Ankeny Area Chamber of Commerce


"I joined the Chamber in 2002, shortly after starting my business in Ankeny. This was one of the best investments of my advertising dollars, because my return on investment has been priceless. The M2M (Member 2 Member) program has helped to grow my business year after year, after year, through the support of my fellow members and exposure to the community as a whole. You just can't beat the Ankeny Chamber.”

“I love the Chamber because it allows me to grow my business and have fun at the same time.  I have met so many wonderful people throughout the years and am always looking for new ways to do that.  From getting involved with committees to golfing at the Chamber Golf Outing - there is always an opportunity to meet new people.

The Chamber allows me to network when the timing is right for me.  There are so many events and I can't make it to all of them but I know there is always something coming up that will fit perfectly into my schedule.  You just have to put your membership to work for you and start making new friends and connections.”

“There is a reason the Ankeny Area Chamber of Commerce is the largest chamber of commerce in Central Iowa. The strong and professional staff can explain some of its advantages. Part of it is its skilled volunteer leadership, consistently recruited and retained over the years. The Chamber’s leadership opportunities challenge our current leaders and offer support and guidance to the leaders of tomorrow. It has afforded me numerous and varied networking opportunities to meet and work with leaders from across the community. In my over ten years of involvement with the Chamber, I’ve learned these relationships are an essential building block for a successful business and the key to personal growth. In short, the Ankeny Area Chamber of Commerce hasn’t missed a step in creating a unique, highly respected organization that always strives to advance the interests of the members and community.”
