Strengthening Partnerships ~ Bridging Friendships ~ Promoting Business and Community
The Umatilla Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary organization of the business community. The Chamber is not a civic club, charitable organization or department of the city government. The Chamber is a private, non-profit tax paying corporation. It unites hundreds of business and professional firms, thus creating a unique central agency working to improve businesses interested in prospecting and creating a healthy environment in which to conduct business.
But most importantly, the Chamber is people -- people just like you. People who realize that through the Chamber they can accomplish collectively what no one of them can do individually. The strength of the Chamber lies in attracting the greatest number of members, creating a pool of resources from which can be drawn ideas, energy and finances.
We need you today! We invite and challenge you to join with us in developing and shaping the future. Let's work together to make it the best it can be.
Please fill out the information request or call the Chamber for more information.
The Umatilla Chamber of Commerce can only be as good as its members. Come be part of your Chamber and help to make Umatilla a great place to live and work.
