Chamber of Commerce

Our members tell us that the West Hollywood Chamber sets the PACE for doing business in and around West Hollywood: Promotion, Advocacy, Communication and Education.

PROMOTION
No other organization does as much as we do to actively promote your business.

We utilize a variety of exclusive and highly targeted marketing vehicles including networking, special events and our website which receives over 50,000 hits a month!

ADVOCACY
We operate at the local and statewide level in order to ensure that the needs of our business owners are heard and that action is taken when necessary.

We advocate on your behalf to ensure the rest of the community understands the valuable contributions business makes as well as the economic impact each new ordinance or bill has on the entire community.

COMMUNICATIONS
We keep members informed of essential West Hollywood business issues via our newsletter and Weekly Wrap Sheet (reaches 1600 people every week).

We also let you know about other community affairs and opportunities that may impact you such as construction projects and high profile special events.

EDUCATION
We’ve created special tools and programs to help build capacity for you and your staff.

Topics include: finance, marketing, technology and other valuable business skills
