Welcome to the Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce!
We hope you enjoy visiting our website and find great value in being a member of one of Rhode Island’s largest (and the best) advocacy organizations formed to enhance the business, civic and economic vitality of our Greater Newport communities!
You will find an amazing team of professionals dedicated to serving you, our members! In addition, our member organizations are among the state’s strongest and most talented.
You have the distinct honor of joining an organization that has been a key part of this community for more than 100 years!
Our Chamber stands apart! We serve a diversified portfolio of members across Greater Newport, we are a world class destination with valued assets and the quality of life to work, play and live is second to none. We’ve weathered the pandemic and are positioned to come out even stronger. We’ve proven our value as the go-to partner to serve our members and community during these challenging times.
Chamber membership is a participatory role. I encourage you to be active and you will find great value in your membership. Join us as we Advocate, Innovate, Connect and Enhance our Greater Newport business community. Volunteer for a committee and share your voice and the voice of all of our businesses as we debate policies and encourage economic growth in our communities.
I’ve been involved with Chambers for well over two decades and am pleased to bring my experiences with large industry (Fidelity Investments), Higher Education (Bryant University), nonprofits (United Way, Boys & Girls Clubs), small business and the government sector to serve our community. Please take an active role and share your experiences, talents and knowledge as we position our Greater Newport Region for economic growth and excellence!
Once again, Congratulations and Thank you for being a part of our Greater Newport Chamber family!
