The Northern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce strengthens the economic climate through business leadership that fosters member and community prosperity.

Legislative Reception

This special evening event is held each March at the Rhode Island State House in the Governor's State Room and in the State House Rotunda.

Hundreds of business leaders and dozens of elected officials from throughout the state attend this annual event. The reception affords Chamber members the opportunity to meet in an informal and relaxed setting with their own state legislators as well as other members of the General Assembly, statewide elected officers and federal elected officials and discuss issues and concerns affecting the business community. The invitation to the reception is sent to all members of the General Assembly, each of the five state general officers and the four members of RI’s Congressional delegation. Chamber members certainly look forward to this annual gathering.

To make it easier for Chamber members to attend, free valet parking is available at the Smith Street entrance of the State House. Complimentary Hors d'oeuvres and host bar are also provided.
