Chamber of Commerce
Call, email or fax us to setup an appointment. We share our facility with the local government at the Town Hall of La Grange.
So please respect this arrangement. We do this to better serve our members and at the same time local citizens.
La Grange is a proud, independent and ambitious community, situated 12 miles northwest of Kinston and 13 miles northeast of Goldsboro near the Wayne County Line.
The mission of the Chamber of Commerce is to unite the citizens of this small community to work together to make a difference in the lives of everyone. Learn more about the mission of the La Grange Chamber of Commerce.
The Chamber is not restricted to businesses, and 15% of the Chamber’s membership is comprised of “individual members” and “non-profit organizations."
Membership dues to the Chamber of Commerce may be tax deductible as an ordinary and necessary business expense. Dues paid to the Chamber are not a charitable tax deduction for federal income tax purposes.
In the 1980s the Chamber of Commerce was reactivated and the La Grange Chamber leadership sought the assistance of the Kinston-Lenoir County Chamber. An agreement was reached whereby the Kinston-Lenoir County Chamber would perform all administrative and financial services for the La Grange Chamber of Commerce.
In May 2008, the Board of Directors of the La Grange Chamber of Commerce voted unanimously to separate from the Kinston-Lenoir County Chamber of Commerce and to become its own entity. This was a difficult decision but the Directors were sure that no person or organization could or would represent La Grange better than the people from La Grange. With little money to start its operation, the Board of Directors of the La Grange Chamber of Commerce assumed all duties to insure that the separation from the Kinston-Lenoir County Chamber of Commerce was a success.
In 2009, the Board of Directors of the La Grange Chamber of Commerce hired an Executive Director to handle all of the administrative and financial duties of the Chamber.
La Grange is poised for growth and the Chamber invites you to be a part of this growth. Please join the Chamber in this worthwhile endeavor to advocate business interest, promote economic growth, provide leadership in community affairs, and to enhance the quality of life for the people of La Grange and the surrounding communities. As the Chamber moves forward, an open invitation is issued to businesses, organizations, churches and individuals.
