Martin gives annual State of the FW Chamber address

The Greater Federal Way Chamber of Commerce celebrated a return to in-person membership luncheons Aug. 4 with the “State of the Chamber” address by CEO Rebecca Martin. Among the topics discussed at the meeting include the Chamber’s membership retention rate and its goals to accelerate the growth of business in Federal Way with help from American Rescue Plan grants. Martin also shared survey results from local businesses in response to the ongoing homelessness crisis in Federal Way. Results show business owners fear a loss of customers and also believe the city is primarily responsible for addressing homelessness. Learn more about the Federal Way Chamber at
