Join the Tillamook Chamber of Commerce in a casual evening gathering to connect and celebrate some of our members and small businesses from the Rising Tide Society. Light beverages and snacks will be available. The goal of the evening is not to recruit people for Rising Tide, but rather highlight how many of the businesses that make up Rising Tide are collaborators with other businesses in the community. “Creative Entrepreneurs” is how members of the Rising Tide Society would identify. A collection of photographers, designers, florists, painters, artists, writers, and creators, Rising Tiders often have incredible niche businesses that operate without a brick and mortar storefront. A national organization with local chapters in many communities, each month the Rising Tide Society gathers for a supportive group meeting that focuses on business development. The core tenant of Rising Tide is “collaboration over competition,” a sentiment that reflects the community values of the Tillamook Area Chamber of Commerce.
