Your Kent Washington Chamber of Commerce!
Kent is the sixth largest city in Washington with a population of 119,100. A culturally rich destination, Kent features captivating neighborhoods, award-winning parks, exceptional school districts and nationally accredited police and fire departments. In recent years, Kent has experienced impressive economic growth, and is nationally known as a prime location for manufacturing.
At the Kent Chamber of Commerce, we bring the business community together in dynamic, profitable ways. Whether members are networking with one another, learning marketing tips, immersing themselves in issues that impact business, or tapping into an array of educational services, we give local business owners the tools to help them thrive. When members of the community have a problem and don't know what to do, they call their local chamber, and the Kent Chamber receives thousands of those calls each year.

The Kent business community is one of the most dynamic in the State of Washington. With over 1,800 businesses with sales of $500,000 to $50 Million and over 70,000 workers, the Kent commercial base is equal to both Auburn and Renton combined. The Kent Chamber of Commerce is doing a great job of representing the various interests in our business community with the City of Kent, King County and the State of Washington. That is why every business in Kent should be a member of the Kent Chamber of Commerce!Mike Miller

There are so many benefits to being an active member of the Kent Chamber I can’t even begin to list them all. Being a part of the Kent Chamber has allowed me the opportunity to meet people and learn about businesses I might not otherwise have been able to do. Being a part of the Chamber has provided so many networking opportunities and the chance to make new friends. Being a member of the Kent Chamber has brought me closer to my community and allowed me to grow as a professional.

As a younger professional the Chamber has given me a better perspective of how important it is to get involved and discuss the issues that we are seeing all over Kent, not just in our office of business. Education, Transportation and taxes affect all aspects of what we do and it is nice to know that I have the Kent Chamber as a resource on anything I have questions on. I also know that they will advocate for me when it makes business sense. My experience with the Kent Chamber and networking has proven to be priceless for the two years Pegasus NW have been members.Christina Palstring

Since becoming an active member in the Kent Chamber I have been amazed at the amount of referrals from other members through the numerous Chamber events created to get to know and work with other people in the business community. Maintaining a membership has been a fantastic vehicle to become [known] to local businesses and to get involved in worthwhile community events; all while having a great time! The annual membership fee has always more than paid for itself. I have owned and operated my business with my husband and partner, John Hatcher, for twenty years now; and one of the reasons we continue to grow is because of our membership in the Kent Chamber of Commerce.Amy Hatcher
