Highlands Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors

The Chamber Board of Directors represent a cross-section of business and professional leadership in the community. The Chamber serves two primary purposes. One as a Chamber of Commerce which provides leadership to support the local business community promoting favorable economic growth in the area. The second purpose as Visit Highlands, NC (destination marketing) which informs, connects, and inspires our residents and visitors with the goal to drive destination economic impact, job creation, community sustainability, and quality of life. 

Genuine and unselfish interest in the Chamber and Visit Highlands, NC objectives is the first requirement for Board Members. The Chamber holds monthly Board meetings on the third Tuesday of each month at 8:30am.
