Being a part of the DCR Chamber has so many benefits! There is something for everyone: From smaller-scale events like the Advocacy & Issues Forum, Ribbon Cuttings, and Coffee Breaks to larger-scale events like the Business of Excellence Awards Celebration, the Annual Golf Classic, and the WomEn's Leadership Forum. The DCR Chamber is so supportive of and engaged with Dakota County businesses and organizations. Make it a priority to attend at least one upcoming event. You won't regret it!

After 25+ years in corporate, I made the transition to residential real estate, a career I absolutely love! I joined the DCRC and it has offered a fantastic opportunity for me to meet local business people. I’ve made outstanding and long lasting professional and personal connections and received great referrals for my business. No doubt I have closed business due to my chamber connections. The best way to make the chamber work for you is to join a committee as well as attend and volunteer at events. This allows the opportunity to really get to know chamber members on a much more personal level.

I joined the chamber shortly after I moved my business to Eagan in 1987; it is by far one of the best decisions I have made. The Chamber’s one of the top networking groups you can join to meet other area businesses and committee leaders.

My company’s membership along with my active involvement in the Dakota County Regional (DCR) Chamber of Commerce has brought visibility to my company, long-lasting business relationships and the opportunity to use my leadership skills to champion others. The benefits of a DCR Chamber membership are worth so much more than our monetary investment-it’s invaluable!

A chamber is a great tool and resource that can benefit any member of the business community. There are numerous opportunities to volunteer on committees and also participate in various events. I have been able to build many relationships that I likely wouldn’t have been able to develop without the connection of chamber. If you are looking to get involved and build your network, or meet people in the community,  the Dakota County Regional Chamber is the perfect organization for you.

Joining the Dakota Regional Chamber is a critical step that opens the door to the benefits of the Chamber – but that member then needs to walk through the door and begin to participate:  coffee breaks, after hours, Good Day Dakota County, Golf tournament, Business Excellence Awards, Women’s Conference, and more. They will find, as I did, that others begin to see you as a leader, a resource, and a confidante in meeting the needs of their business and their community. Isn’t that what we all want?

DCR Chamber has allowed me to expand my network to other government relations counterparts by participating in the Government Affairs Committee. I have been able to connect with policy-makers at the local, state, and federal levels and advocate for business and higher education more directly. A result of DCR Chamber’s dedication to building relationships with legislators, council members, commissioners, and Congress.

Being a member of the Dakota County Chamber is a gift. The members care about the success of my business and more importantly they care about me. It is such a great group of people.
