Chamber of Commerce

The Renton Chamber of Commerce's mission is to improve business and economic conditions and the general welfare of the community. To that end, the Chamber is in the business of serving business, as it has for more than 100 years.  The Renton Chamber of Commerce started in 1909 as a local commercial club and then incorporated in 1943.  The Chamber offers its members leadership development, networking opportunities, advocacy, and resources to promote business prosperity.

The Chamber partners with the City of Renton, the Renton School District, Renton Technical College, Valley Medical Center, and community and business leaders to promote and sustain a healthy business environment and a vibrant community for Renton’s families and workforce. As part of this effort, each year the Chamber coordinates important events that unite the community including the Ahead of the Class Excellence in Education Awards; Business Excellence Awards; New Teachers Breakfast; Citizen of the Year Awards Banquet; Economic Forecast Luncheon; State of the City’s Economy; and it's annual Business Expo.

The members of the Renton Chamber of Commerce understand the importance of contributing to the success of the community. Representatives from world-class international corporations, large and small businesses, our local government, our Small Business Development Center, our educational institutions, and our state-of-the-art medical center are united through the Chamber to protect the economic viability of our community and keep Renton ahead of the curve.
