The Chamber receives thousands of requests each year for recommendations on goods and services to be purchased in the Adel-Cook County area. We refer Chamber Members to these newcomers, visitors, new industries, and area residents using our CHAMBER MEMBERSHIP DIRECTORY.
Every year the Chamber partners with Members who are interested in cross-promoting events with our organization. The Cook County Historical Society, Cook County Council for the Arts, Cook County Workforce Develpment Center, the Cook County Exchange Club, the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Cook County, to name a few, are examples organizations with whom we co-sponsor events each year. Your group or organization, as Chamber Members, will enjoy the same benefits that these fine organizations receive when the power of the Chamber is working with you and for you.
