Director Message

This month we were proud to announce the City of Ocean Shores as the Ocean Shores/North Beach Chamber of Commerce Business of the Quarter. The City employees, officials, and volunteers have been very active in supporting this wonderful community on many different aspects and we are excited to see this support continue and grow.

We also had a very exciting Business After Hours located at the Coastal Interpretive Center where current Board President Jim Nagan, Past President Nancy Eldridge, and Vice-President/Volunteer Coordinator Nina Chalupnik spoke on the history and future of this fantastic local gem.

If your business would like to host an after hours, please contact the Chamber office at 360-289-2451 or Business after Hours is a wonderful opportunity to showcase your business and network with the local community.

This is an exciting time to be a part of the Ocean Shores/North Beach Chamber of Commerce, we are continuing to grow and improve, from our membership base to our events and finally, to our growing Board of Directors who are working tirelessly to make sure the Chamber of Commerce is serving our Mission to the best of our ability. Speaking of Board of Directors, I would like to give a warm welcome to our latest elected member, Steve Borba of Ocean Shores Boat House. Steve has a passion to educate and involve the community and tourists in the fresh water canals, he is full of great ideas and he is a welcome addition as both Chamber Member and Board Member.

I would also like to extend an invite out to the community, for anyone who may have interest in volunteering at our Chamber office. As an office volunteer you can choose to come in all day from 10-4 or part day, on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, or Friday. The volunteer job description would include light clerical work including answering the phone, welcoming visitors, answering questions, light computer work, and keeping up with the rack cards. If you are interested or maybe know someone who is, please call me at the Chamber at 360-289-2451 or email me at
