The SLU Chamber Office has moved!

The SLU Chamber offices have relocated to 300 8th Ave N, Suite T, Seattle, WA 98109. We're on the corner of 8th & Thomas, one block West of the our past location.

Our mailing address, PO Box 9411, remains the same.
We may experience limited office hours and availability as we continue to settle into our new space. We appreciate your patience during this transition and look forward to seeing you in our new offices soon!
Host a SLU Chamber Event
The Events Committee is busy working on our 2014 SLU Chamber events calendar. Would you like to feature your venue or business to members of our community and host a breakfast, lunch or mixer next year? Please contact our events committee co-chair, Elisabeth Hamon, and let her know.  She is happy to discuss sponsor benefits and event guidelines.

Wells Fargo Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony

Last month we officially welcomed Wells Fargo to South Lake Union. SLU Chamber and Seafair were invited to help cut the ribbon at the grand opening celebration.

Welcome to the neighborhood!

Farewell, Christi Matthews!

We'd like to express our gratitude to the service of Christi Matthews. Christi is relocating, and therefore will be stepping out of her role as president. Christi offered her incredible expertise to our Board during her tenure, and we are grateful for all she has done to help our Chamber grow. Michelle Sievers of PEMCO will be stepping in as our new SLU Chamber Board President.
Valley Street is Open!


On September 20, after being closed for about a year, Valley Street reopened to traffic. This is a big milestone in our neighborhood, especially for businesses in that immediate area. Learn more. 

Pedestrian Counts in SLU up 81%

The Downtown Seattle Association takes pedestrian counts a couple times a year to give a snapshot of how busy key intersections are. The corner of Westlake Ave and Denny Way is up 81% in August 2013 over August 2012. Take a look at the full analysis.
