Regional Sessions to Inform the NC Strategic Economic Development Plan

On behalf of the North Carolina Department of Commerce, the ncIMPACT Initiative at the School of Government will host eight regional sessions to collect input from stakeholders across the state that will inform North Carolina’s Strategic Economic Development Plan.  A session is available in each of the state’s prosperity zones and will run from 10 am - 2 pm.  *The Oct. 30 offering in Cherokee will run 1 pm - 5 pm

The regional sessions will be critical to creating the state’s new strategic economic development plan, which will guide policymakers and practitioners in their work to generate more economic prosperity in the state. They will begin with an exploration of key regional and sub-regional economic data. We will then seek feedback on proposed priorities from stakeholders to ensure that the regional findings are both accurate and tell the full story of each region’s economy. We want to hear from you about what works in your region and what additional supports from the state could maximize opportunities. We expect rich discussions with a gathering of diverse stakeholders.

Lunch will be provided. Registration is free.  Capacity is limited. Once we reach capacity, we will maintain a waiting list and release spaces as they become available.

If for any reason you need to change sessions or cannot attend, please email Toogie Hampton so we can accommodate someone on the waiting list. We look forward to seeing you this fall!
