Chamber of Commerce rebranding reflects mission and representation promoting business and encouraging community in All of South Kitsap
The South Kitsap Chamber of Commerce, formerly known as the Port Orchard Chamber of Commerce, is a collection of local businesses and civic minded individuals cooperating to encourage the local economy and promote the well-being of the entire South Kitsap community. The change in name is to better align with the mission, vision, purpose of Chamber, and the community it represents… South Kitsap. Current and prospective members should expect the high-quality services and support to continue under the new South Kitsap brand.
The purpose of the SK Chamber remains:
- Business and community advocacy
- Provide educational resources to businesses, the community, government officials, and regulatory bodies
- Clarify business’ understanding of current business climates and issue identification
- Remain a source of referrals to local businesses and a platform for business-to-business opportunities
