Columbus, OH – On Tuesday, May 2, The Ohio Chamber’s Chamber Action Alliance (CAA) awarded the Medina Area Chamber of Commerce the 2017 Leadership in Grassroots Advocacy Award for its commitment to legislative advocacy and leadership in grassroots efforts.

The CAA is the statewide grassroots advocacy coalition of Ohio chambers of commerce coordinated by the Ohio Chamber. The CAA determines statewide policy issues facing the business community, educates and empowers pro-businesses advocates to take action, and champions a business-friendly climate throughout the state of Ohio. Every year the CAA selects one local chamber that exemplifies the purpose of the CAA and awards the Leadership in Grassroots Advocacy Award to recognize a local chamber’s hard work and service to local and statewide communities.
“Every year, the Greater Medina Area Chamber of Commerce is a leading advocate for Ohio’s job creators,” said the Ohio Chamber’s Director of Political Programs Rich Thompson. “This year they received our award because they hosted candidate’s forums, educated their members on pending business legislation, and became active in the ballot initiative process. The chamber is a true asset to Medina, and the Ohio Chamber and CAA are both lucky to regularly work with Jaclyn Ringstmeier and her chamber.”

Senate President Larry Obhof, Representative Steve Hambley, and Representative Darrell Kick presented commendations to honor the Greater Medina Chamber of Commerce for its efforts and winning the Leadership in Grassroots Advocacy Award.

The Ohio Chamber of Commerce is a champion for Ohio businesses so that our state enjoys economic growth and prosperity. With over 8,000 members, we have been Ohio’s premiere business advocate since 1893.
