Greater Together for 50 Years and Beyond
Check out the first Chamber logo! This was the emblem created for the merger of the Smithfield and Selma chambers in 1970. Although the number of towns, colors, and tag-line has changed, the focus on progress has not. We are still working on behalf of the Triangle East Region and moving forward in building new opportunities, a flourishing business community, and a great quality of life!

Let's Celebrate Our Teachers!
Because of the importance of teachers in developing and educating children, the Triangle East Chamber of Commerce has adopted the Flame For Learning Award. In so doing, it is our goal to support and elevate the teaching profession in the public schools. This award recognizes outstanding creativity and innovation in the classroom and nominees are selected strictly on merit, without regard to school or residence. The recipient of the award is named the Johnston County Teacher of the Year and will represent the Johnston County Public School System in the North Carolina Teacher of the Year competition.
