Our History

Founded in 1860 by a small community of German settlers, the City of Concordia has since grown into a prosperous rural community of 2,500 residents. Strong work ethic, family values and a unified vision for the future, advanced the economic development in the area, which led to the founding of the Concordia Area Chamber of Commerce.    

The Chamber began when a group of driven business owners came together with one common goal to support local businesses by providing innovative programs and resources to expand their connectivity and visibility in the area. Since the Chamber’s founding in 1992, Concordia’s economy has continually progressed, leading to today’s success of the area’s many small businesses. As the community continues to thrive, the Chamber maintains its promise to advocate for its members.
