    NEWPORT — The chamber of commerce is making some changes.

    After nearly a year of work, the Newport County Chamber of Commerce has changed its name and unveiled a new logo.

    The chamber will know be known at the Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce.

    The change comes after the “an extensive strategic planning process last year to better identify the organization’s purpose, mission and vision.”

    The process included focus groups, a survey of membership and concluded with a vote by the chamber’s Board of Directors. Following an RFP process in the spring, Lakuna Designs, a Newport based firm, was selected to support the re-brand efforts.

    “This is the first step in re-positioning that we will introduce at our annual meeting in January 2020, as the organization enters its 100th year in operation,” the chamber said in a statement.
