The Chamber of Commerce is the heart and backbone of the economy, both locally and nationally. We promote a vibrant business climate and celebrate the diversity and uniqueness of the community. The vast majority of Gig Harbor Chamber members are small businesses with fewer than 15 employees.
Chambers of Commerce are generally incorporated as a 501 (c)(6) business and are NOT part of local, state, or federal government, though Chambers do often partner with government to accomplish the Chamber mission. Chambers of Commerce are funded by member dues as well as non-dues items such as events, sponsorships, contracts, and sales of products and services.
Today the Gig Harbor Chamber of Commerce is focusing on the big picture by supporting a broad range of issues to best help all businesses and the community as a whole rather than any one particular industry, issue, cause, or activity.
