Chamber meetings resume and upcoming speakers and events

After careful consideration, and polling the membership we are changing our meeting structure to begin the last Wednesday of September with the Clallam County Budget and Road Show (this is recurring on the last Wednesday in September every year).

We will meet the first and third Wednesday, October through May. We are also changing our meeting start time to 11:30 a.m. This will give us more time to network and will give our presenters an opportunity to get into depth with information and questions. We have tried to schedule meaningful programs and we hope you have a chance to join us! If you have a suggestion for a program, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

There will be a lunch special, or you can order off the menu. Our meetings take place at Blakeslee’s Bar & Grill, 1222 S. Forks Avenue, 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. and are open to the public. All are welcome to attend. This is an in-person meeting. We will not have a Zoom or call-in option due to limited internet at the venue.
