The DACC is 95 years old. It was formally organized in 1924, and the history of the businesses working together in the Decorah area as a community dates back even to the late 19th century.
Today, we represent 350 area businesses. Our membership reflects everything from entrepreneurs, manufacturers, education, health care, retail, restaurants, attractions, and individual members of the business community. Our programming is as diverse as the businesses we represent.
With the increasing population and employment opportunities through 1900, Decorah became an attractive cultural and entertainment center. The community and the businesses always worked hard to grow and expand the opportunities in the area. The people of this region proved how the common challenges and problems they faced together made them even stronger to share, work, and build as a community. This ever-existing potential and all the common efforts prepared the ground for the establishment of a formal organization around which the businesses could gather and work towards the growth of the area and to benefit the entire community.
