Southern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce

Southern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce supports and enhances the business community of Southern Rhode Island and creates opportunities for the growth and development of its member businesses. Our chamber offers advocacy, connections, education, credibility and referrals for its member businesses along with many other benefits. We are a powerful alliance of more than 550 local business, non-profits and organizations, both large and small.

One of the pillars of that alliance is our Business & Community Guide, a tool we use to drive business to each other’s company through referrals and a sense of “shop local first”. One of the greatest strengths of our Chamber is that we encourage our membership to patronize their fellow members, with the understanding that they will in turn patronize them when the need for their company arises. This Guide is a one stop listing of all the products and services our Member’s may need. We also connect your business to our communities: so whether someone is looking for a new place to call home, a vacation destination, or the right place to start or grow their business, the Southern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce Business & Community Guide is their “go to” list.

A new initiative that we are pleased to announce is our mobile app. Our chamber is working to bring you the very best in mobile applications. All of our members will receive a listing in our new mobile app with links to business websites, maps of their location and much more. Check out our website for details in the coming weeks.

The chamber works to promote its member businesses. One way is which we do this is through our signature events.
