Business After Hours

The Durham Chamber’s Business After Hours events are a great way to catch up with peers in the Triangle and meet new business people.

Business After Hours events rotate to different Durham based businesses to showcase some of the best organizations in the area and to create a casual atmosphere for networking and catching up.

Join us for a cocktail or a bite of food at the next Business After Hours by checking our calendar.

Ribbon Cuttings

The Chamber has found that Ribbon Cuttings are a great way to generate excitement around a business opening.  Often, politicians will join for the ceremony, and the general public loves to hear about new businesses.

Sign up for a Ribbon Cutting today by filling out this form to gandrews@durhamchamber.org.


Power Hour

Power Hour is a free, innovative initiative of the Greater Durham Chamber of Commerce designed to address critical topics and to help prepare Chamber members to meet the ever-changing demands of the workplace. These monthly (Wednesday at 8:30 a.m.) educational opportunities provide members with valuable tools and information they can take back to their businesses and utilize to help them achieve the success they desire. The program provides individualized growth and development opportunities for entry level to executive leadership covering the entire gamut from “nuts & bolts” to “visionary thinking.”

Who should attend? The program is free and open to any member of the Durham community!
