As an active and vibrant Chamber of Commerce, we often have many things going on each month! This page has been created to allow us to provide a spot to post upcoming events, announcements and opportunities for our membership, plus provide a place for our members to catch up on Chamber news via our @WORK member newsletter.

To the left is a list of categories; each one has a variety of posts … with the most recent posts at the top.

Thank you for your La Conner Chamber of Commerce Membership. Together We Can Do More!

Keep La Conner Beautiful!

/
Part of what draws visitors to our community during the spring and summer months is the beauty of the flowers that are grown locally. Last year we instituted a Sponsorship program and it was a huge success! Our goal is to fund 52 baskets plus the cost of daily watering. We are asking that businesses, residents and community supporters pitch in again this year and sponsor a basket. For only $75.00 you can help keep town looking beautiful throughout the season.
