There are 3 standing subcommittees of Business Advocacy/Economic Development with others created as needed. They are:

The Member Services committee focuses on all things membership. This includes acquiring new members, retaining membership, meetings and topics, events, affinity programs, and sponsorships. There are six standing subcommittees of Member Services with others created as needed. They are:
Business Development Committee – The Business Development Committee brings members together to provide support for business development and awareness campaigns. The committee members also support retention efforts through reaching out to new members, contacting those that are 6 months from renewal, and generally promoting the Chamber’s marketing messages.

WEB-C Committee – The Women Enriching Business Council is a cooperative effort among the Medina, Wadsworth and Brunswick Chambers bringing women in business together monthly to network and build business. The committee finds the locations and speakers, promotes the organization and facilitates the meetings. The monthly meetings rotate around the county so all are represented. This countywide initiative is sponsored by the Medina County Women's Journal.
EmpowHer Committee – Launched in 2013, EmpowHer has become a premier women’s event in Medina County. This female-focused professional development day is usually held in February and the committee handles planning, attaining sponsors, obtaining speakers and vendors, encouraging people to attend, and all logistics at the event.
Safety Council – Managed by the Office Manager of the Chamber, the Safety Council is a program offered to businesses that can obtain discounts on their worker’s compensation programs for attendance. Each month the Office Manager secures a speaker/program and works with the Worker’s Compensation Steering Committee to meet the needs of this group. There is no membership requirement to attend.
The Marketing Committee is responsible for creating the marketing plan, determining the messaging based on target audience, create the marketing pieces to use in sales and retention efforts, and on-going messaging and communication.
