The South Summit Chamber of Commerce, serving Barberton, Norton, Doylestown,
Clinton, Coventry, New Franklin and Portage Lakes, is an active chamber that
looks to advance its members’ growth and prosperity, and provide increased 
opportunities and value for its membership.  South Summit County is an
outstanding place to live, work, and grow a business. Whether you’re visiting
for the day, looking for a new place to call home, or you’re already a 
resident of our thriving community with a big heart and plenty of opportunities.
Our Chamber was established in 1926 to advocate for and support the prosperity
of the communities in our foot print area businesses. The Chamber has a 
long-standing tradition of supporting and promoting businesses of all sizes.

It is an exciting time to be a member of the South Summit Chamber of Commerce. 
We are always creating new networking and promotional opportunities to help our

referrals, networking opportunities, and continuing education. Our events that
allow our member businesses to gain visibility include the weekly morning
Business Developments groups, monthly luncheons and monthly Rush Hour 

We continue to partner with local government and other organizations to 
pursue improvements in the overall quality of life for the cities and 
townships we serve. Particularly in the areas of tourism, economic development,
community development, and workforce development. Our success in achieving
our mission and purpose is due to a collaborative effort from the Chamber
Board of Directors, City officials, Young Professionals and current Chamber
