Strengthening the Hiawatha business community

Hiawatha Chamber:

Your Success is

Our Mission

The Hiawatha Chamber and Visitors Bureau is working hard to promote our local business community. Our member businesses receive customer referrals, increased visibility, and networking opportunities. Joining the Chamber doesn't just strengthen your business, it supports our entire community as we continue to grow. 

As we look forward, the Chamber is focused on advocating for local businesses. Let us help you connect with potential customers and fellow businesspeople to help you grow. 


By becoming a member of the Hiawatha Chamber and Visitors Bureau, businesses receive customer referrals, increased visibility, and networking opportunities. Join us as we continue to build our membership and strengthen the business community of Hiawatha.


The HCVB provides a complimentary ribbon cutting to businesses who are new to the community. HCVB members receive advertising and sponsorship opportunities at our community events throughout the year. They are also featured on our newly-developed website, and are encouraged to bring business cards, brochures, etc. to the HCVB office, where their information is accessible to both residents and those who are visiting Hiawatha.

We are firm believers in that it’s not just who you know, but who others know as well. Whether through education seminars, business mixers, or by participating in community events, the HCVB provides networking opportunities that assist our members in getting to know each other, as well as the products and services that are available locally. 

The HCVB has access to resources that can provide members with the tools needed to conquer those everyday challenges. Whether you are struggling with bookkeeping, would like to know more about your Google business listing, or want to learn how to navigate social media, the Chamber can provide you with the tools you need to successfully navigate modern business practices. 

Join the Hiawatha Chamber Bucks Program

Chamber Bucks can be spent just like cash at participating local businesses. Not only are they a great gift or giveaway, Chamber Bucks help local dollars stay local. If you would like to start accepting Chamber Bucks at your business or you would like to purchase Chamber Bucks, please contact us. Joining and supporting the Hiawatha Chamber Bucks program means boosting our local economy by directing your spending power to business owners in our community. Shopping smart means shopping local!
