Spirit Lake Walmart joins chamber's highest tier
The Iowa Navy Commodores welcomed a high-ranking member to the Iowa Great Lakes Chamber organization Friday morning. The Commodores gathered at the Spirit Lake Walmart to recognize the business as the first "Chairman's Council" member. The chamber launched a new five-tiered level membership model this winter, and members may choose the tier and benefits which best suit individual business needs. IGL Chamber Executive Director Blain Andera said the Chairman's Council Membership is the highest level of membership offered. Walmart store manager Jordan Butler was presented with an engraved plaque for the store in recognition of the membership and said it will be displayed proudly. "We hold the community in high regard and we want to ensure the community understands how important they are to us," Butler said, calling the membership a no-brainer. "We just wanted to reiterate the commitment we have to the community."
