About the Chamber

The New Melle Chamber of Commerce was started in 1995. Since its inception, the chamber has sponsored a number of community projects and events. Some of the more notable accomplishments include:
  • Annual Scholarship Program: Since 1999, the chamber has awarded over $39,000 in tuition assistance to college bound or technical school students who reside within the New Melle Fire Protection District. Funds for the scholarships are raised through the chamber’s annual golf tournament.
  • Annual Easter Egg Hunt – a free community event that provides thousands of eggs for hunting and hundreds of dollars in prizes each year.
  • Installation of the "Welcome to New Melle" sign at the intersection of Hwys. Z and D in New Melle.
  • Purchasing the Christmas decorations for the streets of New Melle. The decorations are put up and taken down each holiday season by AmerenUE, with the help of chamber members.
  • Annual Membership Directory providing community information and highlighting member businesses.
Today, the chamber continues to sponsor events and activities designed to promote commerce in the community and help member businesses succeed, including monthly meetings, marketing and advertising opportunities, community involvement, web site and FaceBook page, and more.
