It seems hard to believe we are already halfway through the first month in 2023. But before we put 2022 in our rearview mirror, we want to welcome aboard the following members who joined the Toledo Chamber in December of 2022.
The Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce on behalf of the Northwest Ohio Manufacturing Alliance (NOMA) is seeking bids from a qualified consultant or team of consultants or community based organization to provide WorkAdvance services. These services will support the achievement of outcomes for a federally supported, 36-month initiative called the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Good Jobs Challenge. This project is funded by the Economic Development Administration (EDA) through the ARPA Good Jobs Challenge grant. Please contact Vice President, Talent & Workforce Sara Swisher at email@example.com regarding any questions and with intent to apply.
Help make a person's dream of owning a business a reality by becoming a financial counselor for the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at the Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce. Our SBDC counselors foster a strong climate for business growth by providing in-depth, confidential, no-cost business counseling, training, and resource and referral services to small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs.
