The Durham Chamber Small Business Council is focused on providing the activities, resources, and opportunities to help you grow personally and professionally, which impacts your business growth. We would love to hear from you how we can better serve you, and how you would like to engage with the chamber.

In my two years as a member, I have found that the Durham Chamber “gets it”. Our Chamber understands that we want support in meeting new people, learning new things, and building our businesses. I have seen people getting involved and through that involvement have met great people, built long-term relationships, and drove business growth. The Durham Chamber is a place where being a small business owner isn’t so lonely – because others are in the same boat. Running a small business is tough. It’s even tougher when you do it alone. Our Chamber is here to make sure we get connected and grow together.

We want you to join with us to build the Durham Chamber into the strongest business booster in the region. Our Chamber is innovative, motivated to help us, and is working hard every day to bring more opportunities to the region so that we can more easily achieve our goals.

I look forward to seeing you soon at our Chamber!
