. They develop leadership for both young people and those in business, through excellent training programs. Finally our programs encourage government leaders at the local, state, and even national levels to maintain the infrastructure that attracts new business and helps area residents.
I invite you to explore our website and to take advantage of the many opportunities that the Wheeling Area Chamber of Commerce offers.
