What We Have To Offer
Our activities are designed to connect you with potential clients, customers and suppliers. Chamber members meet Friday morning or evening at a different member business for Networking. These events bring together dozens of business leaders each week, making it one of the largest networking groups in the Metro area! In addition, there are a host of Chamber events, committees and task forces throughout the year that offer members a chance to make new contacts and friends, impact community growth, and position their business to be the first choice for a customer’s needs.
Members can promote their business through a variety of “public visibility” means:
- Business Directory: The Chamber’s Business Directory is Lake Oswego’s most sought after resource for business information, printing 10,000+ copies of this annual resource and duplicated visibility on two websites.
- Community Map: One side of this full color glossy map features the Lake Oswego city limits, highlighting street names and points of interest. The other side places Lake Oswego within the context of the metro region. Borders of the maps include business advertising and a calendar of events plus pictures and information about Lake Oswego.
- Sponsorships: These are available for all Chamber events and programs at a variety of levels, providing an excellent way to link your business to an event or program that is meaningful to you and highly regarded by the Lake Oswego community.
Both political and community leadership are demonstrated by the Chamber’s active partnerships with the:
- City of Lake Oswego

- Lake Oswego Corporation
- Arts Council of Lake Oswego
- Lake Oswego Library
- Lake Oswego School District
- Lakewood Center for the Performing Arts
