Who can attend Chamber events?


Chamber events are intended only for representatives of companies that are members of the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber. Non-members may attend on a one-time basis for non-members wishing to “try us out”. However, we do have a few events open to the public such as our Tradeshow, or some co-hosted events like our All-Chamber after hours which are also open to members of co-hosting organizations.

Find out more about the benefits of Chamber membership and how your company can become a member by calling the Membership Hotline at (206) 389-7236.

Severe weather policy


Driving conditions may vary greatly for event participants depending on where they live or work. As long as it is reasonably possible, Chamber events will take place as scheduled.

For morning events (programs that start before 11 a.m.): The Seattle Metropolitan Chamber follows the Seattle Public Schools closure decision. If the Seattle Public School System is closed due to severe weather, morning events will be cancelled. If the Seattle Public School System is delayed Chamber events will go on as scheduled.

For events starting later in the day (programs that start after 11 a.m.): If schools of the Seattle Public School System are open, events will take place as scheduled. If Seattle schools are closed, call the event registrar to find out whether the event will go on as scheduled.

Policy on accessibility


Events are held in physically accessible locations. If you require an assistant because of limitations of mobility, vision or hearing, we welcome you to register your assistant, in advance, at no cost.

Cancellations


No cash refunds will be made for canceled registrations, but substitutions are welcome

Unless otherwise stated, a credit for a canceled registration will be allowed provided the cancellation request is received by the event registrar at least one full business day prior to the start of the event.

Credits from canceled registrations not used within one year of the date of the event will be forfeited.
