The Trotwood Chamber of Commerce welcomes you to our community. The Chamber was formed in 1979 when a group of business leaders felt the need to have an organization that would help nurture the businesses in Trotwood so they created the Trotwood-Madison Chamber of Commerce. In 1996 when the City merged with Madison Township, the board of directors determined the organization's name should be changed to Trotwood Chamber of Commerce.

The Chamber strives to be a positive voice for the community and sponsor many events to enhance the business experience and educate business owners, as well as the community. We are members of the Southern Ohio Chamber Alliance, Ohio Chambers, Miami Valley Military Affairs, and other organizations.

The Chamber publishes a monthly newsletter and a different member is profiled in our newsletter every month. We also focus on new members and encourage them to write an article to be included in the newsletter. The Chamber is working with the City of Trotwood for the economic growth of our City and community. We focus on retaining members and recruiting new members... we are available to serve you! Should you have questions, please call the Chamber at 937.837.1484 or email mbattle@trotwoodchamber.org., we will return your call within 24 hours.

President's Message

Dear Chamber Members and Community,

Jim Pierce, President, Trotwood Chamber of CommerceWith all of the major accomplishments in the greater Trotwood community in 2017 and all of what we know is coming in 2018, we are clearly in a new era of prosperity and greatness for one of the biggest and most important municipalities in Montgomery County. With many small and large businesses and companies expanding and relocating to the Trotwood community, and several more Fortune 1000 companies working to develop projects in the community, it is indeed an exciting time for the growth and redevelopment of Trotwood. Facilitating all of this, the Trotwood Community Improvement Corporation (CIC), in cooperation with the Mayor and City Manager, have worked hard to attract new industrial, commercial, retail and residential development throughout the community. It is particularly exciting that all of the CIC sponsored residential investment is serving to greatly stabilize and enhance our single family housing and neighborhoods. Montgomery County, the Dayton Regional Development Coalition and the State of Ohio are all taking notice of the City’s progress and are being asked to step up to more rapidly advance some of the biggest projects with wide-ranging job, tax base and other spin-off economic benefits.

As with all businesses and organizations, the Trotwood Chamber of Commerce is continually evolving to align itself with all of the great things the City and CIC are doing on behalf of the community and to maximize all of the beneficial programs, services and events we do for our members and the community as a whole.

The Trotwood Board of Directors consists of active, passionate members who represent non-profit community organizations, large corporate businesses, small local businesses, government, and education. The vision, energy and diversity of our board makes us stronger and better able to facilitate the positive direction of our organization. The leadership of our board, working in conjunction with our outstanding Executive Director Marie Battle, is fully and thoroughly committed to doing everything we can to expand our local and regional influence and to help our businesses with their growth, development and profitability.

We hope you will attend some or all of our great events and programs in 2018, including several before- and after-hours networking events, our Business, Community and Job Expo, our fantastic fall Golf Classic, our beautiful Annual Awards Dinner recognizing our great businesses, a community celebration of the arts with the Dayton Contemporary Dance Company and many other outreach and business growth opportunities that will be announced and publicized throughout the year. These events offer wonderful opportunities to get to know other community leaders and to create partnerships and specific chances to grow your business. New customers and more business is always a great thing for everybody. Promote your business by allowing the Chamber to bring all of its members, resources and attention to your destination; in every way we can this will be a year to shop, do our business, facilitate more job opportunities, educate our kids, and recreate within our great City of Trotwood!  2018 will be an extraordinary and prosperous year of development and redevelopment, as Trotwood supports and promotes Trotwood as a community of choice for all high quality economic, business and community investment.

I am honored to be your President of a terrific Board of Directors, superbly supported by an outstanding Executive Director, with the best group of members enjoyed by any Chamber in the Miami Valley. If you are ever so motivated, we always have a seat at the table for you to join our leadership effort to help drive the Chamber and the community forwarded in a positive and progressive manner. Contact me at any time to offer your service, ideas or recommendations to enhance the Trotwood business environment. Our welcome mat is always out for movers and shakers who can help us further elevate the Chamber and the community at the forefront of a prosperous new era of Trotwood excellence! Just as our Trotwood Rams High School Football Team once again showed their brilliance as the best team in the State of Ohio, the Trotwood community and Chamber is committed to do the same with its business environment as a unique place for all businesses large and small, corporate and locally owned to achieve great financial success.
