Lori Cadwell Retiring - Brittany Caldwell Named New Executive Director
GBCC Logo Black
Lori Cadwell, Executive Director for the Greater Bothell Chamber of Commerce announced her retirement to the Chamber's Board of Directors in September, to be effective December 31, 2015.

Lori has been the Director since the Chamber's inception and is largely responsible for its success. Eleven years ago, what began as a downtown merchants association, launched the Greater Bothell Chamber of Commerce with just 20 members.  Since then, Lori has worked with the community, the City of Bothell, the City of Kenmore and many organizations to grow from 20 members to nearly 300. Lori has personified the mission of the Chamber which is to network and grow your business by engaging with other Chamber members and the community. Under Lori's direction, events such as the Annual Chamber Open House have given not only business members, but residents an opportunity to see the multitude of businesses and services within the Greater Bothell community.

Lori has also been instrumental in establishing the annual Wine Walks on Main Street and within Country Village as well as the Bothell Beer Festival -- all very successful community events. Board members past and present greatly thank Lori for her years of dedication and service to the Chamber.  Lori will be working with the Chamber through January to help with the transition.

New Executive Director: Brittany Caldwell

The Greater Bothell Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the selection of Brittany Caldwell as Executive Director for the Chamber. Brittany has been the Director of Operations for the Chamber and a staff member for over eight years. Lori and Brittany have worked as a team for many years and Brittany is the perfect individual to lead this Chamber into our second decade of operation.

Please RSVP to join us in celebrating Lori for her hard work and dedication at Alexa's Café on Wednesday, February 3rd from 5:00 - 8:00 PM. Please RSVP to

Shout Out

"Have you visited The Recology Store, next to QFC in Canyon Park?  They have tons of useful items from beautiful recycled leather notebooks to great cleaning products.  I purchased an e-cloth for cleaning windows and the results where AMAZING!  No chemicals or sprays - just use water and two special cloths and you will have the brightest, cleanest, most streak free windows you have ever seen!"
