About the Chamber

Our Mission

The Durham Chamber is a member-driven organization that serves its members by helping to create and sustain a healthy economic climate for the Durham community.

Through leadership and collaboration, the Chamber engages the Greater Durham business community, elected officials and regional partners in proactive business initiatives that foster Durham’s innovative business environment and creates opportunities for Durham and its residents to thrive and grow.

Our Team

The history behind the buildings and outdoor spaces in Durham is amazing, but it is the diversity of people who animate these spaces that makes the community special, including the Chamber team.
