In January 2011, the East Des Moines Chamber and South Des Moines Chamber combined efforts and resources by offering joint membership. For the next two years, the Chambers worked together to provide enhanced benefits to members through goal-driven committees, programs to support member business needs and a full calendar of events. Following a recommendation from the East Des Moines Chamber and South Des Moines Chamber Boards of Directors in January 2013, members voted and approved to join organizations, forming one chamber: Des Moines East and South Chamber of Commerce. Merging to one chamber allowed the organizations to combine Boards of Directors and more efficiently and effectively meet the needs of its members. The combined Board of Directors developed a long-term strategy to ensure the Chamber positions itself to meet the needs of all it's members in East and South Des Moines.
Five years later in 2017, another opportunity presented itself to grow our community of passionate and authentic business owners with the integration of the northside of Des Moines. We knew it would become a bit of a mouthful if we just added the north to our name so we rebranded ourselves to eliminate the borders that define most chambers. We did this so we could move forward into the future as one chamber ready to ignite business growth for everyone as FuseDSM, Your Chamber Of Commerce.
