    Chamber Connections is a dedicated networking group that meets twice a month. Members get to know each other and their businesses, give referrals to each other, develop strong personal and professional relationships with people in their business sphere group and grow their businesses by word of mouth.

    If you are interested in growing your business, Chamber Connections is for you.

    Over the last three years we have averaged 10 million dollars annually in closed business through referrals made within the group. We are now accepting businesses to participate in this seasoned program. We only accept two individuals for each business category so contact us now to secure your place. Contact JoAnne to sign up.

    Certificate of Origin

    A Certificate of Origin (CO) is an important international trade document attesting that goods in a particular export shipment are wholly obtained, produced, manufactured or processed in a particular county. CO's also constitute a declaration by the exporter.  Virtually every country in the world considers the origin of imported goods when determining what duty will be assessed on the goods or whether the goods may be legally imported at all.

    The Greater Newport Chamber is a key agent in the delivery of certificates of origin.  Shipping internationally?  We can assist with a CO.

    Chambers Authority - The role of chambers of commerce delivering certificates of origin can be traced back to the 1923 Geneva Convention relating to the Simplification of Customs Formalities, Article 11.

    Notary Public

    A Notary Public is an official of integrity appointed by state government —typically by the secretary of state — to serve the public as an impartial witness in performing a variety of official fraud-deterrent acts related to the signing of important documents. These official acts are called notarizations, or notarial acts. Notaries are publicly commissioned as “ministerial” officials, meaning that they are expected to follow written rules without the exercise of significant personal discretion, as would otherwise be the case with a “judicial” official.

    The Chamber has a notary on staff. Call 401-847-1608 to schedule a time with the notary in advance.
