Member Success Stories
Membership in the West Coast Chamber can benefit you and your business in many ways! Hear what our current members have to say.
Escape Ministries has been active member of the Michigan West Coast Chamber of Commerce for many years. I joined the Chamber to represent the diversity in the community. Joining the Chamber gives me the opportunity to be involved and reflect my business and values in the Holland. In 2016 I received the Minority Business Champion Award, which was a direct reflection of my mission for unification within the community. I am thankful for the work that the West Coast Chamber continues to do to shine light on minorities. Escape Ministries’ mission is to provide troubled youth with positive opportunities to be involved with, in return creating a united community. I appreciate the Chamber’s initiative and willingness to support our work helping make Escape Ministries successful.

Teddy’s Transport has been a member of the chamber since 1992. I have gotten so much out of their programs, from networking to their Michigan West Coast Leadership program, which I highly recommend for everyone to take! You just need to join and get involved, it will help you possibly attain more business, get some marketing and learn something in the process. I would recommend the chamber to anyone who wants to succeed!

As a long term Chamber member I really appreciate the networking opportunities, and the opportunities to learn from superb speakers. The new West Coast Cash program is wonderful, and we are excited to be in on the ground floor, and to help the Chamber grow this program.
The Chamber is the voice of the business community not only in Washington, but in Lansing, and locally here in West Michigan. As a small business we need that voice, because we do not have the resources to accomplish that on our own.
