The Port Orchard Chamber of Commerce (POCOC) has been supporting local business in the community since 1890. Originally known as the Sidney Commerce Booster Club, the Chamber has maintained a strong legacy of enhancing and strengthening business since its humble beginnings.
We are a private, non-profit, membership-driven organization comprised of 340 business enterprises, civic organizations, education institutions and individuals.
The POCOC is represented by an elected 15 member Board of Directors. We work for and with our business community by partnering with local businesses, professionals, city and county government, community groups, and the military. Through cooperative partnerships we proactively promote and encourage healthy business growth, foster leadership and professional development, and are dedicated to promoting businesses and community efforts that enhance Port Orchard and the South Kitsap Region.
WHAT WE DO
To ensure a business-friendly climate in South Kitsap, the Chamber provides a variety of programs, services, and beneﬁts designed to increase its members' exposure with networking and busines to business opportunities. In addition, we work to provide a voice for businesses in our local government to help them grow and thrive, and through communications keep members informed about local community, regional, business, legislative, and Chamber activity.
