President's Message

Welcome to the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce’s new website!

We are a group of over 100 members dedicated to supporting local businesses and service organizations in our area.  Together in collaborating with service agencies and groups, we strive to keep Oceanside a vibrant and exciting place to live.

Here's a few of the many things that our group is responsible for:
  • We help new businesses get to know the community through ribbon cutting ceremonies, publicity and social media posts.
  • Offer scholarships to graduating high school seniors.
  • Co-sponsor of local events including the Memorial Day Parade and Holiday Tree-Lighting.
  • Provide funds to the Oceanside Warriors, a group dedicated to cleaning and beautifying Oceanside.
  • Maintain the Triangle Lighthouse in the center of town.
  • Host monthly networking events throughout the year.
  • We arranged for local artists to showcase their work in storefronts across Oceanside through our new partnership with West End Arts, Visual Artist Guild.

We welcome new members, whether you are a business owner or just an interested resident.  I ask for all who want to be involved and get to know each other, to join   the chamber, whether you are a seasoned business or new to the community.
I want to thank all of you for your support and especially want to thank the Board of Directors for all their efforts and countless volunteer hours in promoting our business community and strengthening community relationships.
We look to grow the Chamber and have more business support from shopping locally.   Your dollars will keep our town economically healthy and create jobs for our residents, which benefits all our community members.

Best Regards,
Paul Engel, President
