Ep 031 - Helping Businesses Save Money & Grow - with Cindy Holzheimer of NOACC
Cindy Holzheimer has been the President/CEO of the Northern Ohio Area Chambers of Commerce for almost two years. She was the Executive Director of the Beachwood Chamber of Commerce for 5 years before that. She has a true passion for chambers of commerce and works to provide high quality cost saving benefits to chambers as well as leadership training and support for chamber leaders.
NOACC was started in 1995 by three chambers that had secured a discount on medical insurance through Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield and wanted to make this savings available for more chambers in the area to be able to offer to their members. After bringing in a few additional vendors, NOACC was born and is one of the largest chamber associations in the country.
NOACC has positioned itself as an authority in high-quality cost-savings programs that are only available through the chambers that belong to our organization. We also keep our chambers connected with each other to provide assistance and resources that all chambers desire to grow their organizations.
Cindy's Top Tips:
Join your local chamber and not only join, get involved, get your moneys worth. Network with folks, take advantage of the cost savings programs, join a committee if you can, have your company sponsor an event to gain exposure. At the end of that first year, you want to be able to say that you got out of the chamber what you put into it.
