About 75 people attended the New Members Reception at Chamber headquarters November 17, hosted by the Board of Directors.

New members and their guests were welcomed by Chamber Chair Kerry Youngblood, President of Carteret Community College.  He thanked them for their investment in the Chamber and emphasized that the Chamber of Commerce is all about promoting commerce in our local communities.

Dr. Youngblood encouraged the new members to participate in the Chamber’s networking functions and get involved in Chamber projects.  He said the Chamber’s new website is helping the Chamber to offer even more interactive communications.

“This is the finest local Chamber of Commerce I have ever been associated with, and we are reaching for even greater market penetration, offering more benefit and value for your investment,” Dr. Youngblood said.
