 The 2023 Legislative Session has kicked off!
The 2023 Legislative session has kicked off and there will be many important issues decided during the next 100 days or so. Over the course of this session, the Legislature will review hundreds of bills.

The South Kitsap Chamber in conjunction with the Association of Washington Businesses will be following many of the bills that deal with many different business issues.

I would encourage you to sign up for our Governmental Affairs update emails. Once more information becomes available on current bills we will also post updates on our Governmental Affairs page.

The GA page also has information about contacting local legislators, AWB legislative priorities, and links to additional bill information.

2023 Directory and Community Guide
Time to get serious! Let's do this....

In early 2020 we published our community guide and business directory, and for the last 3 years we have been distributing it. Our 2020 directories are running low and we really need to create an updated book. 

For 2023 we are changing things up a little bit... By creating
two publications.

The first publication will be a Community Guide, which will be updated and generic. It will contain information on the area, events, neighborhoods, and other useful community information. We will be able to use this same publication for multiple years.

The second publication will be the Business Directory containing all of our members and services in it. This publication will be updated yearly.
Large advertisements will already be included in both publications. Smaller advertisers will have the option to be in one, or both, publications.

The deadline is fast approaching... Contact Matt at the Chamber office today!
