What Businesses Are Saying About The Urbandale Chamber

“Shade Tree Auto joined the Urbandale chamber as a small, unknown auto shop shortly after we opened our doors 12 years ago. Despite the size of the organization, we always felt welcomed at any of the events we were able to attend. Over the years, I found out that being a chamber member to attract customers was only a fraction of the value of our membership. We were introduced to businesses and educational opportunities that helped us grow our company, and peers that motivated us to become the shop that we are today.”

“A business owner once asked me what I liked about the Urbandale Chamber, and without hesitation I told him it was the endless relationships I have acquired over the past five years. I can even call a few of those relationships really good friends now. There’s no way I can quantify how much value I have received from my membership, and I couldn’t imagine ever not being a member. With that, I will always be a member of the Urbandale Chamber.​”

The Urbandale Chamber of Commerce has been very valuable in helping us to gain information about types of available financial assistance, new rules and regulations, the most updated coronavirus information, and ways in which we can continue to improve. They have also helped us to make connections with other like-minded business owners in our area.  It is nice to know there is somebody we can contact when we have questions or are seeking information or a sounding board for ideas.

"I have been involved with other great local chambers but when I made the decision to fully dedicate my time and energy to just one chamber, it was a no brainer.

The Urbandale Chamber has always made me feel welcome no matter the event or committee. ...As I have become more involved over the last few years it has become clear that the benefits of the Urbandale Chamber are much more than the business connections I've made.

I have developed some great relationships, reconnected with people from the past and met some great leaders and supporters of the Urbandale community. The Urbandale Chamber genuinely supports its members and the community and I highly recommend it to business owners."

Networking and building connections are vital to the success of any business, and the Urbandale Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to providing just that for our members. Whether you're searching for specific connections or opportunities, don't hesitate to reach out to us - we're here to help you succeed.
