The Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce was founded during the height of Rhode Island’s industrial prosperity in 1868. Our mission, then and now, is to be the voice for commerce and private sector business in our community.
The Chamber is financially strong with more than 1500 member-companies located throughout Rhode Island and beyond. Our staff of 12 is composed of experts in economic development, government affairs, small business and communications and is led by a Certified Chamber Executive.
Our headquarters is located at 30 Exchange Terrace in Providence which once housed the historic Union Station railroad depot. In the mid-1980s, after the train tracks were relocated, the Chamber bought the building at the west end of the Romanesque complex. That move catalyzed the redevelopment of an important urban corridor. Today, Commerce Center sits at the confluence of the city’s financial, retail, jewelry and knowledge districts.
Hours of Operation:
The Chamber is located in downtown Providence at 30 Exchange Terrace, 4th Floor. We are open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For more information call 401-521-5000 or click here to access our staff directory.
