What We Do
Through the Chamber, the people of the Detroit Lakes Region meet the challenges they face with leadership, determination, decision and accomplishment.
Through the Chamber, the people of the Detroit Lakes Region have made it the leading trade center of Becker County and improved the quality of life for all residents.
We are committed to our members, business development, community development, tourism development, and our region’s quality of life.
Participation is key to the Chamber’s — and Detroit Lakes’ — success. It takes hundreds of volunteers working on many different boards, committees, and task forces to complete the events, programs and ambitious business plan of your Chamber. Be a part of the action and get involved today!
