Members of this community and around the globe are having to make tough decisions and the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce is prepared to assist you through this time.

We encourage you to consider moving in-person meetings to online or phone conferencing for the next few weeks. Popular options include, Free Conference, Go To Meeting, Zoom, Webex.

The NC Chamber has released a resource guide that can be found here.
