The Windsor Heights Chamber of Commerce and the Urbandale Chamber of Commerce announced today plans to merge operations beginning June 1.
The Urbandale Chamber of Commerce will be the lead organization powering the Windsor Heights Chamber Committee with staff and resources, a model allowing both communities to maintain their community identity and chamber presence, a news release said.
“I am excited about the opportunities this alliance will afford our collective members,” Tiffany Menke, president of the Urbandale Chamber of Commerce, said in a prepared statement. “The merger unites more than 800 businesses that will operate together in an effort to provide more for their membership base by joining forces.”
The release said the vision for the merger is to “ensure unity of the two organizations through the consolidation of resources, resulting in more value for members.”
Windsor Heights Chamber President Justin Williams said the merger will enhance the communities’ support of small, medium and large businesses.
“We are excited and look forward to working together to unite business leaders for enhanced promotion of area commerce, while still honoring both the Urbandale and Windsor Heights communities,” Williams said in a prepared statement.
The new merged organization will operate from the Urbandale Chamber of Commerce offices at 2830 100th Street, Suite 110, in Urbandale.
