The Ellwood City Area Chamber of Commerce has several committees made up of volunteer members who work with each other to provide valuable services and support to the Chamber membership, the community and our local economy. All Chamber and Community members are welcome to participate on committee projects. Please contact the Chamber at 724-758-5501 or firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.

Marketing & Membership Committee: Promotes awareness of the many local benefits of Ellwood City and the surrounding area to potential residents, visitors and businesses.
