The Willoughby Western Lake County Chamber of Commerce supports our manufacturers through the  Trade Promotion Authority legislation.  Every $1 billion in exports of U.S. goods and services supports more than 5,000 U.S. jobs, and exports of U.S. goods and services supported an estimated 9.8 million American jobs, including 25% of all manufacturing jobs.   Export-supported jobs pay 13% to 18% higher than the national average wage.  The way to support more of these high-paying jobs is to expand trade and investment opportunities.   That is why the Chamber supports TPA.

In an effort to show recognition and gratitude for the service given by the men and women of our armed forces, past and present, all four of the Lake County Chambers are launching a Lake County wide program to provide a special benefit to our veterans with the support of our Chamber members. The Lake County Chambers still need more Chamber members to commit to offering a discount to our Veterans! The Lake County VetsNet program will highlight businesses willing to provide a 10% or comparable discount for goods and services they offer to Veterans that hold a County issued ID card and those that are members of the VFW, American Legion, AmVets and active or reserve armed forces. Each business will receive a decal to display on their door and ample publicity.

 

Partnering with the Lake County Chambers in the VetsNet effort is the office of Lake County Recorder, Ann Radcliffe.  Radcliffe’s office, located in the Lake County Administration Building, began providing new ID cards to Lake County veterans in January 2014.  As a component of this new partnership, the Recorder’s office will promote the listing of Lake County VetsNet participating Chamber members to those obtaining ID cards. Our Chamber’s participating members (and their offers) will be listed here.
