An Annual Affair

Energizing Rural North Carolina

Energizing Rural North Carolina 2019 is an event that will convene key stakeholders, influencers and decision makers across the state to inspire progress within rural communities on workforce development. Local economic developers from all 100 counties are invited to attend.

This year’s statewide conference will address three topics: talent retention, talent attraction and talent development. In each area, we’ll present case studies that emphasize actionable strategies that local economic developers can take home to inspire successful workforce initiatives in their own communities.

We are asking each county to bring a team of local influencers who can help your community meet its workforce challenges. The event will be open to media. This year’s event is sponsored by Sanford-Lee County.

 

Registration is now closed.

 
 
The big picture impact—it was galvanizing. The sum of the parts was much bigger than the individual pieces.
