Coffee & Commerce

The monthly Energy Coalition is now Coffee and Commerce! The new name allows us to provide a broad range of topics that impact our business members. We will continue to have presentations relating to the gas & oil industry as appropriate, but now we will deliver pertinent information and trends that touch a variety of issues in the business community. For example… have you wondered how the proposed legalization of medical marijuana will impact your business?

Join in on these informational meetings held on the first Thursday of each month at the Southgate Hotel in Cambridge at 8 a.m.

Adult Leadership Application

ADULT LEADERSHIP – A learning program for emerging and potential leaders in Guernsey County. Its purpose is to improve participants’ leadership skills and provide examination of the workings of the community.

YOUTH LEADERSHIP – Designed for students who display a desire to develop leadership and team building skills, as well as community awareness. School administration selects 5 high school juniors from Cambridge, John Glenn, Meadowbrook, and Buckeye Trail High Schools to participate in Youth Leadership Guernsey. This program is 100% funded by Quanex.

The Cambridge Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the introduction of a program for young adults between 21 and 40 years old.  Young Leaders of Guernsey County is a community of young adults that builds relationships, improves the quality of life for young professionals, and gives a voice to young leaders in our community and in our businesses and for our future!  Membership in the group is open to Chamber of Commerce members and non-members.  Young Leaders members must live or work in Guernsey County.
The Young Leaders program is meant to inspire an up-and-coming generation of leaders to step into leadership roles in our community.  As leaders in key positions “age out” of their roles, these Young Leaders will be better prepared to take on the responsibilities.

Visit the Young Leaders page to learn more about the program and to see what events are taking place.
