The Story City Greater Chamber Connection is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization comprised of the Story City Chamber & Story City Main Street programs. Working as a Certified Main Street Community, the GCC is committed to civic involvement, image enhancement, historic preservation & economic revitalization. Partners of the GCC encompass businesses, organizations & individuals and are the essential ingredient in our ability to provide service to the community.
Our 4-Point Approach
The Story City GCC follows the National Main Street Center’s 4-point approach for downtown revitalization in a community-wide effort, remembering that the heart of our community lies in the downtown. The four key committees under the GCC Board of Directors are Promotion, Organization, Economic Vitality and Design (see tabs below). In addition, the GCC manages Story City's historic 1913 Antique Carousel and collaborates on the annual Scandinavian Days festival.
