Burke County Chamber of Commerce


Growing Business. Building Community.


Chamber Resource Hub

The Burke County Chamber of Commerce is devoted to the Burke County business community. As we all prepare to re-open, our team has created a Open & Safe Playbook that will be a great guide.   The Chamber will continue to maintain the Chamber Resource Hub in an effort to provide the latest Coronavirus (COVID-19) updates and helpful resources.

As North Carolina’s restaurants, hotels, attractions and businesses reopen after the COVID-19 stay-at-home order, Count On Me NC is a mutual pledge and public health initiative that empowers guests and businesses to help keep everyone safe and protected. Take your pledge today! https://countonmenc.org/
