Win new customers
The Everett Area Chamber of Commerce offers a complete calendar of opportunities to introduce yourself to fellow Chamber members and their 60,000 employees, a surefire way to market your business. From networking breakfasts to business introductions and regional trade show events, Chamber event planners are continually seeking ways to put you in front of prospective customers.
Business Resource Center
Chamber membership brings with it access to a wide variety of experts and information resources. Need a business plan? A marketing strategy? A bank loan? Health insurance? Chamber business resource experts know the Everett area business community and can point you toward the information and services you require.
No business can succeed alone. In fact, a stable, prosperous and diverse economy makes business success easier for all. More importantly, a growing and stable economy structured so that its businesses can compete fairly in a global marketplace provides resources to our communities, schools, social institutions and the arts. The Everett Area Chamber of Commerce, backed by the strength of its 700 members, is a strong advocate for state and local business regulations and policies that are fair, proportionate and enforced consistently. Whether the issue is taxation, regulatory reform, permit policies or competitiveness, the Chamber is honored to speak on your behalf.
The Chamber focuses on key issues that impact the economic health of the community, including transportation, education, community and economic development, reducing the tax burden on business and improving the regulatory environment.
Expert Business Counseling
Adequate information and expert guidance are critical to business success. Free business training and counseling and access to small business loans now are available to Chamber members right in the Chamber office through a new partnership with the Northwest Women’s Business Center, the U.S. Small Business Administration, Community Capital Development and the Washington State PTAC (Procurement Technical Assistance Center).
These one-on-one counseling services are designed to help business owners interested in starting or growing a business. Areas of expertise include general management, marketing, financial planning, contract procurement, feasibility analyses of a new business idea, assistance in writing a business plan, preparing a loan application, and human resources and staffing decisions. The PTAC program provides education, assistance and support to companies interested in doing business with the federal government.
