In Case You Missed It:

  • Last Tuesday, 2/2, Orange County Commissioners stood up the new Broadband Task Force and did not give business a seat at the table. Engaging high speed internet providers is critical for ensuring the county has a plan that can best leverage new technologies and close the broadband gap. We strongly encouraged the commissioners to ensure the voice of business is informing the process as the Task Force is charged with "recommending a plan to the Commissioners to expand reliable high-speed internet services to all county residents and businesses."
  • Last Tuesday, The Chamber announced the 2021 Board of Directors, which includes the most diverse class of new directors. 
  • This past Monday, the Carrboro Business Alliance announced a buy local campaign to commemorate Valentine's Day and For the Love of Carrboro. Visit for 30 flirty local gifts, meals, and experiences to show and share your #CarrboroLove. 


  • Tune-in to 97.9 The Hill WCHL for Conversations with the Mayors sponsored by The Chamber For a Greater Chapel Hill-Carrboro.  This is a great way to stay up-to-date and hear directly from our elected officials on matters that matter to your business. 
  • Find quick contacts for your elected officials and media in this handy contact page.  

As always, let me know if you need anything or have any government affairs and advocacy questions.
