  • The Chamber as a force for economic betterment

    The Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce (GPCC) is a membership association of Rhode Island companies and organizations and one of the largest statewide chambers of commerce in the Northeast.

    Our work focuses on matters that are top-of-mind in business circles today, with emphasis on new business development, peer-to-peer connections and advocacy on legislative and regulatory issues.

    We also offer a one-stop resource for small business assistance, cost-effective programs and first-hand insights from subject matter experts and top business and civic leaders.

    Our members are dedicated to helping each other succeed and to using our collective voice to shape an economically resilient and competitive Rhode Island.
