Business-to-business expos are conducted annually which allow members to market their products and services to other Chamber members and the community.

Green Plus

Chamber members can participate in a sustainability program that focuses on practical, achievable, cost-effective steps that will help businesses "go green" and provide long run benefits and, frequently, short run as well. It was developed with smaller enterprise is mind, those with 500 or fewer employees. Participating businesses can achieve certification in the program with reasonable effort that won’t put a strain on staff time. The sustainability program is being sponsored by Chamber member Piedmont Natural Gas. There is a fee for participation in Green Plus.
