About the Alliance
The Rhode Island Alliance for Business Resilience (the Alliance) is a self-governed public-private partnership focused on improving the resilience of Rhode Island businesses and local communities.
Formal discussions between business leaders and state government officials began in January 2016. The participants recognized the potential for greater resilience and speed of recovery if businesses and business associations are collectively focused under a statewide umbrella and moved forward on that basis.
In the year since it came together, the steering committee defined its mission and objectives and hammered out a governance document. It is a work in progress but the founding principles are solid and the Alliance is ready to expand and welcome new members and partners.
