Who We Are
The Kinston-Lenoir County Chamber of Commerce is a 501(c) 6 non-profit association with approximately 500 members. It is an organization made up of a coalition of businesses, non-profits, and individual members that work together to improve the business environment and the quality of life for our community. Through the collective resources of the chamber, we provide programs, training, and opportunities to increase the marketing reach of our business partners. The Chamber serves as the business center of our community and works to promote a thriving business climate, quality educational opportunities for all, and serves as a catalyst for economic growth. Each year the Chamber of Commerce publishes a document outlining our intended action plans for the year. We invite you to read the current year’s Program of Work.
