Business Summit Postponed Due to Hurricane Irma Concerns
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08) released the following statement announcing the North Carolina Congressional delegation has postponed next week’s North Carolina Business and Economic Development Summit in Washington, D.C. and will work to reschedule the event:
“As forecasts indicate Hurricane Irma could make its way towards North Carolina and out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to reschedule this year’s business summit,” said Rep. Hudson. “While this is an important and popular event, the safety and well-being of our constituents is our number one priority. I look forward to working with my colleagues to reschedule the event and continuing the conversations with our constituents about what we can do to promote job creation and strengthen our economy.”
The 21st annual business summit was scheduled for September 11th and 12th in Washington, D.C. This year, the summit is being hosted by Rep. Hudson and the entire North Carolina 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.
In addition to briefings by the entire North Carolina Congressional delegation, speakers at this year’s summit were to include Speaker Paul Ryan, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, SBA Administrator Linda McMahon, North Carolina Lt. Governor Dan Forest, North Carolina Commerce Secretary Tony Copeland, and other members of congressional leadership and the Trump administration.

Last year, nearly 200 workers and business leaders from across the state attended the summit to discuss ways to spur economic growth and bring jobs home to North Carolina. In addition to invaluable collaboration, attendees heard from special guests, including state leaders, officials from the Administration and Capitol Hill, and media experts.
