CEA Welcomes New Member Ohio Chamber of Commerce

CHICAGO Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA) is pleased to welcome the Ohio Chamber of Commerce as its newest affiliate member.

With 6,000 members ranging from small town businesses to international corporations, the Ohio Chamber of Commerce represents Ohio’s business voice. Founded in 1893, the Ohio Chamber is one of the state’s oldest business organizations. The Ohio Chamber is led by a volunteer board of directors that consists of 66 business leaders from all over the state.  With a staff of 20 people including lobbyists, political experts, membership specialists and knowledgeable support staff, the Ohio Chamber promotes a pro-business agenda with Ohio’s elected officials and provides services that help members run their businesses.

“The Ohio Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce its new partnership with CEA.  Energy policy greatly affects our entire membership and we believe it is essential that energy policy remains at the forefront of the discussion by our elected officials.  By joining CEA, the Chamber will leverage CEA’s knowledge of national energy issues,” said Jennifer Klein, Director of Energy and Environment for the Ohio Chamber.

“Consumer Energy Alliance is pleased to work closely with the Ohio Chamber of Commerce on energy issues at a state, regional and national level,” said CEA Midwest Executive Director Ryan Scott. “The primary goal of CEA is to unite energy consumers and producers in an effort to build a pragmatic energy policy.  The Ohio Chamber accomplishes this by bringing together its member organizations and pursuing energy legislation that will benefit all consumers.  CEA looks forward to working closely with the Ohio Chamber to provide its membership with credible energy information and to learn first-hand the concerns that their members have about federal and state energy policies.  In an unpredictable business climate, energy policy that creates certainty for businesses and consumers while providing reliable and affordable energy is more important than ever.  CEA Midwest is very pleased to welcome the Ohio Chamber of Commerce in promoting such policies.”
