Beth Pratt - Executive Director

In November of 2021, the Chamber hired Beth Pratt to take the reins as Executive Director. As the year drew to a close, Beth and staff were able to bring back volunteers to keep the Visitor Information Center open during historically regular hours, and re-started all in-person events for the Chamber. Getting the members back together, building their networks, was one of the most rewarding results of this initial effort.

Since that first year, Beth has updated the Chamber's digital footprint, added programs and workshops, created an annual digital magazine and published new videos to introduce our community to the Chamber. She has been instrumental in working to change county and city code enforcement and zoning policies, and has been part of the team working to restrain WSDOT projects that would negatively impact the economy of the Olympic Peninsula.

Visitor Center Volunteers

Our volunteers staff the Visitor & Information Center - welcoming tourists, new residents, and folks seeking information about all things Sequim. They answer phones, make recommendations on the best local spots, give advise on where to find information, and all in all share the welcoming and friendly spirit of our town. Many of our volunteers first came here as visitors and are eager to share their experience with more people coming to Sequim. We are always looking for more smiling faces to join us! If you are interested contact our office manager and complete the application below.



Our ambassadors are a group of business leaders and community members who help us highlight the successes of our local businesses, celebrate milestones and achievements, and overall bring a positive spirit to festivals and events across town. They are always ready to bring the big purple ribbon and scissors to ceremonially open any event or location! To participate contact our Membership Manager and we will put you in touch with the committee chair.

Community Volunteer Efforts

Our fearless weed patrol leader Emily Westcott coordinates community service workers, volunteers and concerned citizens to make sure that Sequim looks beautiful year round. You can often see these folks cleaning up vacant properties, hanging christmas lights, and Emily even spearheads the summer flower basket program each year. If you want to help keep Sequim beautiful contact our office manager and we will get you involved with this program. As Emily says "We don't do weeds here".

In addition to town beautification, Emily coordinates the Flower Basket Program, Holiday Lights, and Community Service Hours.
