Our activities are designed to connect you with potential clients and customers. Chamber members meet each Friday morning at a different member business for Networking, bringing together over 70 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, positioning their business to be the first choice for a customer’s needs.
- Members can promote their business through a variety of 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. Bordering the maps includes business advertising, a calendar of events plus pictures and copy about Lake Oswego.
- Sponsorships: These are available for all Chamber events and programs, 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.
The Chamber advocates for businesses at City Hall, before the County Commissioners, Metro, state legislators and your congressional delegation. We actively support businesses looking to relocate to Lake Oswego and help existing businesses that are seeking information or solutions to issues affecting their business.
