This year, national Small Business Week falls during the same week that the Rochester area welcomed its first membership drive in 1955. During the campaign, RRCC Board members, Ambassadors, and staff members will be inviting businesses to become members of the Chamber.

Partnering with the chamber has helped business and nonprofits of all sizes. “Being a member of the Rochester Regional Chamber of Commerce provides a unique value for Oakland University by giving us another outlet and forum to share our campus news and events with members of the community,” said Brian Bierley, Director of Media Relations at Oakland University. “The Chamber helps connect the city’s business community with that of education, health care and other important community organizations that support a successful Rochester.”
