A 100 Year History in Chicago
The West Central Association - Chamber of Commerce (WCA) is dedicated to enhancing the well-being of its member businesses, institutions, and organizations.
Since 1918, the WCA has advocated for business and property owners on legislation, taxation, transportation, architectural treatment and model plans for the area.
The Chamber’s growing membership works together to encourage a healthy business environment by providing a unified voice for our members, supporting thoughtful development, encouraging mutual support, and attracting new businesses, institutions, and residents to the area. WCA is a City of Chicago Delegate Agency and sole service provider for Greektown Special Service Area #16.

Summer is almost over! Come wine down on Madison Row with a wine walk!
Participating businesses will have wine (or some kind of special drink; not all drinks may have alcohol in them) available for you to sip while you look around their businesses.
To start the wine walk: Pick up plastic wine cups at VITAHL, 1135 W. Madison St., once you get a cup in hand you can head to any other participating business you want. There is no specific order to visit businesses. Thank you to our sponsor Luxe on Madison!!
Participating businesses will have red and blue balloons outside their business!
