We are now the Portland Metro Chamber

June 2023

We are excited to announce that the Portland Business Alliance will now be the Portland Metro Chamber. While our name and look might be changing, our mission to create opportunity and advance well-being for all who live and work here and our commitment to the greater Portland region remains the same. We will still connect people, provide opportunities to shape the business leaders of tomorrow and advocate on behalf of employers and the business community.

Why we changed our name

We weren’t planning on changing our name. But, as our organization has evolved and grown to reflect our changing community, we realized that we needed a name that better represented who we are: the chamber of commerce for the Portland metropolitan region.

What about Portland Business Alliance?

The Portland Business Alliance name won’t be going away. It will now correctly represent the collective three organizations, Downtown Portland Clean & Safe, the Portland Metro Chamber and Partners in Diversity, under the Charitable Institute. Our three organizations share a commitment to making this region and state a better and more equitable place for everyone and we are stronger together.
