The Regional Chamber welcomes Ohio Governor Mike DeWine as this year's keynote speaker!

Gov. Mike DeWine

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine will visit the Valley and join the Regional Chamber in honoring outstanding business leaders when he keynotes Salute To Business - his first major address in the region since taking office in January.

On November 6, 2018, DeWine was elected to serve as the 70th Governor of the State of Ohio and has had a long and distinguished career in public service, focusing on protecting Ohio children and families. He was previously the 50th Attorney General of Ohio and has served as Greene County Prosecutor, Ohio State Senator, U.S. Congressman, Ohio Lt. Governor and U.S. Senator.

Recently, Gov. DeWine signed Ohio's 2020-2021 operating budget, which included more than $3.6 million for Valley priorities comprising the Mahoning River, additive manufacturing and our military installations.


In addition to keynoting the event, Gov. DeWine will also help us honor our 2019 award recipients:
