Welcome to Chamber Chatter

The Tillamook Area Chamber of Commerce has been a staple in Tillamook County since 1931. We are the largest network of businesses and organizations in the county.

But what exactly does that mean?

It means we are a community; a community of business owners, entrepreneurs and organizations who all want a robust and vibrant community for our citizens. We have more than 280 members in the Chamber who actively work together to create this type of business community. We are always growing, improving, and learning from each other.

When people think of the Chamber of Commerce they may recall the Tillamook Bay Run, or perhaps they’ve attended our awards ceremony in January. What they may not know is how myself, the Chamber Board of Directors, and Chamber members are constantly advocating for economic growth in Tillamook County.

With this new column, I will be bringing you weekly updates about the Chamber and the things we are involved in within the community. You’ll learn about new developments downtown, new businesses, and you’ll learn about the tools and resources that we offer our members to help them succeed. You’ll read more about our events, and what being a member of the Chamber means. I’ll share with you some exciting updates we are working on at the Chamber that will help visitors to our community experience more of what we have to offer.

The idea behind Chamber Chatter is to better inform our readers about the many ways the Chamber is involved in the community, and how we continue to be a leader for economic growth and vitality in our county. This column will be your “go to” place for Chamber news and information.

Speaking of which, stop by and see us at the Tillamook County Fair on Aug. 10-13. Each day our booth will feature one of our Chamber-member businesses, as well as information about the Chamber and some brand new apparel.

The Chamber Board and myself value your input and insight. Feel free to contact me anytime at info@tillamookchamber.org.
