Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Center Announces Grand Opening

The new center opens at 216 E. Woodin Avenue in Chelan on April 25, 2015
LAKE CHELAN, WA (April 6, 2015) — The new Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Center opens for operation April 25, 2015, starting with a public grand opening celebration from 9:00am to 5:00pm. The Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce staff will host visitors for building tours and light snacks.
Over the past three years the Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has been working diligently to find a new home for our organization, knowing that our current lease with the Chelan County Public Utility District at 102 E. Johnson was set to expire.
The new location both accommodates our growing organization and houses our vision for a state-of-the-art visitor center that is representative of all the Lake Chelan Valley has to offer. We have been extremely fortunate to find a partner that was willing to work with us to achieve something fantastic for our community, visitors and businesses. With the support and investment of the Naur Group, LLC, we remodeled an 8,000 square foot building in the heart of downtown Chelan located at 216 E. Woodin Avenue. We have entered into a 20-year lease agreement with the buyer with the option to renew for an additional 15 years.
“We are extremely excited for the opportunities this new space will provide our organization, our membership, our visitors and our entire community. This is an exciting step forward in the growth and evolution of our organization and the Lake Chelan Valley,” says Chamber Executive Director, Mike Steele.
This new building will include office spaces, conference rooms, and a state-of-the-art Visitor Center. The office spaces will provide individual work areas for our organization’s staff. In addition, we will rent space to new or fledgling businesses. This practice, known as accelerator space, allows businesses to utilize the common resources of our building, receptionist, conference rooms, copy centers, etc.; while growing their own business. Once they have developed a solid foundation, they will move out of the building to find their own space.
The Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce has also received tremendous support from the business community of the valley. The sponsorship of different spaces of the building by local businesses have allowed us to reach our goal of creating something that is a community asset, an impressive visitor experience and great resources for our businesses. We would like to thank the Port of Chelan County, Sage Vacation Rentals, Coldwell Banker Lake Chelan Properties, Chelan County Public Utility District, My Chelan Vacation, Tsillan Cellars, and Chelan Rotary for their generous support.
