The Northern Rhode Island Chamber has been a valued partner in our agency’s growth. Chamber events allow our agents to reach a qualified audience of business professionals who are equally interested in our community’s growth. We also have found that the more a company invests in the chamber the greater the return. An investment into being an active member – attending Networking at Night, being a member of Executive Success Club, advertising in the Newsletter, being a corporate partner, to name a few – has resulted in a measurable increase in business.”
~ Brian Hunter, President Hunter Insurance, Inc.
“No other single organization has been more helpful to the growth and success of my business than the Northern RI Chamber of Commerce. When I started my business, John Gregory and Paul Ouellette went out of their way to introduce me to businesses that could utilize my services; the Chamber even hired me to produce their monthly newspaper, which was an instrumental piece of business that helped take my business to the next level. Through Chamber events like Networking at Night ours and Executive Success Club, I have been able to network and land new clients. Equally important, I have been able to receive professional counsel from attorneys, CPA's, insurance professionals, and business consultants to help me grow my business.”
~ John Houle, President JH Communications
"The Northern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce is one of the strongest advocates for the business community of Rhode Island. Under the leadership of John Gregory, Chamber President/CEO, and his professional staff of experts, the NRI Chamber is at the forefront of supporting business through their support of legislative reforms in health care, taxes, and regulatory issues. Their strong commitment to workforce development, educational initiatives and efforts to help us grow our businesses is unyielding. Hope Global is proud to be a sponsor of the NRI Chamber of Commerce for over 14 years. I have had the privilege to have served on the Board for 5 years and was honored to serve as a past Chair. Every business would benefit from a partnership with NRI Chamber of Commerce.”

"Images by Bob DiCaprio has been a member of the Northern Rhode Island Chamber since its inception. We joined the Chamber as a way to grow our business by exposing us to the business community in Northern RI . We decided from the beginning, to be active Chamber members. We knew that our business growth was not going to come just because we had a membership plaque hanging in our studio. Rather, our growth would come from what we could do for the Chamber. Volunteering for the Chamber is fun, and rewarding. Over the years, we have volunteered for a variety of projects. Bob served on the Board and as Treasurer. Sue was Chair of the Outing Committee for 10 years. We have hosted numerous Business-After-Hours, and attended countless other breakfasts, Annual Dinners, Golf Tournaments, Pawsox Outings. Bob was an original member of the first Chamber Executive Success Club, and he and Sue chaired the Chamber Dinner-Dance. Our membership has had such value for us from the very beginning, and we have gained many clients, and friends through networking and our involvement in the Chamber. The Chamber is a great investment, and getting involved is the best way to maximize your membership. "

"I hold two memberships in the Chamber, one for WNRI radio and the other for the Pillsbury House Bed and Breakfast and they serve me in two distinctive ways. For the radio station, I am always looking for new customers and chamber events bring me in contact with the potential clients and this setting makes it easier to get to meet prospects in an informal setting.For the B & B, the chamber staff directs inquiries of out of town visitors right to my website and that brings guests to the Inn . Chamber membership? Worth every dollar!"
