With regret and deep sadness I share the news of the passing of Elizabeth "Lizz" Studebaker. The Chamber recognized Lizz in 2001 with our highest honor, the F.M. Torrence Award, which is our lifetime achievement award for promoting the business, cultural, educational, religious and civic life in the Xenia community. Please keep your thoughts and prayers with Lizz's family.

Each year Ohio employers have the opportunity to participate in BWC’s Group-Experience-Rating Program or Group-Retrospective-Rating Program. While these programs are not required, they do provide you with an opportunity to significantly reduce your workers’ compensation premiums, while increasing your awareness of safety and risk-management strategies.

The downtown Xenia event is held the First Friday of each month from 5-9pm, May-September and boasts an array of street performers, featured entertainment, quality vendors, delicious food, and promotional sales from area businesses.
