The Oregon State Chamber of Commerce and the Washington Chamber of Commerce Executives are proud to introduce a joint, virtual conference for 2020.

2020 has been a year of unprecedented change. Chambers have shown their strength during these difficult times by supporting the businesses in their communities. 

Now is the time to support each other.

This unique conference will span seven weeks, and give you the opportunity to connect with chamber professionals from both states.  

This virtual conference promises to inspire and challenge you. Participants will connect with chamber influencers and peers, giving you practical takeaways on how to move your chamber and your communities FORWARD.

We hope you will join us in this exciting new venture.
