About the Neighborhood: Capitol Hill has the highest concentration of small businesses in Washington State. This neighborhood is one of the city’s most economically and culturally important business districts, as well as Seattle’s historic epicenter for the LGBTQ business and residential community.

Capitol Hill is where Seattleites work, live, or travel to for its thriving business, education, restaurant, arts, and nightlife scene.

Programs and Events

Look for CHBA programs every 3rd Thursday of the month.

CHBA Hill Talks

Quarterly in-person networking opportunities where Civic and Community engagement intertwine. The goal of these events is to bring the business owners and operators of the neighborhood together to strengthen connections and collaboration. Two of our annual HillTalks include: a Civic Engagement reception in which primary election candidates come to meet with and hear from the business community and our Who’s Who on Capitol Hill which brings together the larger organizing entities (like the BIAs and Cal Anderson Park Alliance) to share their major initiatives with attendees.

CHBA Community Conversations

Monthly virtual listening and discussion forum where business community members gather around a central topic to share top of mind concerns, needs and goals.

CHBA Safety Forum

The Chamber’s response to the complex and ever present matter of safety. At this forum we engage with the topic in a way that broadens the conversation to include tangible tools for everyday use. This forum provides small business owners and operators a day of education, resource development and relationship building around with sessions like “Security Basics” and “Bystander Intervention Training”. CHBA brings you this program annually in October.
