Our mission is to champion our communities' economic and cultural vitality through education, advocacy and networking.
The Charles River Regional Chamber (formerly the Newton-Needham Regional Chamber) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(6) organization funded by memberships, sponsorships, programming revenue and advertising. Our members represent everything from multigenerational family businesses and multinational companies to start-ups, educational institutions and other nonprofits. They’re based in village and town centers, commercial districts, office parks and home offices throughout Newton, Needham, Watertown and Wellesley. They come from other communities too, choosing to belong to this chamber because they see opportunities here.
