Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce Member:
Recognizing that our local, regional, and state educational systems are foundational to a healthy business & economic climate, the Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce remains committed to working with our local elected officials in Huntersville, Cornelius, and Davidson, our regional elected officials in the City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County, and our state representatives in the NC General Assembly to seek healthy ways to address both current and ongoing needs of our students and teachers.
We are blessed to live in a region which is growing, but there are challenges which come with that. The Lake Norman Chamber encourages ongoing constructive conversation at all levels of government and in our business community so that our school systems can continue to have the opportunity to perform at a high level and continue to make the Lake Norman region a beautiful place to live, work, and play.
