The Tualatin Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to the businesses who have trusted us to work on their behalf. We advocate for business in government affairs that may cause challenges for commerce. We promote our businesses and look for ways to give them more exposure in the local community. We build educational opportunities for learning new best practices in business. And we create networking opportunities where we can help our businesses connect with their best client or customer.

Supporting our Tualatin businesses requires an enormous amount of work. To accomplish this, we depend on our volunteer committees, who do amazing work every week, but more than that, we rely on those we contract with or hire as an employee of the organization.
