The first chamber of commerce was organized in Concordia in 1879 and called the Board of Trade.  In 1900 it was organized as the Concordia Commercial Club, which in 1918 became the Chamber of Commerce.

As stated in the original charter, the purpose of the organization is to foster industrial and commercial advancements and to make Concordia a better place to live.
