explore the chamber

Our mission is simple: We are dedicated to advancing and developing commercial, agricultural, industrial, civic and general interests of the Village of Genoa and all adjacent communities.  We are a diverse organization of small and large business owners, professionals who promote our town as well as many activities.
 
The Genoa Chamber is an all-volunteer organization that encourages its members to get involved in all activities such as membership, special events and communications.
