E.N. Hurd organized the Breakwater Association, forerunner of the Seaside Chamber of Commerce sometime around 1910. Although detractors at the time called it “Hurd’s Folly”. The Breakwater organization was responsible later for pushing the Seaside Promenade to completion. The Seaside Chamber of Commerce was first organized on April 15, 1936 with a staff of one person. Today, the Seaside Chamber of Commerce has flourished and has become a strong advocate for business in Seaside. In 2009, the Seaside Chamber of Commerce was presented with the Oregon State Chamber of Commerce Outstanding Achievement Award.
In 2009 our economic impact to Seaside and the surrounding area was estimated at $10M annually.
