How Does a Business Join Your Chamber?
The easiest way to join us is through our website!
What Inspired You to First Get Involved with Your Chamber?
I got involved in the chamber to have an impact on moving our community forward.
What is a Signature Offering of Your Chamber?
We love working together with the City of Windsor Heights and the Windsor Heights Foundation on events that bring our community together, such as our 4th of July parade, Movies in the Park, and Nights in the Heights. While the parade has been postponed this year, we hope to still host movie nights when it’s safe to gather.
What is Your Chamber’s Biggest Accomplishment in the Past 12 Months?
We realigned our strategy for growth and financial success and positioned ourselves to be a stronger asset for our members.
What Initiative/Project Are You Looking Forward to in the Upcoming Year?
The reconstruction of University Avenue is underway, so we look forward to celebrating our new main street and town center!
What Partnership Tools/Resources Have Been Most Beneficial to Your Chamber Members?
Since we are a small chamber, we encourage our members to take advantage of all the business trainings provided by the Greater Des Moines Partnership. In the past few months especially, the swift and clear communication from The Partnership staff has been a great support to our businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.
What Are Your Upcoming Events?
In the short term we have moved our networking events online. But we’re looking forward to the Mid-Metro Chamber Open in collaboration with the DSM West Side Chamber on Thursday, August 6! We’re making adjustments to ensure everyone’s safety, but can’t wait to connect in person.
The Greater Des Moines Partnership is the fourth largest regional Chamber of Commerce in the nation. Learn more about Partnership Affiliate Chambers, browse the Membership Directory and read additional Affiliate Chamber spotlights.
