Growth for the community & residents.

The mission of the Independence Area Chamber of Commerce is to empower local businesses, service organizations, and individuals through advocacy, community enhancement, education, and networking.


Iowa Kind

History and hospitality fill our small town. Your friends will become your family and the 175+ years of history will continue for years to come. Family, friends, farmland, and faith are what make you proud to be living in small-town Midwest. In addition, you'll receive a top-quality education and health care without ever leaving town. Take a look at why Independence is truly a great place to call home.


More than Farmland

We may be surrounded by farmland, which we are more than proud of, but we have more to offer than just agriculture. Industrial manufacturing and retail offer plenty of opportunities for both employers and prospective employees. Discover what our area can do for you or your business.


Play Hard

The Midwest is known for being hard-working and determined but we also know how to relax and have fun. Nearly any outdoor activity is right at your doorstep yet there is still plenty to be discovered on those rainy days. Check out just how much there is to see and do when you live in Independence or any of our surrounding communities.
