It’s not “Live to Work” or “Work to Live”… Discover YOUR “Live AND Work” Adventure in the Columbia River Gorge

Employment opportunities abound in our region with strong tourism, forest and fruit products industries, and rapid growth in technology, materials, and recreation. 

Entrepreneurs and established businesses are attracted by Washington State’s lack of a personal income tax, a large well-trained labor pool, strong support organizations and industries, and by lower rents and greater space availability than much of the surrounding region. 

And the peerless lifestyle opportunities for living and working in the Gorge are immensely attractive and a strong retention incentive for both employees and owners.

The Chamber and our members represent a broad cross-section of businesses and industries that support our communities, each other, and  new arrivals in the area. Let us help you find local businesses and services to fit your needs.
