About RCC


Rainier Chamber of Commerce is the unifying voice and force for a thriving southeast Seattle.

We keep our fingers on the pulse of what’s happening in southeast neighborhoods within the City of Seattle.  The Chamber helps our members succeed in the following ways:

  • Provide opportunities for promotion and networking
  • Offer education and information programs
  • Advocate for southeast Seattle businesses and residents
  • Celebrate community and recognize achievements

“Who do you want to know?”

The Chamber offers many ways for members to network, connect, and engage with the community. We continually develop new opportunities for businesses and organizations to market their products and services, residents to thrive in our community, and visitors to learn and appreciate all that southeast Seattle offers.

“What do you need to know?”

Rainier Chamber works with several partners and sponsors to expand possibilities for commerce and residents of southeast Seattle.

Special projects including Rainier Valley Opportunity Tour, Bridge2Beach Earth Day Clean up, and Rainier Chamber University are some of the unique and interesting ways we stay involved with southeast neighborhoods.

When all the project work is done, the Chamber continues to serve members and neighborhoods by hosting community celebrations, such as the Seafair Rainier Valley Heritage Parade and Festival.
