About GACC Midwest, MN Chapter

Founded in 1992, the Minnesota Chapter of the German American Chamber of Commerce of the Midwest, Inc. (GACC Midwest) represents German and American companies and individuals in Minnesota committed to promoting German-American business and trade.

The mission of GACC Midwest's Minnesota Chapter is to provide business networking and educational opportunities for our local members who are interested in and committed to German-American business relations. In addition, membership in the Minnesota Chapter affords direct access to the services and other benefits offered by GACC Midwest in Chicago. To find out more about our members and the benefits of membership, go to the Membership pages.

GACC Midwest's Minnesota Chapter is a not-for-profit, membership-based organization, incorporated under the laws of the state of Minnesota. A Board of Directors, elected from among our members, oversees and directs the business of the Minnesota Chapter. An Executive Director is responsible for day-to-day business operations and administration.

Through our affiliation with the German American Chamber of Commerce of the Midwest, headquartered in Chicago, we not only belong to one of three regional Chambers in the United States with over 2,500 member companies nationwide, we are also part of the worldwide network of German Chambers Abroad (AHK), with representation in over 80 countries. To learn more about this global network, visit the AHK Website.

Through GACC Midwest office in Chicago, our members can also connect with the over 3 million companies represented by the German Association of Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK) in Germany. If that seems overwhelming, one of the services provided by GACC Midwest is finding the right German business partner or customer for our U.S. member companies.
