Why Join?

Why Should YOU Belong to the Chamber?



You prosper as our area prospers.  By helping to build a thriving area, your investment is strengthened and your opportunities are broadened.


Progress and prosperity depends on the development of a sound and economic social structure.  These result from aggressive programs and activities designed to cultivate opportunities and capitalize on advantages.


These goals can be reached only by a UNITED EFFORT through an organization equipped to study and conduct a sound program of area progress.


The Iowa Great Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce is the leading organization consistently engaged in promoting the civic and economic development of our area.


Hear from our Board President, Mark Richter (The Three Sons):

"A community begins with those who believe in it. Becoming a part of the Iowa Great Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce is showing up for your community. We are blessed to live in a place with such passion and pride in our surroundings. For all here now and all those to follow, there is a fire for what “Okoboji” can become.
