• Celebration of Progress

  • This fall, the chamber hosts the Celebration of Progress to showcase new and upcoming commercial developments on the East Side, to celebrate the success of Chamber member businesses, to award the Educator of the Year, and to raise funds for the annual scholarships given to students from East High School, Lincoln High School, Grand View University and Des Moines Area Community College.


    We look to our Chamber businesses to sponsor this event to kickoff fundraising for the next round of scholarships.  If you have questions or are interested in a sponsorship, please contact Sadie Trytten.
