Community Organizations

Madison County has many great business associations and community organizations.

These groups offer the opportunity to build your network, learn and be a part of the business and local communities within the county. 

While some, like the Health Care Providers Association and the HR Forum, are industry specific, others including Safety Council, Plain City Business Association, Downtown London Association, London Community Organization, Uptown Plain City Organization and the West Jeff Community Organization discuss a wide variety of topics across many different industries. 

Members of the community organizations have the opportunity to get to know the community they are living and working in and often times work to plan festivals and events and help to make the community a better place to live and do business. 

It doesn't matter what organization you choose. Just get involved!
