The Waupaca Area Chamber of Commerce, a not-for-profit business membership organization with more than 400 member investors, is here to serve as an advocate for our Member investors and the Waupaca Area. The WACC offers the smallest organization to the largest employer, in the area, ways to grow and improve their business through networking, marketing opportunities, educational programs, and numerous other programs and services.
The WACC is governed by a 15-member board that meets on the second Tuesday of each month at the Chamber building, 221 South Main Street. The directors hire a full-time President. Other members of the staff include a Communications Director, Operations Director, Tourism Director, Information Services, and Membership Sales.
Any business or group can join the WACC by investing in a membership. Present members include about 65 percent of the business and professional people in the community.
About 37 percent of the WACC budget comes from member dues. A minimum dues and fair share schedule determines dues levels. An additional 24 percent is acquired through the City of Waupaca room tax and used for tourism advertising. Festivals and other WACC sponsored events provide 20 percent of the budgeted money and 19 percent is other income.
Monday – Friday: 8 am – 5 pm
