Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce
The Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce cheekily bills itself as “Not your daddy’s chamber,” but don’t let that fool you. It’s a force to be reckoned with.
Since its inception in 2007, the reformed Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce has functioned as much as a community development organization as a business Chamber. They’ve partnered with non-profit organizations in their neighborhood on issues of affordable housing, transit-oriented development, and LGBT community concerns. True economic development, their primary mission, includes all of these very important civic issue conversations. The Chamber knows a healthy neighborhood is the most fertile ground for healthy economic development.
The Capitol Hill Chamber advocates for its members and the community with the City of Seattle on issues of safety, transportation, sanitation, economic development, and many other civic and neighborhood issues. The Capitol Hill Chamber also works regularly with Sound Transit, the Seattle Police Department, Seattle City Council, and the City’s Office of Economic Development. They do all this to ensure the economic health and vitality in Capitol Hill for all residents and businesses.
