The Chamber maintains a staffed office and Visitor Information Center in downtown Cashmere where the Chamber Manager answers any business and visitor inquiries and forwards callers to the appropriate business. Member businesses are always referred first!
All members are entitled to a complete business listing in our online Member Directory. This includes company logo, contact information, website and social media links.
The Chamber works to ensure you are informed on important developments in the community and are aware of issues affecting area businesses. We do this through our monthly e-newsletter, and select mass email communications.
Members are invited to submit their events to our online Events Calendar – the ONLY online calendar exclusively serving the greater Cashmere area.
Cashmere’s natural beauty and central location make it an ideal stop for visitors to the area. We work year-round through to encourage tourists to visit the Cashmere area, thereby increasing the tourism dollars in the local economy. As a member, you are entitled to use our Visitor’s Information Center to display your business cards and brochures for walk-in visitors looking for goods and services. The Visitor’s Center also includes tourist literature from the state and immediate area. We mail relocation and visitor’s packets to people throughout the United States. We also produce the Discover Cashmere Map & Brochure (PDF) – the ONLY brochure highlighting Cashmere’s tourism related businesses.
Advocacy – We Work with You & for You
The Chamber works with the City of Cashmere and the Port of Chelan County to bring new businesses to the area. We are a resource to help local businesses or potential new businesses by connecting them to such organizations as SCORE and the Small Business Development Center as well as other local, state, and federal resources.
The Chamber hosts bi-annual General Membership Meetings for the entire membership. This is a time to gather and talk about what direction the Chamber is headed. It’s also a time to network with your fellow Chamber members. The Chamber also sponsors a Business After Hours program, an important networking tool. And when you join the Chamber you have access to the Chamber’s mailing list, which includes all members.
Members have the option of offering special discounts or offers to other members of the Chamber community. This is a great way to highlight your business, network with other member businesses, and add value to Chamber memberships in general.
The Chamber currently partners with Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort to offer two partner passes for Chamber members, their family, and friends. Passes are available at the ski area ticket office on a first-come first-served basis and are good any day Mission Ridge is open. Interested members just need to contact the Chamber office to reserve them ahead of time and we will let Mission Ridge know you are coming.
The Chamber also currently partners with the Numerica Performing Arts Center (PAC) to offer free tickets to selected shows. Available tickets are advertised via mass email to membership and distributed on a first-come first-served basis.
