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.
The Chamber officially started to function in 1924, and the first President of the Chamber was J.A. Nelson and since then, we have had many more presidents as the leaders of our business community.
Today, that focus has not changed. The Decorah area continues to be a successful place to do business. Whether you're an owner or an employee, this is the right place for you!
