Letter from the Director


On behalf of the Genoa Area Chamber of Commerce, I would like to welcome you to our town. Genoa 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, Genoa is a quaint little town with a big heart and plenty of opportunities. Our rich history dates back to 1835, and the Chamber was established in 1956 to advocate for and support the prosperity of Genoa and area businesses.

It is an exciting time to be a member of the Genoa Area Chamber of Commerce. We are always creating new networking and promotional opportunities to help our member businesses succeed and grow, including space to advertise on the Chamber website, business referrals, monthly networking opportunities, and continuing education. Other great events that allow our member businesses to gain visibility include the Home and Business Expo, Annual Golf Outing, Great Genoa Duck Race, and Celebrate the Season.

We continue to partner with local government and other organizations to pursue improvements in the overall quality of life for the city, county, and region, particularly in the areas of transportation, education, healthcare, 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, Chamber Ambassadors, City of Genoa, Chamber members, and area professionals.

Our online business directory is another service the Genoa Area Chamber of Commerce provides to the local community. We continue to work with our “Explore Genoa” committee to encourage you to think local, shop local! By supporting the businesses in our directory, you are reinvesting in your community.

To our current Chamber members, thank you for your continued support. For those of you considering relocating your business or opening a new business in Genoa, you will find that becoming a Chamber member is of great value to you. Genoa is thriving, join us as we continue to grow.
