Get to Know Our Member Services & Small Business Director
For Shanita Robinson, the Raleigh Chamber allows her to live out her passion for helping small businesses. Since 2022, Shanita has worked for the Raleigh Chamber and now serves as our Member Services & Small Business Director, but she is no stranger to the Chamber community. She previously worked at the Holly Springs Chamber of Commerce. When asked why she came to the Raleigh Chamber, Shanita says, “The Raleigh Chamber gives me the unique opportunity to reach a broader audience of small businesses and further impact people’s lives.” Through the Chamber, Shanita has been able to continuously make a difference in the efforts and successes of small businesses.
As a part of her role, Shanita is the go-to person for small business owners. Her daily tasks include helping businesses maximize their membership and directing members to different resources including one of her favorites, the Small Business Resource Guide
. In her meetings with small business owners, Shanita often suggests new ways to utilize the Chambers’s resources to aid in their organization’s growth. Shanita’s position also allows her to learn about many different small businesses and develop lasting bonds with the owners and managers.
In her role, Shanita is always looking for new ways to help the small business community and is excited to see how the Chamber’s new streamlined structure
will enable that even more. She describes the Chamber as “a connector and advocator for the business community” and is excited to help the Chamber increase small business programming and continue doing what she loves. Want to meet Shanita? Register for Networking 101 with Gina Stephens
