History of the Gahanna Area Chamber

The 2017 Rising Star award was presented to La Navona.

The Gahanna Area Chamber of Commerce was originally formed in 1981 for the primary purpose of assisting in the unification of the Gahanna business community, and to encourage the residents of Gahanna to do their shopping locally thereby patronizing the chamber members. The chamber’s formation was also prompted by an expressed need for a local, viable organization to contact for information regarding the Gahanna business community — and the chamber is fulfilling this need.
