Metro Chapter Program of Work

Jeff Mann, Chair

To provide leadership on public policy and economic issues for the business community of Center City Charlotte and to increase value to Charlotte Chamber Metro Chapter membership.

The Metro Chapter board will effectively connect and communicate with members by:

  1. Identify non-Charlotte Chamber businesses in our geographic footprint and encourage participation in our monthly luncheons, exposing them to our resources, members and opportunities via Membership Challenge with Chamber staff
  2. Attract a new audience by leveraging board leadership network and partnerships with other professional organizations, specifically in the cultural community
  3. Seek and participate in relevant partnerships with other Chapters
