Chamber Board Chair

Nancy Johns Board ChairWelcome to the Fuquay-Varina Chamber of Commerce, where we offer a “dash more” to our members, and our community! While the Chamber office resides on Main Street in the historic Fuquay Springs section of town, we enthusiastically work to support businesses, and business interests in all areas of our town. This includes the two thriving historic downtown areas of Fuquay Springs and Varina, as well as all other areas of our vibrant community.

As a local business owner that services customers nationwide, with the flexibility to locate anywhere in the United States, our presence in Fuquay-Varina for the past 29 years testifies to the fact that this is a great place to operate a business. Residents and businesses benefit from this location in southwestern Wake County with access to a great public school system, top notch secondary education options, a well-educated work force, solid transportation infrastructure, access to quality healthcare, an international airport, rich arts and entertainment options, and a community that is collaborative and supportive.

After years of steady growth, we are a community that both honors our history, and welcomes newcomers and new ideas. The Chamber is proud to play a role in enabling this growth with several outstanding programs such as Innovate FV, Leadership FV and the Professional Women’s Leadership Association.

I would like to thank our members for your support of the Chamber and our local community! I’m honored to serve as your Chamber Board Chair for 2016. Our board and staff are dedicated to providing you with value for your membership. We are always interested in providing programming and services that are helpful for you. Please reach out to us with your ideas at one of our regularly scheduled networking events, or our Membership Appreciation & Awards Banquet. I’m always interested to hear from you. My email is nancyjohns@bobbarker.com.

We have some great community events planned for 2016 and look forward to seeing you at our Run the Quay, Savor Fuquay-Varina, “Core Connections” Business Expo and the Christmas Parade! We are also excited to support the WRAL Freedom Balloon Festival over Memorial Day Weekend with a Merchants Village!

I am proud of what the Chamber of Commerce has contributed to our community and I look forward to another good year!
