Our mission is to promote progressive community and economic development to benefit Chamber members and the North Iowa region.
We are a membership-based organization more than 650 strong whose members provide more than 16,000 jobs in the region. We work for the success of our members, and we strive to promote and educate to ensure the future growth of North Iowa.
Our vision is grounded in our mission and we challenge ourselves to paint a picture of the region we want to be: a place with well designed community programs and economic development best practices that assist free enterprise to create jobs and prosperity. Tomorrow’s headlines will be the product of actions we’re taking today behind the scenes to keep North Iowa vibrant.
The Mason City Area Chamber of Commerce provides leadership on key issues and strategic policy recommendations to stimulate economic growth in North Iowa. Such growth is achieved by creating an environment conducive to business success, which leads to job expansion and increased state and local revenues.
In addition, the Chamber provides two signature programs with a rich tradition of helping to shape future leaders: Leadership North Iowa and YIELD. People who commit to our leadership programs are difference-makers; our loyal sponsors and supporting businesses are a strong testament to their effectiveness.
The Mason City Area Chamber of Commerce is a 501(c)6 organization. We are nonpartisan, but we do take positions on issues at the local, state, and federal level to stimulate economic growth opportunities for local business. We challenge our elected officials to be responsible stewards of taxpayer money and to invest in programs and policies that will enable North Iowa to grow.
Joining the Chamber is a good thing to do, but what exactly does an active chamber membership say about you or your company? Studies show that being active in the local chamber of commerce is a good strategy for businesses to use in communicating to consumers that their company uses good business practices, is involved in the community, cares about customers, and is reputable and trustworthy.
