Networking & New Connections
Real Networking with Real People. With our luncheons, workshops, and big events, we offer the fastest and most efficient way to get connected with local professionals.
The Chamber is constantly looking for professional development workshops to offer our members. If there’s something members want to learn, they can let the Chamber know and we’ll work on a way to offer it.
Certificate of Origin
The chamber will verify certificates of origin for all chamber members.
The chamber board and committees all work towards further economic development of Burlington. Whether it’s developing afterhours, tourism, or local events, we’re constantly striving to make Burlington a great place to work.
We represent our members’ interests to City, County, and State governments. Our Legislative and Education committee will also gather info on relevant legislation and make sure our members are informed on what’s going on with their local government.
The Chamber runs the Burlington Visitor Information Center. We get hundreds of calls a year from customers and businesses inside and outside of Skagit County, looking for business recommendations.
