About The Reno+Sparks Chamber
In 1890, the Reno Commercial Club and the Reno Business League were formed to enhance Reno as a commercial center. And in 1919, they merged and incorporated to form The Reno Chamber of Commerce.
During the 1970's the Chamber expanded to include the City of Sparks. Now, the Reno + Sparks Chamber of Commerce is the largest business organization in northern Nevada with over 2,000+ members who employ over 100,000+ individuals in Washoe County. We provide over 4 million referrals to our members each year and graduate 30 participants in our Leadership Reno + Sparks program.
The Chamber is the voice for business in Washoe County by focusing on the three pillars of value:

“Lasting impact on personal and professional relationships...
Their networking events (Ribbon Cuttings, Luncheons, Connect90, etc.) have greatly expanded my connections within our business community. Annual events such as Connections and the Northern Nevada Business Summit provide incredible speakers and some of the latest business information and strategies.
I look forward to working with The Chamber for many years.”
