Kent is the sixth largest city in Washington and the third largest city in King County with a population of 132,319 and covers a geographic area of 34 square miles. A culturally rich destination, Kent features captivating neighborhoods, award-winning parks, exceptional school districts and nationally accredited police and fire departments. 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 and 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.

Hello,

My name is Zenovia Harris and in March of 2019 I became the new Chief Executive Officer of the Kent Chamber of Commerce.  I am excited to assist in making the Kent Chamber of Commerce the premier organization in South King County ensuring a healthy and vibrant business community.  The Chamber represents and protects your business by working hard to support every aspect of doing business in the Kent Valley. The Kent Chamber is the voice and ears of the community, responsive to its ever-changing needs and concerns.  We pride ourselves in bringing the business community together in a dynamic and profitable way.

It is an exciting time to be a member of the Kent Chamber of Commerce.  We are creating new networking and promotional opportunities to help our member businesses succeed and grow.  Some of these include advertising on the Chamber website, business referrals, monthly networking opportunities, and continuing education.

We continue to partner with local government and other organizations to pursue improvements in the overall quality of life for the city, particularly in the areas of education, tourism, economic development, and workforce development.  Our success in achieving our mission and purpose is due to a collaborative effort from the Chamber Board of Directors, Chamber Committee members, Chamber members, and area professionals.

To our current Chamber members, thank you for your continued support.  For those of you considering relocating your business or opening a new business in Kent, you will find that becoming a Chamber member is of great value to you.  Kent is thriving, join us as we continue to grow!
