In response to the heightened interest and overall need for a collective voice and standing organization, we have formed the Waynedale Business Chamber (WBC). The chamber is free to join and holds meetings every second Thursday of the month. At these meetings, the chamber will address ideas for Waynedale business and overall community improvement. Members work together as a whole and in committees to accomplish the collective group’s short term and long term goals. Each member present at the meetings will have a voice in what the WBC works on and when and how each project is completed.

By creating an entity, we give the business leaders (and the ‘Waynedale business district’) a voice to petition the city for improvements; a general members meeting time and date to discuss problems in our area, and a way to meet and greet your business neighbors.

Dave Umber – Umber’s Do It Best
WBC President

Dawn Gilreath – Midwest America Federal Credit Union
WBC Secretary

The Next Meeting:
