Using the Chamber's Research Department

Networking at Charlotte Chamber events and volunteering on committees are important parts of taking advantage of your chamber membership. But have you considered how you might use research and data available from the chamber to grow your business?

The chamber's research staff, part of our Economic Development group, has a wide array of research and data available to members, much of which is at your fingertips on this Web site. Economic and demographic indicators in the Economic Development portion of our site can assist companies in many ways, such as deciding the best geographic area to target for sales, analyzing the most beneficial places to expand, or planning strategic market analysis. Also available is a geographic information system (GIS) application that allows you to pull demographic and radial analysis reports for a particular address or area. Finally, we offer several directories and reports that can serve as leads: Major Employer’s Directory, Manufacturer’s Directory, Foreign Firms Listings and Quarterly New and Expanded Business Report, which can all be found in our online store.

We encourage you to take advantage of our research staff and their products. Don't understand some of the data you see? Our staff is always willing to answer your questions. Contact our director of research at 704.378.1327.
