Why Do We Do What We Do?
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.”
Owner, Shade Tree Auto
“The Urbandale Chamber is a powerful platform for ambitious business professionals. At the beginning of my business venture and investment here, I felt very inspired at what the future could hold from this relationship, now, every single month I find myself drawing closer to reaching new heights of American history due in part to the remarkable advantages the Urbandale Chamber offers, I encourage all thriving businesses to join.”

“Becoming a member of the Urbandale Chamber has been such a benefit to me as a small business owner. It’s been an excellent way to get my name in front of new customers, and the vast network of other members have been so supportive of my business. I’m able to connect my Chamber membership with revenue dollars that come in each month, so for me, being a part of the Chamber is a no-brainer!”

That being said, one of our core values is our place in the community. The Urbandale Chamber of Commerce helps our local employee owners make a difference in the places we work and live.”

Pro Tip of the Month
Check out the advice our expert members have to offer.
One of the hardest tasks when building a new website is deciding what to cut from the old one. It’s easy to lose sight of the content we want to share vs. the content our customers want to see. A good rule of thumb is if the information doesn’t help your visitors survive or thrive, and doesn’t help you obtain your marketing objectives, it’s got to go. For example, most users don’t want to—and aren’t going to—read four paragraphs about the history of your company. In a few words, you can concisely confirm what they really want to know: that they’re not your first customer and that you know what you’re doing!Mandi Hunter
