Member Testimonials

The Puyallup Sumner Chamber of Commerce would be the first stop I would make if I were to open a new business. The chamber creates opportunities for building solid networks between industries and connects businesses with potential customers, across both Puyallup and Sumner. Since being involved with the chamber I’ve not only grown a professional network, I’ve also consistently been updated on new legislation with potential impacts on my line of work. Additionally, I’ve noticed an increase in engagement with other businesses that I typically wouldn’t have encountered; resulting in solid mutual relationships.
