“Finding support for business owners in Greater Des Moines is easy. Each one of the local chambers brings their own specific brand of support tailored for their community, with a genuine desire to see their members succeed. The Greater Des Moines Partnership elevates that experience with complementary services most chambers wouldn’t be able to provide by themselves. I respect the work that The Partnership has done to network and support local chambers that support local businesses. Because of it, we’re a much better community in every sense of the word."

Jay Byers Headshot“Even when external circumstances are challenging, DSM USA continues to fight above its weight and position itself for long-term success, due in large part to strong regional collaboration. The Partnership is focused on helping our Affiliate Chambers and their Members grow in economic strength and agility during the recovery period ahead. Together, we are able to help our businesses stay strong and keep our communities vibrant.”
