For almost 100 years, the Greater Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce has dedicated its mission to serving businesses, improving community vitality, and fueling economic prosperity. Through advocacy in community initiatives that serve the common good, member programs that deliver topics of relevance, and opportunities to engage businesses, the Chamber remains a resilient, rallying force behind economic vitality for our region. The Greater Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce was founded on May 25, 1921 in Greenacres by a group of business leaders who saw the need for an organization to represent business interests in the Spokane Valley. The Chamber incorporated as a 501(c)(6) business league, serving businesses and organization members throughout the Greater Spokane Valley, including the cities of Spokane Valley, Millwood and Liberty Lake and unincorporated areas of Spokane County. Spokane Valley Chamber membership is available for any business, organization or retiree that desires a business presence in the Spokane Valley—regardless of their geographic origin.
A vital and vibrant community for all.
We are the catalyst for building relationships, driving collaboration, and championing opportunity for the Greater Spokane Valley.
