The Annual Meeting is the North Carolina Chamber’s flagship event. Each year, the NC Chamber recognizes two individuals who have an outstanding sense of public responsibility by honoring them with the Distinguished Citizenship Award and Distinguished Public Service Award. Our 76th Annual Meeting will be structured as an afternoon program, including a compelling keynote speaker and a celebration of the NC Chamber’s two annual award winners. The event concludes with a networking reception, replete with complimentary cocktails and wine, allowing sponsors and guests to connect with influencers and political leaders from across the state in a relaxed setting.
