Make an Investment in Your Community... and Your Business
"I joined the Chamber to contribute to community while helping my business grow. A double win!
Central Rhode Island Chamber staff and volunteers invested 3,304 hours in strengthening our region and building partnerships last year. And this doesn’t include troubleshooting for members – a real benefit, when the system bites back. Oh the phone calls I’ve heard!
I’ve been a member for 23 years. Considering the modest dues, I can’t even calculate the ROI (the number would be so big, you just wouldn’t believe it). So check out the Central Rhode Island Chamber for yourself."
