N.C. Business and Economic Development Summit

As forecasts show Hurricane Florence is gaining strength and will likely make landfall in the Carolinas, this year’s business summit is CANCELED.

 

North Carolina’s businesses are a vital component of our national economy and must be afforded every opportunity to prosper, grow and create jobs. In an effort to give community leaders the opportunity to meet with federal government officials and discuss policies that affect our local economies, I invite you to attend the 2018 North Carolina Business & Economic Development Summit.
 
The 2018 Summit will be held on Thursday, September 13 and Friday, September 14.

I am pleased to announce the 2018 Summit will be hosted by myself and the entire North Carolina Congressional delegation: U.S. Representatives G.K. Butterfield (NC-01), George Holding (NC-02), Walter Jones (NC-03), David Price (NC-04), Virginia Foxx (NC-05), Mark Walker (NC-06), David Rouzer (NC-07), Robert Pittenger (NC-09), Patrick McHenry (NC-10), Mark Meadows (NC-11), Alma Adams (NC-12), Ted Budd (NC-13), and U.S. Senators Richard Burr and Thom Tillis.
