The Birch Bay Chamber of Commerce is committed to providing our community and our members with the best information and resources to help them deal with the COVID-19 outbreak here in Washington and Whatcom County.

Our office and Visitor Center is now closed to the public until further notice, but our staff is working remotely and will continue to support the businesses we work with via email and telephone. 

Please check this website and our Facebook page often, as we will be updating regularly. Members, and businesses in our area, if you have questions, concerns or information to share please reach out. We are working on the best ways to continue to serve you.
