The Chamber of Hickory Nut Gorge – Your advocate and representative with Local Government

Much of the work on behalf of our members or in the name of strengthening tourism and the local economy is slow, quiet work involving a lot of collaborative partners. One such partner is the Town of Lake Lure.

Your Chamber and its board leadership is committed to having a seat at the table when it comes to the decisions and direction we all take to move the Gorge forward.

That commitment is indeed collaborative, as the Town of Lake Lure is the largest financial stakeholder support that the Chamber has. We take this level of support seriously and understand that it means we work closely with the Town in identifying and executing together those initiatives and projects that will best benefit the citizens and visitors to our area.

Over the next year, we will provide updates to our members on how we are specifically working with the Town on several economic and community development fronts.

For now, you may wish to review the Chamber’s 2019 State of the Hickory Nut Gorge Chamber Presentation to the Town of Lake Lure, delivered earlier this summer. You can find it on our website, www.hickorynutchamber.org  Look for “State of the Hickory Nut Gorge Chamber Presentation” at the bottom of our homepage.
