Join the chamber, open doors

Why should we join the Chamber of Commerce, what do they do, what’s in it for me?
First, the Enumclaw Chamber of Commerce’s purpose is to support local businesses, offer networking opportunities to help foster community, give referrals to locals and visitors to town and offer ways to advertise your business. We do this in a variety of ways and, like a lot of things in life, the more you put in the more you will get out of it. Don’t sit on the sidelines, you can’t score from there.
Our business breakfasts the third Thursday of every month offer a way to meet and network with other local business people while enjoying a great breakfast and listening to interesting topics that can help with your business.
Business After Hours events allow you to invite the community to your place of business for hors d’oeuvres and some refreshments.
TNT (the explosive power of networking) meetings are every Friday morning at The Cole Street Bar and Grill and are open to all businesses at no cost, except what you may order to eat or drink.
Celebrate grand openings or re-openings with an official ribbon-cutting at your location.
Our monthly newsletter spotlights all new members and one chamber business per month, will announce updates to your business and all upcoming community events.
Our soon-to-be-revamped website will be much more user friendly and allow a lot more advertising opportunities and offer links to your business. We anticipate an unveiling sometime around the first of the year.
All members are allowed to display their business cards and marketing brochures at the chamber office.
