Chamber Announcements
It's Official! We Are Now Rebranded As 
Bothell Kenmore Chamber of Commerce!

Since 2012 we have proudly represented two cities - Bothell and Kenmore - and we excitedly announce our new brand to properly reflect our representation and support of both cities. We are now officially the Bothell Kenmore Chamber of Commerce!

Naturally we have a new logo and it represents a fresh and modern visual identity. The color blue represents the stability and continuity of the Chamber, and the color green represents the second city, and growth and vitality of our community. The blue and green waves represent the tree-lined Burke-Gilman Trail and the Sammamish River that run parallel to one another, connect our two cities, and are such an integral part of our community. We will also be unveiling our new website soon so keep your eyes out for that as well.
  
We invite all Bothell and Kenmore area businesses and professionals to Join the Chamber, experience the benefits, add your voice to legislative influence, and show that you support other businesses and your community through involvement with the Chamber.

ATP Seeks Businesses To Host Volunteer Student Interns

The Adult Transition Program (ATP), serves students with intellectual and developmental disabilities ages 18-21. They are housed on the Bothell High School campus. Their students learn vocational skills and participate in volunteer internships at various businesses/companies in the community (Kenmore, Bothell, Woodinville). Their goal at the ATP is to help students get a paid job and/or gain the skills to be employed. 
 
At the ATP, they have two shifts of students meaning that they have two timeframes that their students intern and volunteer at the business/company. The times that their students usually intern would be roughly 8:30 - 10:30am and 12:30 - 2:30pm. Their next rotation would start in September 2018 when the new school year starts.  To learn more contact Corbin Young or call 425-408-7187.
