What can you tell me about the Atlantic area in general?
The Atlantic area is a thriving community that is home to 7,500 people and is continually working to better serve our residents and visitors. We are fortunate to be able to offer many state-of-the-art facilities, a healthy economy, strong retail businesses, and caring residents and community leaders. 

What’s different about the Atlantic Area Chamber of Commerce?
Many people think Atlantic is great because it’s so close to both Omaha and Des Moines, but with our diverse retail businesses, outstanding customer service, and attention to detail we are a retail hub in our own right! We offer shopping, health care services, museums, outdoor activities, and many other services right here.

Why should I (my business) join the Atlantic Chamber?
The Chamber works closely with members and community leaders to create an atmosphere that builds, maintains and grows our Chamber members. We offer numerous opportunities for our members to network and expand their professional contacts, as well as educational opportunities to learn more about smart business practices and emerging trends. The Chamber constantly develops new programs and campaigns with the help of business representatives to benefit the local businesses and the community.
