Business Assistance

The Chamber arranges grand openings and ribbon cutting ceremonies. First Dollar of Profit awards are presented to new businesses. The Chamber arranges a photo opportunity with the Rome Sentinel and a Chamber representative presents a framed certificate for display.  The Chamber’s conference room facilities are available to members by appointment.
