Due to the current pandemic, please note that our office is running with very limited resources, especially when it comes to answering the phone at (206) 842-3700. We will endeavor to answer all messages within 1 business day.

Please browse these pages for answers to simple questions, but for personal assistance visit the Chamber office – we are prioritizing operations to serve in-person customers during office hours.
