Profiles of Excellence
Naperville was first settled in 1831 by Captain Joseph Naper and his brother, John. In 1857, the Village of Naperville was incorporated and became a city on March 17, 1890. From a population of 2,600 in 1900, Naperville has become one of the fastest growing communities in the Midwest with a current population of 145,000. Over this span of time, Naperville has expanded brilliantly into a city of overwhelming economic growth. The Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce has been instrumental in the city’s growth over the years.
The Chamber of Commerce was originally founded in 1913 as the Naperville Association of Commerce. Through the commitment and involvement of its Members, the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce continues to provide business leadership for the benefit of the Naperville community. Among the Chamber’s many accomplishments over the years, the following are indicative of the influence the Chamber has had in Naperville.
In 2005 the Board approved and implemented a new membership model, Business Connect, which significantly changed the ‘one size fits all’ Membership culture. Additionally, the Naperville Area Chamber Political Action Committee (NACPAC), a separate organization responsible for advocating and furthering the legislative agenda of the Chamber, was approved, organized and began its fundraising efforts. To celebrate the 175th anniversary of Naperville, the Chamber created an entirely new flagship coffee table book, 175 Years of Success. The Chamber continued to be recognized for its excellence in communications with another series of ACE awards and received high scores and honors for other programs, publications and events.
