Hello {{CFirstName}},


Good morning! Was your competitive spirit rekindled during March Madness? Looking for an opportunity to bring a championship back to Chapel Hill?


Your chance to hoist the 2022 Community Bocce Derby 🏆  is just under a three weeks away. The Community Bocce Derby, presented by Piedmont Health, will take place on April 21 at the UNC Faculty Farm. I would love to see you for a fun-filled afternoon of bocce with local business leaders, BBQ from Vimala's Curryblossom Café, and refreshments from Vecino Brewing Company. Please register here.


Not interested in playing but want to attend for the networking, food, and fun? We're looking for line judges and volunteers to assist with registration. If interested, please email McKenzie Reinhold.

In partnership,
Aury St. Germain
Communications Manager

Primary Elections are often punctuated with little interest and low turnout. But in Orange County, NC, where many more Democrats are registered than Republicans, the winner of the spring Primary Election almost always wins the General Election in November. Primaries matter in Orange County. Learn more about the upcoming Primary Election and review the list of candidates.

Three New Faces!

Member News

Chapel Hill resident and Chamber member Jonathan Mills felt called to help the people of Ukraine in the midst of international turmoil. After having lived in Poland for ten years, and having familiarity with the country of Ukraine, Mills knew he wanted to travel abroad to help.


“I’ve done anything from going to border crossings and bringing refugees back to Warsaw, to picking up dozens of bags of aid packages at the airport, to helping refugees at Warsaw Central Train Station," said Mills. "There are many volunteers and like so many Europeans they speak 3, 4, 5 languages. Sometimes I feel like my contribution is less effective than theirs, but I do what I can with my adequate Polish and English.”
