With the Hall of Fame Festival right around the corner, anticipation for summertime football, parades, concerts, hot air balloons, and fireworks is building! As much as we all want to be part of the excitement, we must keep our eyes on the goal (line) to score a (sales) touchdown. An offensive maneuver for our businesses and our Canton Chamber membership are touchpoints.


A touchpoint is directly or indirectly being seen, heard, or corresponded with by the same contact before a sale or connection is made. According to TrueList, it takes eight cold calls on average to reach a prospect; therefore, making repeated and numerous touchpoints with the same contact will enable you to be first in mind when a referral is required or to convert the contact to a customer or client.

Hubspot also suggests that eight touchpoints is the “magic” number to make a successful sale. While it is almost impossible to know the number of times you’ve made a touchpoint with someone, the effort to make consistent touchpoints is what matters most.


A touchpoint can be anything from your company’s logo being seen on promotional materials, to a social media post being reacted to, an email from you being read, a conversation at a networking event, a promotion in a newsletter, a catch-up over a cup of coffee or lunch, volunteering on a committee or at an event.

What Opportunities Does the Chamber Provide for Touchpoints?

The Canton Chamber provides its members with a plethora of ways to make touchpoints, such as the following:

• Become a committee member to help plan and organize or volunteer at AultCare QuickConnect Luncheons, the Business Expo, Business After Hours, ystark! events, Vintage Canton, Light Up Downtown, the HOF Enshrinement Festival, or the HOF Parade. Contact a CRCC Ambassador or the CRCC event coordinator to find out how you can become a committee member or volunteer at an event.

• Attending events such as Business After Hours, Stark Forums, YP Meetups, Tip Clubs, Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies, and QuickConnect Luncheons to network and catch up with other chamber members.

• Sponsorship oppor tunities at events - have your company logo seen by attendees

• Member Directory - for a nominal fee, your company’s logo can be added to the member directory. (The public and other members can contact you through the directory.)

• Being tagged on social media by the Canton Chamber or another chamber member

Your Chamber membership provides you with ample opportunities to create touchpoints each month of the year. With each touchpoint you make, you gain yardage toward crossing the goal line, making that touchdown, and celebrating with a little end zone dance (we all do, right?!).

Summer Interns & Employer Benefits

Hiring student interns brings considerable value to organizations that choose to invest in young talent and can be a win-win situation for employers AND students. Employing interns allows organizations to tap into a pool of fresh perspectives and innovative ideas. Their enthusiasm, technical capabilities and creative thinking can help companies stay agile, adapt to evolving trends, and find fresh solutions to complex problems.

Secondly, interns offer employers an opportunity to identify and nurture future talent. By providing these young individuals with a glimpse into the professional world, organizations can assess their potential and determine if they align with the company’s values and goals. Investing in students early can lead to long-term relationships, preparing them for future roles within the organization.

Internships also enable employers to enhance their corporate social responsibility initiatives. By offering internships, companies demonstrate their commitment to investing in the next generation and supporting local communities. This involvement can boost brand reputation and attract top talent, as socially conscious individuals are more likely to be drawn to organizations that prioritize youth development.

Moreover, hiring interns fosters a culture of mentorship and knowledge sharing

within an organization. Seasoned professionals have the opportunity to guide and mentor young minds, passing on their expertise and industry insights. This exchange of knowledge not only benefits the intern but also rejuvenates the experienced employees, fostering a dynamic and collaborative work environment.

Lastly, Internships can help organizations address short-term staffing needs and project requirements. Interns can contribute meaningfully to specific tasks and projects, allowing regular employees to focus on more strategic initiatives.

In conclusion, internships bring considerable advantages to employers. By leveraging the fresh perspectives, nurturing future talent, enhancing corporate social responsibility, fostering mentorship, and addressing staffing needs, organizations can experience tremendous growth and development.

We encourage employers to consider offering high school and/or college student internships as a strategic investment in your organization’s future success. By providing opportunities for young individuals to learn and contribute, you not only enrich their lives but also position your company for continued growth and innovation.


We need willing businesses interested in the opportunity to hire and mentor summer high school interns who will be paid through the Stark County Community Action Agency/Ohio Means Jobs youth program. The interests of the students cover general business, health sciences, marketing, fine arts, law, engineering and other professions that eventually require higher education degrees. This is a great way to help unleash potential of our local youth and market your firm to a future workforce network.

How would you like to stay connected to the business world without being immersed in it?

Have you retired or reached a point in your career when you are contemplating retirement? And perhaps would like to keep ties to the business community without all the responsibilities and stresses that accompany careers in business? If in pondering those questions you think ‘Yes’ is an answer, you might want to consider becoming a mentor with SCORE.

Nationwide, the 230 chapters of SCORE welcome seasoned business veterans to its ranks of mentors/counselors. That’s certainly true of the Canton Regional Chapter that serves small businesses and non-profits in Stark, Holmes, Tuscawaras, Carrol and Harrison counties.

What is it about SCORE that its mentors enjoy and value? Several reasons are often cited.

• Mentoring/counseling enables retaining a connection to the business world without its being all-encompassing.

• Mentors enjoy seeing the light shine more brightly in a client’s eyes when he/she sees more clearly the path to success.

• Mentors enjoy giving back to the community at large.

• Mentoring/counseling provides opportunities for continuous learning.

• Mentors enjoy camaraderie with other seasoned business people.

Often mentors/counselors receive a bonus -expressions of gratitude from SCORE clients. Here are two such expressions from current SCORE clients.

“Since my first meeting with SCORE members, they have guided me with great advice in advertising, how to handle difficult employee situations and sensitive customer interactions which has led my customer base to continuously grow. I appreciate all they have put into working with me while I started my business, and I can never thank them enough for all their help. The mentors take time when you need them for help

and guidance. They are right by your side when needed most.” Roger Griffith, Sparky’s Welding & Fabrication LLC.

“From the moment I met my SCORE mentor, it was evident that I had found someone genuinely passionate about authors like myself. The thought of writing a book can be overwhelming, but my mentor’s expertise and deep understanding of the writing process has given me the confidence to know that I can accomplish my goal of writing a book. SCORE has been a very valuable resource.” Erick Parker, senior business consultant, Global Business Consultants.

SCORE counseling is confidential unless a client approves of being publicly recognized. Messrs. Griffith and Parker gave their approval to being quoted publicly.

SCORE is a 501-c-3 non-profit organization. Its services are cost-free, and all SCORE members are volunteers.

Join us for the second event in a transformative four-part Stark Forum Series addressing the most pressing issues affecting the health and well-being of our business communities. On Thursday, June 22, Dr. Anju Mader, Chief Integration Officer for the Behavioral Health Access and Integration Collaborative, will present the latest data on the eight social drivers of health and draw conclusions on steps for businesses to better attract and retain talent.

As a community leader, you have a unique opportunity to drive change, create a healthier workforce, and ultimately realize a positive return on investment for your business.

With social drivers accounting for 50% of overall health, it’s more important than ever to take action. Join us to learn how your business or workplace can collaborate and innovate to create a healthier, more resilient workforce and community. Stephanie Werren, Vice President for Leadership Programs at the Canton Regional Chamber, will guide engage-

ment throughout the forum to further explore the connection between the data presented by Dr. Mader, Chief Integration Officer at Stark County Mental Health and Addiction Recovery, and actionable insights for businesses.

In the current work landscape, it’s crucial to adopt a new approach towards supporting workforce mental health that acknowledges it as both a moral obligation and a fundamental tactic for sustaining an employer’s most valuable resource -their employees.

The Behavioral Health Access and Integration Collaborative is a coordinated county wide initiative that aims to address the socioeconomic and physical barriers to behavioral health access, and creates and implements targeted interventions to increase access entry points. The Collaborative is led by Dr. Anju Mader (Chief Integration Officer), whose position is funded by Aultman Health Foundation, the Stark County Educational Service Center, and Stark County Mental Health and Addiction Recovery. It has an advisory commit-

tee whose membership represents the three funders, public health, a commercial healthcare payer, a local foundation, the local children’s hospital, and local behavioral health providers. Stark Mental Health and Addiction Recovery serves as its administrative and fiscal agent.

Equip yourself locally with resources and prevention strategies to make your workplace safer

Thousands of Ohio employers benefit from education, resource sharing, and premium savings* while actively participating in their local safety council. And you can join them.

In a BWC Safety Council you will:

• Learn techniques for increasing safety, health, and wellness in your workplace.

• Network and share best practices with other employers in your community.

• Identify resources to assist your accident prevention efforts.

• Access risk management information and strategies to reduce your worker’s compensation costs.

To earn a 3% safety council rebate on your workers’ compensation premium, meet rebate eligibility requirements in one of Ohio’s more than 80 BWCsponsored safety councils.

Participation is simple.

• Join or update your existing, active membership with the Stark County Safety Council by July 31, 2023.

• Attend 10 in-person safety council meetings between July 1, 2023 – June 30, 2024.

o At least eight, or all 10, through attendance at local safety council sponsored monthly meetings, seminars, or special events.

o You can earn external training credit for up to two meetings through attendance at BWC-sponsored in-person or virtual training courses or in-person safety training from other external sources (e.g. industry associations, third party administrators, etc.). It is the employer’s responsibility to submit documentation to their safety council by June 30, 2024 for attendance at non-safety council safety training to qualify. Documentation must be an official certificate of attendance.

Additional safety council rebate eligibility guidelines:

• A person can represent only one policy number with their attendance at a safety council meeting or external training event.

• Safety council monthly meetings do not qualify for meeting credit for any employer not enrolled in that safety council.

• No matter the duration of the training, seminar, or conference, or how many employees participate, only one external training credit is earned per event.

• Safety training conducted at an employer’s workplace does not qualify for safety council rebate program eligibility.

• Virtual/online training does not qualify for safety council rebate program eligibility except BWC virtual training classes.

*The rebate offer excludes self-insuring employers and state agencies. Limitations apply to professional/ alternate employer organizations and their clients.

To receive the rebate, not to exceed $5,000 annually, employers’ policies must be current with respect to all payments due to BWC. Employers may not have cumulative lapses in workers’ compensation coverage in excess of 40 days within the prior 12 months. Additionally, employers must have timely reported actual payroll for the preceding policy year and pay any premium due upon reconciliation of estimated premium and actual premium.

Solar and Energy Consultation.

Why Go Solar? For years solar was too expensive, a technology of the future, or took too long for return on investment. All of those statements were true at one time or another but not any longer. Solar is affordable and the average business owners pays their system off in 3-5 years. Once a solar system is paid off, our customers save on average $30,000 a year! Residential customers typically save money and build equity in their homes day 1. Once your homes solar system is paid off, our customers save on average $3,000 a year! So why go solar? Why not?

The idea and heart behind this mental health organization sprouted from our own journey as a family that experienced, hardship, substance abuse, and infidelity. As we healed as a couple and grew as a family we knew we wanted to help others achieve wholeness in their lives. We understand this journey looks a little different for everyone. So we wanted to bring a new approach to mental health in Stark County. We will continue to grow and offer different services that will help each individual feel better in mind, body and soul.

Communication is key, and sharing information is as important as listening. I will make sure you know what’s happening with your mortgage as it progresses through the process and will be available to answer your questions. I’ll be with you every step of the way, from application to closing and beyond.

Whether you are buying, refinancing, or renovating, I am ready to give you the outstanding home loan experience you deserve.

Gervasi Vineyard Resort & Spa partnered with TourismOhio, and joined more than 120 other attractions and destinations from across the state for the 2023 Ohio Tourism Day, held May 10 at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus. Hundreds of people, looking to make summer plans, attended the event.

To kick off the day, Gov. DeWine unveiled Ohio’s new brand: “Ohio, The Heart of it All.” The beloved theme with a modern twist captures the state’s Midwestern warmth and invites people to create a life they love here in Ohio.

Additionally, Gervasi Vineyard is proud to announce they have expanded their Musica Summer Concert Series to include a total of sixteen performances in their outdoor Pavilion.

Seating and layouts for each performance vary. Most of the concerts and performances will feature theatre style seating with a premium seating section and general seating section. A dance floor will also be available for the theatre style seating performances. Other concerts will include the traditional table style seating and include a dessert of small bite trio.

All performances will include a cash bar. Guests are encouraged to visit a Gervasi Vineyard outlet before each performance to experience exceptional cuisine before the show.

Jim Trotter, who has covered the NFL since the mid-1990s and recently joined The Athletic as a national columnist, has been selected as the 2023 Bill Nunn Memorial Award winner by the Professional Football Writers of America (PFWA).

The Nunn Award is given to a reporter who has made a long and distinguished contribution to pro football through coverage. The award is named for Nunn, who prior to his Hall of Fame scouting career with the Pittsburgh Steelers worked for 22 years at the Pittsburgh Courier, one of the most influential Black publications in the United States.

Olde Wood, Ltd., is proud to announce the launch of their new plywood manufacturing company, Re-Core. Specializing in producing high-quality, American made plywood.

During the pandemic, American distributors stopped selling plywood to anyone but their largest customers. Even orders from overseas were stranded in shipping containers with no end in sight.

So, Tommy Sancic, Owner and Founder of Olde Wood put a plan into motion to

create an American made core plywood product. A revolutionary idea that will change an entire industry.

Specialty equipment was designed and installed at the Magnolia facility that will produce 1 panel of plywood every 18 seconds which means that our processes are now fully controlled with no reliance on foreign made materials. This innovative, European inspired, manufacturing line is only the second of its kind in the United States and the first here in Ohio.

At the time of his retirement, Jim Brown held a total of 15 individual career and single season NFL records, along with nine rushing titles for his career.
