Chamber Web link profiles Rockford’s diversity

Regional Chamber of Commerce creates online Multi-Cultural Resource Guide

Rockford is an international city made up of many races, cultures and ethnic backgrounds. To offer a resource that explores this rich culture, the Rockford Regional Chamber of Commerce Community Outreach Committee has created a Multi-Cultural Resource Guide on the Chamber’s Web site at

A city this rich and diverse in ethnicity lends itself to dozens of cultural learning experiences with numerous ethnic dance troupes, fellowship organizations, festivals and parades celebrating many heritages. Other organizations provide high school and college students with opportunities to live and study in other countries or opportunities for businesses to expand their sales in Canada, Mexico or abroad.
