What Can The Chamber Do For Me?

The Lancaster Area Chamber of Commerce (LACC) is a not for profit business organization supported by members for members. The LACC is not supported through taxes or governmental support.  The Lancaster Area Chamber of Commerce connects hundreds of businesses from the Depew, Lancaster, Elma and surrounding Western New York area.  Together and through continuous community engagement we are creating opportunities for partnerships and growth.


We have found being part of the Lancaster Area Chamber of Commerce has been a very rewarding experience both for self-development and as a business in the community! I personally have made it a point to attend as many of the functions as possible due to the amazing amount of business I have developed as a result. On a personal note I have made many new friends and have found that I can do business with many of them! I would encourage anyone doing business in the area to take a good look at the LACC!!

The Bonadio Group has found that being a sponsor of the Lancaster Area Chamber of Commerce has been very beneficial over the last few years. The various networking events have always been enjoyable to attend and very well run. The management team at the Chamber is always open to suggestions on what can be done to improve any event. I find the Lancaster Chamber of Commerce is a great way to meet with local business professionals and by sponsoring events to increase name recognition within the community. I have made many connections through their events. I have enjoyed my time as a Chamber member and look forward to being involved with their continued success.

Being a sponsor for the Lancaster Area Chamber of Commerce has helped Bank of Akron connect with our neighbors and businesses in our local community. It is a win-win situation to be able to support the Chamber and like-minded professionals who want to see their businesses and community grow and flourish. The combination of events and business-related seminars provide great networking possibilities and business opportunities.
