The North Carolina Chamber is a nonpartisan business advocacy organization that works in the legislative, regulatory and political arenas to proactively drive positive change to ensure that North Carolina is a leading place in the world to do business.
As the state’s largest, broad-based business advocacy organization, the North Carolina Chamber has 35,000 members who employ 1.26 million workers in North Carolina. Through their investment and engagement, the Chamber operates a fully-integrated enterprise that utilizes a multi-tiered strategy to secure North Carolina’s future: The North Carolina Chamber Foundation is shaping the future with a long-term strategy for economic prosperity, the North Carolina Chamber advocates for the policies that move the state forward and the North Carolina Chamber Political Program analyzes and shapes the political landscape to make change possible.
Driving the agenda for those efforts is North Carolina Vision 2030 – A Plan for Accelerating Job Growth and Securing North Carolina’s Future, a forward-thinking, initiative-driven plan that provides focused economic development strategies to create good jobs for North Carolinians. It is built on the premise that in order to be a winner in the global jobs war, North Carolina must strive for excellence in four key “Pillars of a Secure Future,” which include education and talent supply, competitive business climate, entrepreneurship and innovation, and infrastructure and growth leadership.
The North Carolina Chamber has built critical momentum around this future-focused plan for our state, and it is forging ahead to make your business and North Carolina even more competitive in the national and global race for jobs.
