The Chamber And You ...
Like most chambers of commerce, the Bremerton Chamber of Commerce is a private, non-profit membership organization. Our mission is to promote and support our member businesses and provide leadership to enhance a positive business environment. This mission has helped the Bremerton Chamber become one of the largest chambers on the Olympic Peninsula as well as one of the most effective chambers in delivering benefits to our members and the community.
Businesses and individuals join the Bremerton Chamber for a number of reasons. Many join for networking and advertising opportunities. Some members want to take advantage of our member discounts. And most understand that supporting the Bremerton Chamber of Commerce is a terrific way to support the community, businesses and our local economy.
The Chamber offers many in-house services including extensive visitor and relocation assistance.
The Chamber is also involved in many behind-the-scenes activities to help the business and citizens of Bremerton and Kitsap County. The Chamber works on economic development and international trade, tourism, tax and regulatory issues as well as community planning and redevelopment.
The Chamber is very active on the Social Media front. Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and LinkedIn are proving to be an amazing new way to network and market businesses and events. We offer a 'Members Only' group on Facebook, where our members can offer insight, special deals for members, and give each other tips on successful practices.
We also feature a video 'Spotlight on a Member' which is featured on YouTube, shared on Facebook, and highlighted on our webpage. We are YOUR home town multimedia company! Our links to Social Media are as follows:
