At the Greater Durham Chamber of Commerce, we know that nobody knows Durham County business better than the people who live it each day. That’s why we’ve developed committees to help you make a difference, grow your business and maximize your membership.
Committees are the life-blood of our organization. With dedicated Chairs serving in a leadership capacity, each one does important work in support of the strategic mission of the Chamber.
Participation is a great way to broaden your network of contacts and learn about issues that impact you.
Get involved and thrive!
