WEST DES MONES, IA (December 1, 2020) – The West Des Moines Chamber of Commerce (WDM Chamber) announced today WDM LEADS, an opportunity to help businesses grow, network, and develop. WDM LEADS is a new executive group where members can network with other top business development professionals, build trusted relationships, share business leads and help each other build sales.

Each WDM LEADS group is limited to one professional industry per team. Groups are limited to approximately 20 people and more than one professional group can coincide at the same time. Once the first WDM LEADS group is filled, the WDM Chamber will start populating the next one.

Participants must be a WDM Chamber member to qualify and be in good standing. WDM LEADS dues are $495 for one year which includes all fees associated with being part of this new, executive opportunity.

“I am very excited about this new opportunity for business development professionals from around the region to be involved in the WDM Chamber in this new way,” said Katherine Harrington, President and CEO of the WDM Chamber. “Over 30% of our members are from outside the area and due to that, leads from members will be coming from not only our beautiful city, but from all over the metro.”

“By leveraging the support and power of the WDM Chamber, we will be able to take the concept of a leads group to the next level,” said Shane Kennedy, the leader of the first WDM LEADS group, a 20-year sales veteran and sales leader at Jacobs Real Estate Partners. “I am very proud to be part of this new venture and watch it flourish.”
