The Moville Chamber of Commerce was founded on May 16, 1955 as an organization to advance the civic, commercial, industrial, agricultural and social interests of the town of Moville, Iowa and surrounding territory. The Moville Chamber was the successor organization to what was known as the Moville Commercial Club. Membership to this organization is the same today as written in the original 1955 by-laws. “Any person, Firm, Association or Corporation interested in the general welfare of the city of Moville and the surrounding territory shall be eligible to membership in this Chamber of Commerce.
Today, the organization continues meeting, planning and organizing just as it did in 1955. In recent years, the membership has grown to nearly 70 commercial and individual members. The organization holds monthly meetings on the second Monday of each month except for the months of July and August. It continues to sponsor many community events and has been instrumental in coordinating several community projects. In particular, members of the Chamber along with volunteers from MCDAI were influential in organizing and funding the Market Grocery Store Project. Members of the Chamber volunteer for and contribute to annual community events such as Easter Egg Hunt, Moville Days, The Chamber Golf Tournament, Halloween Trick-or Treat Night, A Christmas Celebration and many Woodbury Central School activities.
