Vision Statement

Havelock’s voice for business and community success.

Serving our Community

Located at 201 Tourist Center Drive inside the Havelock Tourist and Event Center, the Havelock Chamber of Commerce provides a platform for businesses to come together to work towards common goals and serve as a collective voice to advocate business issues.

Being a member of the Havelock Chamber means investing in the future of the area. Being a member of the Havelock Chamber is good for business, your business. We encourage visitors, citizens of Havelock and the surrounding area to support the members of the Havelock Chamber of Commerce as they help to build a strong growing community. We encourage you to take advantage of the Havelock Chamber's services and to become involved in programs that are of specific interest to you. Most of all we thank you for your continued investment in your Havelock Chamber of Commerce.

The Havelock Chamber of Commerce is proud to be a Chamber that sets itself apart from the others by giving back to the community through our events. These events raise money for the local non-profits and schools in our community to help the citizens of Havelock remain strong. The Havelock Chamber of Commerce is also very proud to work closely with MCAS Cherry Point, one of the largest Marine corps Air Stations in the world and Fleet Readiness Center, East, the largest industrial employer east of I-95. 

These two entities are the largest economic force in Eastern North Carolina with an economic impact of $2.0 Billion annually.
