We are here to go to bat for you in your industry. We want to address the things that matter and effect your organization – we have a Legislative Committee that goes to Olympia on your behalf. We work with other Chambers and Coalitions to make sure we cover area-wide issues that affect business.
We have over 90 events throughout the course of the year, from after-hours, community events, networking breakfasts, to a host of Chamber-driven activities that include opportunities to get your sales teams or staff face-to-face with the public and to get to know other Chamber members.
Your membership includes a free listing in our Membership Directory, which is updated annually and is readily available online. Printed copies are distributed to businesses and organizations regionally, including the Office of the Mayor, Renton City Council, and to other influential community leaders.
We turn the spotlight on Chamber member businesses every other month with a Business Spotlight feature article, providing both exposure and an opportunity to learn more about your fellow Renton Chamber members in the community.
We also provide other spotlight opportunities at our networking events, in newsletters, on our social media sites, and as a lead speaker at one of our many networking breakfasts.
If you are interested in being highlighted in a Member SpotLight, please contact our office.
You will have the ability to jump in and sponsor events throughout the year. Your company can sponsor and host an after-hours event at your place of business where all the membership comes for our large monthly networking events. There will likely be 80-100+ people at these events. Great exposure!

Certificates of Origin
A Certificate of Origin (COO) is an important international trade document attesting that goods in a particular export shipment have been wholly obtained, produced, manufactured or processed in a particular country. It is also a declaration by the exporter. Virtually every country in the world considers the origin of imported goods when determining what duty will be assessed on the goods or, in some cases, whether the goods may be legally imported at all. The 1923 Geneva Convention named Chambers of Commerce the official body to issue, sign and stamp Certificates of Origin worldwide. Click here for more info.
