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.”

“The Urbandale Chamber is one of the most vibrant, robust, business support organizations I have been a part of. For a small annual membership, you have the opportunity to attend a full calendar of events to network, learn and advance your business. There are multiple ways to get involved and meet people under the Chamber umbrella. Stick around for a while and you are sure to see both personal and professional growth!”

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.
