“I have been a member of the Urbandale chamber since 2013. I joined and have been able to network on several levels with lots of diverse industries and people. I have also learned quite a bit from the tools and resources provided by the Chamber. My business has benefited in several ways since then. I have been connected to a lot of wonderful and talented people that have sharpened and enlightened me, and that is what it’s really all about. The Urbandale chamber has been a blessing not only to my business but to me personally. The Urbandale Chamber is truly awesome!”

“Let me start by saying in my 30+ years of owning a variety of businesses, I had never been a big believer or supporter of chambers. This all changed in the last year in working with Tiffany Menke and her staff at the Urbandale Chamber. Our business is new to the Des Moines market. Prior to joining the Urbandale Chamber, I interviewed several other chambers. I knew the Urbandale Chamber would be different when Tiffany personally took the time to meet with me and answered all my questions. Since joining, they have been a great partner by co-sponsoring events and helping us promote our company to other chamber members. They truly want to see our business be successful.”

“I’ve lived in Urbandale for almost 20 years. It wasn’t until recently that I became involved in the Urbandale Chamber. Little did I know, it is one of the city’s greatest assets. The seamless collaboration between the Chamber and city leadership galvanizes the community to create the most vibrant business community in the metro. The opportunity to network, share best practices, and collaborate with the top business leaders in the Des Moines area is unmatched by other organizations. Urbandale IS Central Iowa’s business chamber.”
“Determination, hard work, prayer to the good Lord for direction and with the direction of the Urbandale Chamber of Commerce, dreams do come true if one is willing to work, network and take advantage of all the opportunities the Chamber has to offer. The Urbandale Chamber has changed me and my family’s life and now I am able to make an impact on other people’s livelihood by offering and creating jobs through Big Al’s. What was just a dream has turned into more than I ever could have imagined. The Urbandale Chamber of Commerce, its members, executive staff, and Ben Buenzow believed in me before I believed in myself and for that, I am eternally grateful.”
