Promoting the Community
The Mount Vernon Chamber of Commerce operates the Mount Vernon Visitor’s Information Center at 301 W. Kincaid St. in Downtown Mount Vernon, 7 days a week, year-round. Community promotion is a vital component of economic growth. Besides acting as the Gateway to Skagit County, the Chamber promotes our community and membership in a variety of ways:
- The Visitor’s Information Center sees over 55,000 people per year and receives 3,000 phone calls, from tourists to the area and locals looking for business referrals to people looking to relocate. Almost every person that comes through picks up a brochure for a business in Skagit County. It is the Mount Vernon Chamber of Commerce’s policy to refer businesses exclusively to our Chamber members.

- The Mount Vernon Chamber of Commerce hosts and updates a website,www.visitmountvernon.com, for tourism in the area. This website is promoted throughout the country at trade shows and through press releases, and you can purchase advertising for your business on this website!
- Each year, representatives from the Mount Vernon Chamber of Commerce operate trade show booths at tourism shows throughout the country and attend the National Tour Association convention to bring tours to our area. With each tour and tourist that visits Skagit County, your business gets exposure!
- The Tourism Committee works hard to promote our area through press releases, direct promotion to travel writers and travel shows, and strategically-placed advertising for our community. Get involved and promote Skagit County today!
