Advance Greater Akron

The Greater Akron Chamber has developed a 5-year strategic plan known as Advance Greater Akron for delivering economic development through a focus on talent, leadership, and innovation. By engaging CEOs throughout our region to provide knowledge, planning, coordination and funding, the Greater Akron Chamber leverages our region’s private sector to grow the economic base and increase prosperity for all businesses and citizens.

The Greater Akron Chamber’s Strategic Economic Development Plan resulted from six months of extensive analysis including leadership assessment, analysis of major economic opportunities, interviews, meetings and working sessions with over 125 leaders of the Greater Akron region.
