Build Relationships

The Caswell Chamber of Commerce creates opportunities for the Caswell businesses, entreprenuers and farmers to gather and fellowship. Our meetings foster leadership development and sharing to build a strong business community.


Our signature events include our annual membership banquet and golf tournament—two of the biggest events the community has to offer for meeting leaders in the area. Our fall festival, the Bright Leaf Hoedown ongoing for nearly 40 years, is the largest Caswell County community event providing an environment where our businesses and entrepreneurs are able to showcase their offerings all in a fun and creative way.

Meet and Greets

Whether a ‘business at breakfast’ or ‘business after hours’ our meet and greets provide a fun environment at various member locations in the county. These events are free to attend and are an excellent way to promote your products and services while also building relationships with business contacts to help grow your businesses.  Out current meet and greet series is the Connecting Caswell Business Leaders Networking that spotlights area leaders as they share with the community the work their organizations are doing and the positive impacts it has on our county.

Lunch and Learns are coordinated with the local state credit union and the Chamber partners with other groups to promote their activities as well.
