In January 2011, the East Des Moines Chamber and South Des Moines Chamber combined efforts and resources by offering joint membership. For the next two years, the Chambers worked together to provide enhanced benefits to members through goal-driven committees, programs to support member business needs and a full calendar of events.
Following a recommendation from the East Des Moines Chamber and South Des Moines Chamber Boards of Directors in January 2013, members voted and approved to join organizations, forming one chamber: Des Moines East and South Chamber of Commerce.
Merging to one chamber allowed the organizations to combine Boards of Directors and more efficiently and effectively meet the needs of its members. The combined Board of Directors developed a long-term strategy to ensure the Chamber is positioned to meet the needs of all members in East and South Des Moines.
