The Des Moines Downtown Chamber’s mission is to Create Connections that Count! It is a privilege to “connect” with you weekly on what is happening within the chamber and the variety of events and memories being created daily in our community.
The Des Moines Downtown Chamber celebrates its fourth year as an established chamber, and we couldn’t be more excited to serve and represent nearly 150 local businesses. Our membership is a talented core of leaders. Whether they are leading a small business, start-up, nonprofit, or an international corporation, they contribute in different and substantial ways that make this chamber and our community outstanding.
A recent member survey asked participants to describe the Downtown Chamber in 3 words. Words like, “vibrant,” “energetic,”, and “fun” were in abundance. With those labels firmly attached and a membership that matches that same description, the Downtown Chamber seeks to offer our membership events and resources that serve our modern age of business. The in-person coffees continue to reign, and are highlighted by interesting downtown locations – such as a rooftop with the downtown skyline as a backdrop, backstage at a theatre, or inside a local dive with a one-of-a-kind ambience. The Chamber also connects virtually with members through a monthly Tweet-up, Facebook, a website blog, and a weekly e-newsletter that hits over 600 subscribers.
In September, the Downtown Chamber presents its first ever, Culture Connection Crawl. The event connects the three business districts downtown into one amazing night of experiences, tastes, and new knowledge of the little things that make Downtown so distinctive. Watch for more information about this one of a kind event taking place, September 13th.
