Are you hoping to grow your local business through networking, getting to know the Woodinville community, having someone to advocate for your business at City Council, looking for other promotional opportunities, or do you simply want to support the local economy in Woodinville? Then you’ve come to the right place!
Did you know? A national survey of 2,000 adults conducted by the Schapiro Group showed that 80% of consumers were more likely to purchase a product or service from a Chamber member. The study shows that joining a Chamber is an effective business strategy because consumers believe that such companies use good business practices, are reputable, care about their customers, and are involved in the community. We agree!
