About the GRC
Serving Not Only Rostraver, but Far Beyond: A Message from the Executive Director
The Greater Rostraver Chamber of Commerce, a relatively young (established in 2006), progressing organization is the local chamber that offers service to more than just the Belle Vernon/Rostraver Township areas. Our service area extends far beyond to include Perryopolis, West Newton, Star Junction, Sutersville, Elizabeth Township, Smithton and surrounding communities in Allegheny, Fayette, Washington and Westmoreland Counties.

Within five miles from the GRC office location, I can reach any of our neighboring four counties. My office location is the center point of our service area, with easy access to Rt. 201, Rt. 51 and Interstate 70. We have members in Uniontown, Washington, Pleasant Hills, Bridgeville and of course locally that look to the GRC to help with their business needs. Our membership is a group of community-minded, small business owners, independent contractors, regional and corporate companies, non-profits and individuals who are concerned about enhancing local economic development.
Membership with the GRC is open to any business, regardless of location. Membership with the GRC is an effective way to communicate to consumers that your business is reputable, as consumers are 63% more likely to purchase goods and services from a member of the chamber of commerce. (Shapiro Report). Our goal at the Greater Rostraver Chamber of Commerce is to create opportunities for member prosperity by providing referrals, networking, publicity, marketing, education and resources, while maintaining personal service and contact. I always welcome a trip out of the office to visit our members or to meet with prospective members, whether in Rostraver or far beyond.
The Greater Rostraver Chamber of Commerce strives to be the primary source that businesses and organizations of the Greater Rostraver Area utilize to promote growth and success. We create opportunities for member prosperity by providing the highest quality education and training. The GRC partners with local, county, and state government to provide the necessary leadership for a healthy business community.
The GRC is a team of committed, positive, and caring people who always look to the best interests of the businesses and organizations we serve. We understand and fully support our Vision Statement. We are in the business of serving the businesses and organizations of the Greater Rostraver area by providing them with opportunities that will allow them to be successful and prosper.
