WHO WE ARE
The Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce is the largest and most diverse business association in the Puget Sound region. Founded in 1882 by local business leaders, the Chamber today is an independent organization representing 2,200 companies and a regional workforce of approximately 700,000.
WHAT WE DO
At the Chamber, we believe that the business community thrives when then whole community is healthy. And we believe our region is uniquely positioned to compete in the global marketplace because we embrace three key attributes: we create jobs, we are responsible stewards of the environment, and we ensure access and opportunity for all.
We play many roles as a result. We are a:
- policy advocate and the only Chamber in the area that represents business at the city, regional, state and federal levels;
- convener and coalition-builder around issues we all care about, from transportation to education to the environment;
- one-stop shop for all of the tools businesses need to grow, from high-quality networking to employee benefits;
- community partner and champion for projects, initiatives and people who make our region globally competitive as well as a great place to live, work and raise a family.
Chamber membership gives you access to all the tools you need to grow your businesses and helps you make a positive impact on the community. Involvement is open to all businesses.
