78th Annual Meeting | 2020 Playbook: Keeping NC First in Business
Being named the #1 state for business by Forbes magazine three years in a row does not happen by accident. NC is thriving. But complacency can prove dangerous. Join leaders from across the state at our Annual Meeting for insight into our state’s business climate and strategies that will ensure NC stays on top.
At this event, we will also present the Award for Distinguished Citizenship and Award for Distinguished Service to two individuals who have made an indelible mark on our state by improving their communities and statewide business climate. Our 78th Annual Meeting includes a compelling keynote speaker, a celebration of our award recipients and an update on Chamber-related business.
