Get involved in the Chamber

The Lake Norman Chamber Business Expo is the largest businesses to business trade show of its kind in the Lake Norman region. Held annually in June, it is attended by nearly 3,000 people and boasts 180 business exhibitors and nonprofits.

The Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce, with approximately 1,000 business members, has been serving the Lake Norman region since 1987.

Many people join the Chamber to network and build stronger business connections through the mixers, Business After Hours and Before Hours events. The Chamber often hosts networking events with the Charlotte, Mooresville, Lincolnton and Statesville chambers to bring the members together with other businesses in different markets.

Events such as the Business Expo, with 180 businesses and organizations, showcases the region to 2,500-3,000 people every year. New businesses are encouraged to host ribbon cuttings, and each year we have recognitions of our Small Business, Diversity Champion and Business Person of the Year.
The Lake Norman Chamber hosts several seminars a month to help businesses improve their management, marketing and operations through Business Works, Tech Talks, Economic Forecasts and other seminars and programs.

Programs such as the Diversity Council work to promote female and minority business development. The e-Commerce Division focuses on internet-based retail business. The Chamber partners with business and education through the Lake Norman Education Collaborative and a special group was formed in 2014, the Lake Norman Young Professionals, to get young people 21-39 engaged in the business community.
Other outstanding programs of the Chamber include its Leadership Lake Norman program, Junior Leadership Lake Norman and Academy of Political Leadership.

The Lake Norman Chamber is the voice of our regional business community, working with local, county, state and federal officials on a host of issues ranging from local transportation and education to taxes and business regulations. Monthly Power Luncheons and Focus Friday events keep members informed on issues which impact their bottom line. The Chamber is also pleased to host candidate forums in each of the towns to ensure the businesses and citizens have a voice in who leads our growing and diverse region.
