A Chamber of Commerce is a network of businesses whose main objective is to promote and ensure the livelihood of local businesses.
But have you ever wondered how Chelan’s Chamber of Commerce earns its money- and what it does to promote our valley?

Steele adds that the community truly does receive a tremendous benefit from folks who don’t live in our valley, but stay in local hotels.
