Chamber opposes Amendment One

The Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce board of directors has unanimously decided to encourage its members to vote against Amendment One on the May ballot.

Amendment One would define marriage as only between a man and a woman. The chamber plans to educate the community and its members about the negative impacts the constitutional amendment could have on business and economic development.

Chamber President and CEO Aaron Nelson said the proposed amendment will hinder employers’ ability to provide competitive benefits and will send a message that North Carolina is not welcoming to a diverse workforce.
