City-to-City Leadership Visits
The Chamber plans an annual trip to another city that has figured “it” out to introduce our business and community leaders to innovative projects and best practices. Attendees network, learn, and bring home ideas that can be adapted and implemented in our community.
The 2017 City-to-City Leadership Visit will be Sept. 18-20 in Raleigh, N.C. A group of fifty business and community leaders will learn from their peers in the Research Triangle. More specific focus areas will be announced in the coming months.
Please contact Stef Flores to make your reservation and for more information.
