About Us

Our Mission

To provide proactive leadership to advance a positive business environment and foster economic growth through community identity, involvement,and membership participation.


Formed more than 40 years ago, the DeForest Area Chamber of Commerce, with a membership over 200, promotes the positive economic and community development in the Village of DeForest and nearby towns of Windsor, Burke, Leeds and Vienna.

Located just 10 minutes north of Madison, “The North Star of Dane County” is experiencing continuous residential and business growth, making Dane County one of the fastest-growing regions in Southern Wisconsin.

Rich farmland and rolling hills combine for a pastoral landscape that draws residents looking for a distinctive community to call home. Proximity to the State Capitol and the Dane County Regional Airport, along with major state and interstate highways, make our location an easy destination.
