About Us

Our Mission

The Lacon Area Chamber of Commerce is the proactive voice of local business, working for the promotion, protection and prosperity of our members and community.

Our Purpose

Actively promote a healthy business and economic climate for our area.

  • Create a better understanding and appreciation of the importance of local area businesses and a concern for their problems.
  • Promote business and community growth and development; retention and expansion of existing businesses.
  • Discover and correct circumstances which prevent the promotion of business expansion and community growth.
  • Promote programs of a civic, social and cultural nature which increase the functional and aesthetic values of the community.
  • Continue to promote tourism for the city and to work closely with the City of Lacon in this effort.

The Chamber of Commerce serves as the primary conduit for information about our community, from requests for general community and event information to inquiries about relocation to our area. The Chamber provides a critical link between those seeking information and resources within our communities and the agencies, businesses, and organizations that provide those resources.

The Chamber works closely with area businesses and state and local government officials in the development of public policy that may affect business health in the Lacon area. The Chamber fosters communication and collaboration between area businesses, helping to create community synergy through information sharing, leveraging of resources, and the development of business connections.
