Committees and Programs
Events that invite member participation:
SMALL BUSINESS ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSIONS
Small Business Roundtable Discussions provide a forum for business leaders to come together to network, discuss business issues, needs, and success stories, local government plans, legislation and regulations impacting our business community today and/or the potential to do so in the future, community resources, strategies for sales, referrals and networking, shoulder and off-season business drivers and planning, recruiting and employment opportunities and concerns. Be sure to bring your business cards!
BUSINESS AFTER HOURS EVENTS
Business after Hour Events provides an opportunity for members to make valuable new business contacts in a relaxed social setting. The more connected you are, the more opportunities you have to increase sales, make wise investments, influence opinion and hire the best people. That is the power of partnership.
Training workshops are offered for our Currituck business owners and staff, and include topics such as networking, sales, business planning, human resources, recruiting, compliance, customer service, time management and retirement. Additional workshops will continue to be added based on your input!

The Currituck Business Expo and Job Fair, held each year in March, is an opportunity for Currituck businesses, community organizations, government agencies, and non-profit groups to market themselves and their products/services to the local community, as well as to other businesses and organizations.
