What does it mean to be a member?

The North Carolina Chamber exists because a group of business leaders got together (in our case, more than 70 years ago) because they realized that what happens at the state capitol matters to their business. In fact, roughly 40 percent of the laws that impact business are passed at the state level. So much of our work positively impacts the expense side of your ledger. Issues such as taxes, workers’ compensation, unemployment insurance, healthcare mandates, regulations, environmental and safety issues, legal and tort reform, among others, are all issues in which we focus. In addition, the Chamber has been a longtime advocate for education and workforce development. We are here to fight for you.
