About Us

Message from the Chair,

 

The West Seattle Chamber of Commerce is known for its advocacy for its members. Over the last several years your Chamber has taken to the forefront many issues that are impacting our community. From hosting forums on current issues, to providing events to let our members get to know the candidates running to represent us in various legislative offices, having members serving on various boards and commissions to advocate for stronger business positons, hosting our first ever job fair, our first ever recycling event along with our neighborhood street clean-up activities.   As you can see your West Seattle Chamber is out in the community seeking to make West Seattle a place for all of our residents to call home.

 

It is important that our voice be heard on issues large and small which impact our West Seattle community. This is even more important as we have several huge issues on the horizon in this coming year. A decision will be made about light rail coming to the peninsula, revamping of the Move Seattle levy and how that could impact an additional Rapid Ride line and other transit options, and fast moving initiatives from our city government. Our community voice is bigger, bolder and more effective when there are more businesses and individuals behind that voice. Take this as your invitation to join the conversation and become a member of the West Seattle Chamber of Commerce. Your West Seattle Chamber of Commerce is celebrating 95 years representing this community and now is the time to become involved to help shape the next 95 years..
