The Cayuga County Chamber of Commerce works collaboratively with our local agencies and educational institutions. By combining our resources, we believe we are stronger in our advocacy efforts. Working together we can bolster our economy and are more able to promote Cayuga County as a great place to live, work, and play.

Economic Development

The Chamber has a joint venture with the Cayuga Economic Development Agency (CEDA). This partnership creates greater alignment and collaboration on economic development activities and is one aspect of the one-stop business assistance model we aim to create at 2 State Street. In partnership with CEDA, we are able to provide more streamlined services to the business community and help businesses, as well as their local suppliers and customers, access the resources they need to be sustainable and grow into the future.

Tourism is one of the top industries in Cayuga County.  The Cayuga County Chamber of Commerce collaborates with and supports our local tourism office to offer information, events, and resources to our member restaurants and those involved in the hospitality industry.
