  • Where is the Chamber located?

    The Ottawa Area Chamber of Commerce is located at 321 W Main Street, Suite 124 in the IVCC Ottawa Center. Our office is open for drop-ins at any time, but since we are often out and about visiting our members, attending meetings, and helping with events, we would appreciate if you give us a call at 815-433-0084 or send an email to info@ottawachamberillinois.com to let us know you'll be stopping by. We are also closed from 12:00pm - 1:00pm for lunch. 

    We look forward to seeing you!

  • What are the responsibilities of the Chamber Board?

    The Ottawa Area Chamber Board is composed of an elected group of highly-involved, highly-active Chamber members. Representatives of any membership level have the opportunity to sit on the Chamber Board if elected. The Board is responsible for reviewing Chamber financials, voting on major policies and decisions, and setting the overall tone for the direction of the Ottawa Area Chamber. We are incredibly grateful to the members of our Board who volunteer their time to making sure the Chamber is on the right track to support all of our members and the community as a whole.
