The MIDWEST DANISH AMERICAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE host a series of unique company presentations called INSIGHT. In other words: Get insight from the insiders!

Midwest Danish American Chamber of Commerce

The Midwest Danish American Chamber of Commerce has undergone a revitalization process and a new organisation is in place, with address at The Danish Home in Chicago.

The Chamber covers the territories of the upper midwest, including the states of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin. We have the pleasure of announcing a new series of events within the near future.

The Midwest Danish American Chamber of Commerce offers a range of services that suits the needs of both Danes living and working in the Midwest United States and locals who have a personal or commercial interest in the Danish-American community.


Who we are

The Midwest Danish American Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit organisation. The chamber not only covers Chicago and Illinois, but also includes Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

The main activity of the Danish American Chamber of Commerce is to create interesting and relevant events and networking opportunities for our members and we are always open to requests or new ideas from our members.

Seeing that the chamber is financially self-supported, the activities are exclusively out of interest and voluntary work of its members, the secretariat and the board of directors. This also means that the chamber's existence is based on membership fees, sponsorships and donations.


Our Mission

The mission of the Midwest Danish American Chamber of Commerce (MWDACC) is to create a strong professional network between Danish and American companies in the Midwest, wishing to participate in mutual trade relations across borders.

MWDACC wishes to stimulate and encourage trade and investments between Denmark and the United States by creating a multi-cultural network that will further business relations between the two countries. 

MWDACC also offers members invitations to participate in events sponsored by other European American Chambers, with particular focus on The Swedish American Chamber of Commerce (SACC), the Norwegian American Chamber of Commerce (NACC) and The Finnish American Chamber of Commerce (FACC)

In addition, MWDACC will serve as a catalyst and umbrella organization, offering informative communication of events for of all Danish American and other Nordic Chambers social clubs and societies, allowing members to be able to connect with each other on a social level.
