“I am honored to receive a second term on the Chamber’s Board of Directors,” stated Forrest.  “The Chamber has been a key contributor to my firm’s success over the last year.  I’ve seen first-hand, countless times, how the Chamber connects people who need each other’s expertise and services to reach their respective professional goals.  My goal as a board member for 2012 remains the same as it’s always been—to help others see the power of the Chamber and help them, through sponsoring and leading events, to take full advantage of the networking and educational opportunities that the Chamber consistently provides.”

The Greater Durham Chamber of Commerce provides a variety of services to its member businesses, including networking events, educational services, and social activities, all with an intense focus on economic development for the Durham business community.
