Chamber Member Testimonials:

“NOVA has been an active member of the Beaver County Chamber of Commerce (BCCC) since 1977 ‘because we believe in active community leadership and investing in the future of the communities where we operate. The BCCC provides NOVA the opportunity to meet regularly with legislators, business, community and education leaders to raise our praise and concerns on issues important to sustaining our business in Beaver County.  NOVA Chemicals is focused on plastics and chemicals that make everyday life safer, healthier and easier.  NOVA and our predecessor companies have continuously operated the Potter Township manufacturing site since 1942 when the site was built by the US government as a synthetic rubber plant. Today we are one of North America’s leading producers of expandable polystyrene resin used in energy efficient insulation for buildings, protective packaging, and servicing the global foam cup and container marketplace.’ ”

“Our membership in the Beaver County Chamber of Commerce has been positive and profitable, professionally and personally. They clearly understand that, while connecting local businesses is important, the key to stimulating the area’s economy is to connect the people who build those businesses. This is evidenced by the way that they structure their networking events, which I always enjoy.

Besides being fun, these gatherings attract a seemingly endless infusion of talented, like-minded professionals who have great visions for the region’s future, and are committed to turning them into reality. This makes it very easy to adhere to my policy of doing as much business as possible with Chamber members; and it’s even more rewarding when the business relationships blossom into friendships, as often happens. I also like that the Chamber consistently honors and recognizes outstanding business people in their accomplishments and contributions to the community.

On top of everything, I love having access to ChamberChoice, which helps to provide great health benefits to our employees. To me, their offering of these packages, along with everything else that they do for area businesses, shows that they’re genuinely invested – and confident – in the future of Beaver County.”
