About Us

The Chamber’s roots trace back to 1819 when organized as the Albany Chamber of Commerce and Public Improvement.

The Capital Region Chamber’s goal is economic prosperity – for our business members and our community.

The Chamber helps build a strong community by connecting our members to people, business and issues important to business success. Through the Chamber, you and your business are engaged in initiatives that move us toward a successful future.

We represent 2,600 businesses and organizations from throughout the Capital Region – Albany, Saratoga, Schenectady and Rensselaer Counties and beyond – that employ more than 150,000 area residents. We provide leadership and resources to grow member businesses and our regional economy.

The Capital Region Chamber enables for-profit and nonprofit businesses of all types and sizes to accomplish more together than may have been possible on their own.
