About the Chamber

To unify the Niagara River Region and to promote it as a premiere place to live, work and play while promoting tourism, business development, quality of life and the history and culture of the region.


The Niagara River Region Chamber of Commerce serves the Niagara region and beyond. We represent the interests of small business, industry, and financial services, not for profits, tourism, religious organizations, and healthcare professionals. We are dedicated to serving our members through a diverse menu of programs and services available through our organization.

We have many committees that members can serve on!  What skill set do you excel in that you could share with us?  We will put it to use!

Committees meet monthly or every other month: 

Government Affairs
Lewiston Business Group

Through partnerships with regional organizations and through positive relationships with elected leaders, the Niagara River Region Chamber of Commerce maintains a consistent and positive presence in Western New York.
