Our Mission:

“To aggressively promote and enhance the community, businesses, and quality of life in the Glenwood Area.”

The Glenwood Area Chamber of Commerce serves as a resource for all of Mills County. We consider our office to be the “front door” to our county. We are a not-for-profit organization, funded by dues-paying individual, business, and organization members. We respond to hundreds of inquiries from tourists, newcomers, local citizens, folks interested in starting a business, and anyone needing information each year via walk in visitors, phone calls, e-mails, and mail. We refer to and collaborate with many local, regional, and state partners through the Chamber and Economic Development efforts.

The Glenwood Area Chamber of Commerce is also the office to the Glenwood/Mills County Economic Development Foundation, which assists new and existing businesses with information for location, relocation, expansion, and retention. We keep a database of available commercial properties in our office to respond to inquiries, we work to get vacated and underutilized commercial properties occupied.

Our website features a business directory of our member businesses with contact information and links to their website, along with a community calendar and special projects section. Our office was housed on the 2nd floor of the Glenwood State Bank for over 40 years.  In August of 2012, we moved to the new Glenwood City Hall location at 5 North Vine Street. A Chamber Board of Directors and an Economic Development Board of Directors lead our organization.

Feel free to contact our office or one of our board members should you have any questions. Our door is always open!
