Our goal is to exchange and promote business with members and support member businesses through information sharing and education, encouraging and sustaining entrepreneurship in Ashtabula County.

Mission Statement

To exchange and promote business with members and support member businesses through information sharing. To support secondary business education in Ashtabula County encouraging and sustaining entrepreneurship.

The purposes of the Ashtabula County Business Exchange (known as AcBE) are:

  1. To establish relationships with other business people who become members of the Organization by educating them about the product, service or profession each of us exclusively represents. Relationships generate word-of-mouth advertising and exchanges which offer the opportunity to do business with others who are in the market for our product or service.

  2. Promote secondary business education in the county through scholarships, mentorship programs, and information sharing.

In light of the current Coronavirus-19 situation, our regularly scheduled meetings are being postponed until further notice. 

Stay in touch and stay healthy.




        We hope to see our members on Thursday mornings                             for a short virtual meeting.

About Us

We are an organization of local business owners who network together to promote business and exchange client contacts and member services. If a need arises for services that our members can provide, we hope you will consider conducting business with the "member" professionals listed.

Only one business is represented per business category. It is this exclusivity that provides the foundation of the group and the business leads generated by our members that give our organization its strength. If you are interested in joining this outstanding business organization and filling an open category that is not currently represented, contact any member listed to see if you qualify.

Great way to start Thursdays!


"AcBE provides the opportunity for members to get to know each other both personally and professionally. It provides a great network of resources for each member to refer clients and contacts to with confidence. AcBE is so much more than a networking group, we are like a family."

-Debbie Powell of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Professional Realty
