The Waukee Area Chamber of Commerce: An association of businesses, organizations and individuals dedicated to promoting growth and prosperity in our local economy.
It is already June. Just checking on how many of you are getting involved? Use your strengths on one of the Chamber’s six committees: Membership, Ambassadors, Community Development, Government Affairs, Economic Development and Scholarship. New ideas are always helpful in making this Chamber beneficial and enjoyable to you and your business.
Melinda, Sara and I had a wonderful trip to D.C., representing the Waukee Area Chamber of Commerce. I met so many people from across the metro and got to know City Councilman Mike Watts and our new City Administrator Tim Moerman better. The trip was May 8 – 10, and 190 of central Iowa’s business, civic and community leaders were in attendance. The itinerary underscored a range of advocacy, educational and networking opportunities for all involved. The trip was a great experience and one that I am glad the Waukee Chamber takes part in every year.
The Waukee Area Chamber of Commerce has a great summer planned with networking and sponsorship opportunities including the Waukee Chamber Golf Outing (June 20) and upcoming events including Home Instead Senior Care’s 10 year anniversary July 11, Chamber Networking Luncheon July 16, Cow Patty Business Bingo July 18 and Terry Snyder Photography 20 year anniversary July 26.
Thanks to all of our business sponsors and participants for their involvement in the Waukee Chamber Golf Outing held at the Beaver Creek Golf Course on Thursday, June 20.
The golf outing is the Chamber’s second largest fundraiser of the year. The outing provides many sponsorship opportunities to get your business noticed including tee sign sponsors, beverage and cart sign sponsors and more.
