Introduction from Al DiFranco and the Mentor Area Chamber of Commerce

Hello, Chamber members and friends! My name is Al DiFranco, and I am the President and CEO of the Mentor Area Chamber of Commerce. It is my privilege to serve in this role for our more than 700 companies and organizations in Mentor and surrounding communities.

As part of my outreach efforts to our current and prospective members, I have started this blog to share some of my activities, thoughts, and plans. With the unveiling of our new website, this is a great time to take the next step in making our Chamber more interactive on the web and in social media. This blog will help take us in that positive direction.

I would also like to make this blog interactive. I hope people will feel free to comment on my posts and ask questions. Chamber membership should be all about networking and interactions to help in personal and professional growth. As Tom Cruise said in Jerry Maguire, “help me help you!” Tell me what you want to know more about right here in this blog.

As always, if you would rather talk to me on a more personal and direct level, you can reach me at 440.255.0877 or

Thanks for reading!
