The NORTH KINGSTOWN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE is one of Rhode Island’s leading business 400+ membership organizations, which includes Quonset Business Park that employs more than 10,000 people within over 200 businesses.
As the Executive Director, Kristin Urbach is a strong advocate for businesses of all sizes by providing them the necessary tools, networking, and professional development programs. Most recently, Kristin designed and executed the Chamber’s Take it Outside and Business Technical Assistance grants.
Since 1929, the NK Chamber of Commerce has pivoted throughout the decades to provide meaningful programs based on membership feedback and economic trends. At the start of the pandemic, the Chamber pivoted by providing PPE for businesses and robust virtual programs including IT consulting and grant support services.
“Kristin was instrumental in assisting the state’s PPE distribution initiative for area businesses. Her energy and willingness to implement an effective distribution plan helped North Kingstown area businesses receive critically needed PPE supplies,” says John Riendeau, director of business development for the Rhode Island Commerce Corporation.
