MEMBERS are the driving force behind the Chamber. Each year, with member input, the Chamber adopts a business plan to be carried out by nearly 600 members and the professional staff. Members serve on committees and elect a Board of Directors.
Rome Chamber Members are better informed, have a stronger voice, and take effective action to make a difference within the local and regional community!

Chamber members are investors in the economic health and growth of our community. The Chamber is actively involved in new business development, and retention and expansion of existing businesses.
The Chamber does collectively what individual companies cannot do - speak out loudly, clearly and regularly on behalf of business - to encourage approval of laws that will help business and oppose those that are detrimental to business.
BUSINESS BEFORE AND AFTER HOURS
Members are invited to attend BBH and BAH receptions, and are encouraged to consider hosting a BBH or BAH to showcase their businesses. Chamber member businesses host the receptions at their company offices or approved locations, inviting Chamber members and guests. These events can be informal and fun networking opportunities or seminar-style informative, and educational meetings. Call to find out how you can show off your business!
