What do our members say about our chamber?

“The Bellingham Chamber of Commerce hands down has been instrumental to my career.   The business community in Whatcom County is supportive, knowledgeable, hardworking and FUN!  The Chamber has and is the “connector” that has provided this for me.”

““I have been a Chamber member for many years. The relationships I have developed over that time have resulted in business that far exceeds the small investment in Chamber membership. Not only have I done business with other members, I have developed lifelong friendships from those relationships. Chamber activities provide the perfect structure for busy business owners to plug into for networking, support and community building. It’s a win/win for all businesses to be involved in the Chamber – I will always be a member!”.”

“The Chamber is what you put into it. If you are looking for change, then you must create it. But if you have the right people meeting in the right area, all the right things will happen at the right time. The Chamber can help
facilitate that.”

“The Chamber has supported me through more than 25 years in Whatcom County. The Chamber helped me make the long  term connections that have built my career as a banker. The Chamber remains a valued personal and professional resource within the community and is essential to the business community.”
