Women's Affiliate


Our Mission
Organized in 1962, The Women's Affiliate of the Beaver Dam Area Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to the beautification of Beaver Dam and the promotion of business and goodwill within our community.


New Members Always Welcome!

Our History
The Women's Affiliate of the Chamber of Commerce was formed in 1962 at a time in history when women were not accepted as members of the Chamber of Commerce. The Charter members represented a cross section of our community and a variety of entrepreneurial occupations. These women had a desire to make a contribution and to work positively for Beaver Dam. The initial name of the group was the "Chambermaids" and reflected the sense of humor and spirit of fun that the initial group possessed. Now as the "Women's Affiliate" the membership continues in the spirit of good will and positive contributions to the Beaver Dam Community.
