In an effort to serve their members even better, the East and South Des Moines Chambers of Commerce have forged a new strategic alliance essentially giving their current members and prospective members the benefit of two memberships for the price of one!  

The Boards of Directors of the East and South Des Moines Chambers have been working on a long-term strategy to benefit the futures of the organizations, their respective communities and their businesses.  While each Chamber felt passionately about maintaining community identity in promoting their business members and their neighborhoods, they were just as passionate about providing the most value, leadership and economic impact.  A strategy of combining member benefits and committee's was overwhelmingly approved by each Board.  

Beginning in January 2011, members will receive twice the value of their Chamber membership!  

  • JOINT Membership:  Join one chamber (EDM or SDM) and you are automatically a member of both chambers
  • JOINT Annual dinner
  • JOINT Member Business Directory:  Published in early spring,  it will include East and South side member businesses, along with other helpful information

In addition, the East and South Des Moines Chambers will be working more closely with the other two Des Moines chambers (West side and Downtown) and with the City of Des Moines to provide greater member business exposure and stronger relationships with city leaders and staff. 

Member dues are based on the number of full-time employees, with two part-time employees equaling one full-time employee.

Join one chamber (EDM or SDM) and automatically become a member of both chambers.

Businesses with multiple locations may add employees from all locations for one dues rate, unless multiple memberships are preferred (be sure to note all locations for proper listing online and in the directory).Non-profit organizations pay a set dues rate of $225 no matter the number of employees.

Looking for even more value? Golden Circle sponsorships are available for an additional $300. Sponsors receive their business logo on the home page of the Chamber websites, in the joint Chamber membership directory and at every Chamber event!
