• The Ottawa Area Chamber of Commerce is closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation in our area.  As a business organization, we want to help you navigate this situation and what that means for our community.  The Chamber believes the best way to proceed is with facts and focus on what we can do to keep our members and community safe.
    The two best sources of information for our businesses:

    LaSalle County Health Department
    https://lasallecounty.org/lasalle-county-health-department-2/

    Center for Disease Control (CDC):
    https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

    Please reach out to us if you have issues for concerns, and we will be working on your behalf.  We can advocate for you with our local, county, state and federal officials.

  • Twenty eight volunteers from Chamber member businesses make up the Chamber’s public relations team called the Ambassadors. Ambassadors are active and visible in the area by representing the Chamber at ribbon cutting ceremonies, Business After Hours, Welcomeburger and other Chamber events.

    Ambassadors represent the Chamber and the city of Ottawa year-round, and are an essential part of the Chamber’s success. They assist and volunteer for special events and visit new and potential members as well as current members. The Chamber Ambassadors are proud of Ottawa and actively share that enthusiasm with others.

    Chamber members may request that the Ambassadors attend ribbon cuttings, groundbreakings, and open houses to enhance their event. Contact the Chamber today if you have an upcoming event and would like the Ambassadors to attend.
