About The Chamber's Election Engagement  

Chamber Activation: The Chamber engages in Primary and General Elections to ensure Chamber members and friends have the information they need about the candidates and the process before they cast their votes.

  • Annually, The Chamber activates the Election Hub, which is a one-stop shop to share timely election information, and hosts Coffee with the Candidates (part of the Critical Issues Series).
  • When relevant, The Chamber conducts candidate surveys to reveal candidate positions on issues that matter to the local business community. Past candidate surveys: Orange County Commissioners 20202018; Chapel Hill Town Council 202120192017; and Carrboro Town Council 20212019, and 2017.
  • Previously (from 2017-2020), The Chamber coordinated the (un)forum to share candidate videos and connect candidates with Chamber members. Past (un)forums: 202020192018, and 2017.
