Who are we?
The De Pere Area Chamber of Commerce (DPACC) has existed in one form or another since the 1930′s, but was official re-titled in early 2007.
From 2001-2007, the organization was titled the dba (De Pere Business Alliance), a joint venture between the De Pere Development Corporation (pre-name for Main Street De Pere, Inc.) and the De Pere Area Business Association.
Prior to that, back to 1988, it was known as the De Pere Business Association. Before THAT, it was the East De Pere Businessmen’s Association and the West De Pere Business Association. And previous to those two organizations formations, it was the De Pere Chamber of Commerce.
