NCCU Alumna Named to Post with Greater Durham Chamber of Commerce

Posted November 16, 2021, 9:28AM

Angelique Stallings, ’97, was recently named vice president of Community Investment at the Greater Durham Chamber of Commerce.

Stallings is entering the position at a critical time as the Durham community recovers from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the local economy. In her new role, she will consult with Durham businesses for partnership opportunities with the Greater Durham Chamber of Commerce.

The New Bern, N.C., native served as a student-athlete on North Carolina Central University’s women’s basketball team from 1993 to 1997.

“My role with the Greater Durham Chamber of Commerce is very pivotal in the times that we are in. The business community suffered tremendously during the pandemic, which impacted the community as a whole,” said Stallings. “In my new role, I’m making sure that our corporate partners are holding up their end of the bargain for corporate responsibility by making sure to go back and invest in the communities they currently do business in.”

Stallings’ career includes 20 years of experience in the hospitality industry, including stints at the Millennium Hotel Durham and Sheraton Imperial Hotel Raleigh - Durham Airport at Research Triangle Park. She has also served in various roles at Radio One Raleigh.

What began as a side business for Stallings flourished into a business that allowed her to do meaningful political work. In 2008, she established The MochaMind Agency, a public relations and marketing agency. Stallings has worked with the Biden-Harris presidential campaign, as well as other political campaigns across North Carolina.

Stallings’ passion for local politics and voter education is personified with her role as chair of the Civic Committee for the Durham Committee on the Affairs of Black People.

In her spare time, she lends her event planning and marketing skills as a member of the NCCU Forty Under Forty Alumni Awards Planning Committee.

Stallings earned a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from NCCU in 1997.
