About The Chamber

Our Purpose and Mission

Our purpose is to identify and promote the economic well-being of Wellman businesses and citizens and to enhance providing goods and services to the citizens of Wellman and the greater area.

As a not-for-profit, member-based business organization, the mission of the Wellman Chamber of Commerce is to serve its members and community by creating economic prosperity and enhancing the quality of life for all who visit, live, and work within our region.

For many years, our member group has been building a stronger economy and a better business community toward growing our community. We have accomplished these efforts by focusing on three strategic elements: Public Policy, Economic Development, and Services to Businesses.


Public Policy

The Chamber provides leadership in articulating business viewpoints in the public arena and strives to be the regionís primary source of information about local and regional business issues. Through the work of our committees, the Chamber works on issues which create and maintain a healthy climate for doing business in Wellman and our trade area.


Economic Development

The Chamber strives to improve our local economy by working with local and regional governments, the community, business leaders, and all stakeholders to attract new businesses to the area, by helping existing businesses to expand, by working with all stakeholers to improve the local workforce, promote community events, and provide leadership on a broad cross-section of economic development issues. We are committed to perspectives and practices that promote sustainable economic outcomes, and that assist our organizations and business institutions, and our community with achieving these outcomes.


Services to Businesses

The Chamber offers networking opportunities, educational programs, marketing programs, and other services to fill the needs of our business members and contribute to measurable growth for them and our community. The Chamber offers these services in conjunction with other professional services to assist businesses, community organizations, local government, and all stakeholders with meeting their strategic goals and objectives.
