The Raleigh Chamber is proud to serve as a connector for our business community. We provide the resources businesses need to start, grow, and succeed in the Triangle region. Our members have access to our membership directory, small business resources, events calendar, job board, sponsorship opportunities, and much more. In addition, we offer a variety of programs and services to help businesses succeed.
It’s been an incredible year, and the Chamber team has achieved outstanding sustainable successes that will continue to positively impact our companies. Check out the accomplishments and upcoming initiatives below.
The Chamber and its staff are grateful for the dedication and commitment of its 2021/22 Executive Committee and Board of Directors. We are fortunate to have such an engaged and dedicated group of business leaders who volunteer their time and expertise to help us achieve our mission.
We owe a great deal of our success to their support and leadership and are excited to continue working with the 2022/23 Executive Committee and Board of Directors, led by Board Chair, Dan Cahill of Poyner Spruill LLP, to make our region the best place to live and work as we begin a new fiscal year on Oct. 1.
The Executive Committee and Board of Directors represent a variety of industries across our membership and will work closely with Chamber staff and volunteers over the next year to further our mission of building a thriving regional economy, enhancing the community’s quality of life, and strengthening member businesses.
