Chamber of Commerce

About The Chamber

The Kenansville-Duplin County Chamber of Commerce, Inc. was organized for the purpose of advancing the economic, commercial, professional, industrial, cultural, and civic welfare of Duplin County and the Kenansville area. We encourage and work for the growth of existing businesses and industries, along with giving all proper assistance to any new firms or individuals seeking to locate to the Duplin County or Kenansville area. We encourage and support all those activities believed to be beneficial to the community and area.  We hold dear the history of Kenansville and remember the past while at the same time striving to move forward and build a great community for the future.  We invite you to join our efforts.
