Rebound & Recovery

The Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the Association of Washington Business to share their comprehensive checklist and toolkit for employers to safely re-open for Phase 2. This site is complimentary for all Washington businesses to use and can be accessed here .

Attention Manufacturers: If you are now creating (or have access to produce) PPE Materials such as face masks, surgical caps, sanitizer or disinfectants, gloves, face shields, etc., please let us know! We'd like to connect you with our contacts at AWB and get you approved to be a part of their PPE RFP Portal. Businesses across the state are accessing the portal to assure they have sufficient PPE supplies as they reopen.

Annual Golf Tournament - Now at Camas Meadows!

It's time for the Chamber's Wild Wild West Annual Golf Tournament, presented by Columbia Bank! On Monday, June 22, prepare for a good ol' fashioned 18-hole tournament, now at Camas Meadows Golf Course. Some changes have been made to assure the health and safety of our players, sponsors, and staff take priority! Learn more about these adaptations, here at the Chamber's event page.

New This Year: "Shop Local, Stay Local" Baskets
To contribute to the success of our local small businesses, this year, golfers can purchase one of only 15 "Shop Local, Stay Local" Baskets. The theme of the baskets is "Everyone loves a picnic" featuring items like Grow The (360) gift certificates, picnic-ware, and upscale branded merchandise all from local businesses. Interested in contributing your business' merch? Learn more about basket donations, here.

Can't donate to a basket but would like some extra visibility?
If you have small branded items you would like to add to our Swag Bags that are gifted to every golfer, please let us know so we can set up a time for drop off. NOTE: We will not be accepting paper items for this year's Swag Bags. 150 bags will be created.
