5. 2019 Year in Review
2019 was a transformational year for the Bellevue Chamber.
There's never been a more important time for strong leadership from the business community. Together, we will help build a region that is inclusive, prosperous, and retains the best of what we've been as we envision what we can become.
See what we've been up to in 2019 to get ready for this challenge and how we've rebuilt the Chamber to be more relevant, higher-impact, and more fun in the year ahead.
