Wondering what to expect at the event? 

 The West Coast Chamber serves as the region's advocate for business at the local, state and federal levels. Join us at our monthly Advocacy in Action program to stay in the know about current issues that affect you and your business. Each month will feature a guest speaker on a timely topic followed by updates from our State legislators. The program provides a great avenue for dialogue between our State legislators and Chamber members. 

West Coast Chamber Policy and Protocol for in-person gatherings:

The West Coast Chamber takes the health and safety of our members, staff and host organizations very seriously. These COVID-19 measures are intended for the sole purpose of keeping those groups as safe as possible.  

The Chamber requires all attendees to wear masks at indoor programs and meetings, regardless of their vaccination status, except when actively eating or drinking. 

We are offering digital attendance options for most programs. If you feel ill or are displaying any COVID-19 symptoms or have recently come in contact with someone who has tested positive, please do not attend and instead take advantage of our digital offerings. 

If you’ve attended a recent Chamber program or meeting and later test positive for COVID-19, please let us know. 

We will continue to follow the latest guidance from the CDC and the Ottawa County Department of Public Health and will adjust these measures in the future as needed.
